Leftist Coward Watch - Day 11

I know it's getting predictable, but it's always fun to point out how the Leftist leech who relies on me for the material for his "blog" still hasn't gotten the courage to allow comments. If his ideas are so superior, shouldn't he welcome the chance to engage people of a different ideological bent? Surely he wouldn't cower behind a lame excuse like "I don't want your friends flaming my blog."

Oh, wait. He does.

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's legal history has been under the microscope this week, and what we've found so far has been, in a word, unimpressive. But to hear the Left talk, she's brilliant and an exceptional choice because of some of the people who have come before her with equivalent experience. We're supposed to overlook the lack of experience and just focus on the diversity angle, as Kagan would be the third woman on the USSC if confirmed.

The problem with this approach is that diversity without consideration of qualifications undercuts the point of having diversity in the first place. Let's not forget, the Left had a chance to nominate a woman to the USSC under George W. Bush, Harriet Miers. Where were they?

Making a big issue of Miers' lack of experience.

Couldn't have anything to do with who nominated her, could it? Naaaaaaaaaaaaah. That would make the Left look petty and hypocritical. Of course, they are...
