On Monday, President Barack Obama nominated solicitor general Elena Kagan to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court. Kagan’s nomination has raised eyebrows among progressives. Despite a long career in legal academia, Kagan has published very little. She seems to have studiously avoided taking a stand on almost any controversial issue. Ruth Coniff of the Progressive calls the Kagan pick “a triumph of the bland.”

While we know very little about Kagan, we do know one key difference between regressives and progressives: Regressives, sometime referred to as conservatives in polite company, actually have a voice in the Republican Party. And, when given the opportunity to appoint a judge onto the Supreme Court, the regressives have no problem nominating right wing lunatic activists judges like Sam Alito & John Roberts with a long paper trial.

It struck me as a good idea to go over what all the departments within the Cabinet do and their sub-departments. This is the first on the DoJ.
