Quote For The Day III

"Her work is her life is her work," - Charles Fried, a Harvard Law professor, on Elena Kagan, a woman with no romantic life since college, no pets, no retreat and apparently a private life devoted solely to the elites.

The profile today is almost a parody of Washington careerist insularity - with everyone in power in cahoots with, or related to, everyone else, and everyone just loving one another to death. The idea that Kagan represents real experience of the real world is, quite simply, ludicrous. She is the polar opposite of Clarence Thomas - as bright as he is dim, as protected by liberal elites as he is brutally exposed by them.
