If clerkships for former justices is the new standard, we've reached a new low!
Listening to the reaction on Talk Radio this afternoon to Obama's selection of Harvard crony Elena Kagin for nomination to the Supreme Court, a liberal caller to Sean Hannity's show struck a chord. He read off the list of George Soros/David Axelrod approved talking points and stressed that Kagin, who was never a judge and has never written an opinion, nor appeared as a lawyer before the Supreme Court was somehow qualified to sit on the High Court on the basis of her clerkship to the late Justice Thurgood Marshall.
I was an intern in the White House of President Ronald Reagan. Am I qualified to be President?
Alright, let's put that aside and consider this: among her many qualifications Laura Ingraham, clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas, another black Justice. Should she also be considered for a future nomination to the High Court by GOP Presidents? What about conservative commentator Ann Coulter who clerked for Judge Pasco Bowman II of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and was an attorney in the Department of Justice Honors Program for outstanding law school graduates?
A challenge to our liberal readers: drop the Soros/Axelrod approved talking points and tell us why Kagin should be given a pass that would NEVER apply to any conservative woman; let alone a man!
Choose your words carefully, as they may come back to bite you!
