On Sunday, Attorney General Eric Holder heaped massive praise on Elena Kagan on "Meet the Press." Late that night, state-controlled NBC broke the news thatshe was Obama's Supreme Court pick, andwithin minutes, the other State-Controlled Media outlets hopped on the bandwagon.
So why would Obama nominate a person to the highest court in the land who has zip, zero, nada experience as a judge? Well, it means she has zip, zero, nada paper trail as a judge.
And, it fits: the least-experienced, least-qualified president in our history chooses the least-experienced, least-qualified nominee. Now, this isn't her first nomination to a high court: Bill Clinton nominated her to the Appeals Court,but that was at the end of his term; there was no vote on her nomination.
So there will be a big fight over the nomination. On April 18, the Washington Post published an article predicting that "foes may target Kagan's stance on military recruitment at Harvard." Here's the story: Four months after she became the dean of Harvard Law School, Ms. Kagan sent an angry e-mail to faculty and students because military recruiters had come to the campus. The law required Harvard allow the recruiters on campus, but Kagan wrote, "This action causes me deep distress. I abhor the military's discriminatory recruitment policy."
That one e-mail made her a hugehero to liberals, who abhor the military, but that isn't half of it.Kagan has been championing socialism since her senior thesis. So roll up your sleeves, folks: It's on. Time to battle. We have to find out whatis in this woman's mind, because she's not written much of it down.
