Noah, she’s not remotely qualified to be a Supreme Court justice. She played fast and loose with the partial-birth-abortion memo, and she hasn’t come clean on barring military recruiters from Harvard. I do, however, give her points for this:
Sen. Graham: Where were you on Christmas?
Elena Kagan: Like most Jews, I was probably in a Chinese restaurant.
That in a nutshell is how Kagan got to where she is — she’s a nice, funny lady with great people skills. But that isn’t — well, it shouldn’t be — the standard for a lifetime appointment.
