Ed Whelan’s first real salvo is up, and if this is all they have, I now understand why the political wing of the WH supports Kagan. At any rate, Whelan’s first attack contained this gem:
Kagan’s exclusion of military recruiters from the Harvard law school campus promises to draw considerable attention precisely because—as Peter Beinart, the liberal former editor of the New Republic, has written—it amounted to “a statement of national estrangement,” of Kagan’s “alienating [her]self from the country.”
Even the liberal new Republic! It’s almost like that phrase is a running joke!
