Thanks to Michelle Obama's Mirror's Blog for giving me a much-needed laugh. I am so sick of this first woman Supreme Court Justice, second woman Supreme Court Justice, third woman Supreme Court Justice, fourth woman Supreme Court Justice. For the love of God--haven't we gotten beyond this sort of crap yet?
"One of these things is not like the other . . ."
Hopefully Kagen will soon be getting some fashion advice from her colleagues. Or alternately, depending on your "orientation," this from Ann Coulter: "Ruth Bader Ginsburg will no longer be known as the 'pretty one.'"
Update. Allahpundit on HotAir asks, "Is the Kagan battle a battle worth fighting? Or in the words of Evan Bayh, isn't it just "sad kabuki theater"?
Honestly, I don't think it is worth the fight. She's going to be confirmed. She has no paper trail to speak of. It's not going to change the makeup of the court. What's the point?
Update #2. Doctor Zero, whose stuff shows up now and then at HotAir and whom I really respect, says that Republicans should push back against Kagan even though it's not likely that she won't be confirmed. Push back because "[s]he isn't a very good nominee. Was there no one with a more impressive resume, and a greater volume of published work, who could be nominated?" the Doctor asks. See the entire post here, "Opposing Kagan"--excellent read.
