Kagan Matches Wits With Would-Be "Peers"
Almost hard to listen to, as the nominee comes off so notably outmatched - though, as Allah notes, as Solicitor General, "She’s duty bound to defend whatever crappy law they toss in front of her with whatever crappy argument she can come up with. And this one’s plenty crappy..."
Weakness of case aside, Hot Air also recounts Kagan's unforced tactical error, which may have been enough to sink the Citizens United case (thus surrendering victory to free speech fans). If Obama's counting on his nominee to "sway" her fellow justices on tough cases, and this clip is indicative of her persuasive capacity, Kagan may be a delightful (if unwitting) boon to the court's conservative bloc.
