    Don’t bother pointing out that many Supreme Court Justices had little, or no judical experience, such as Sanda Day O’Conner who was appointed by Reagen, because the GOP doesn’t care – this is just an attack point, no more no less, because attack is what the GOP does because they want to get people angry because angry people do stupid things like vote for the GOP.

    She’s no Harriet Myers.

    Kagan clerked for Thurgood Marshall - I’d give her points for that. Her background is pretty impressive too!

    No experience means she’s not part of the problem.

    “No experience”? About what does Lisa Benson refer? Elana Kagan has 25 years of legal experience. If Benson has substantial criticism of Kagan, then she should be more specific.

    As for President Obama’s experience, he has more than did Abraham Lincoln. Would Benson have voted against Lincoln, too?

    It’s change we can believe in… hiring someone with SMARTS, not some pal or crony!

    Lisa is referring to the fact that Kagan has never been a judge. She also has no paper trail apart from a 1995 paper stating that Supreme Court justices should have practical judge experience.

    “She’s no Harriet Myers.”

    It’s quite ironic that Benson would slam her for being so enamored of Obama, don’t you think?

    Technically, this strip is not ripping on Kagan for a lack of experience. It is definitely ripping on Obama for a lack of experience.

    And, did you know, Obama is now revealed to have a Connecticut Social Security number issued in the late 1970’s. He worked in Hawaii in 1975 and has no known connection to CT whatsoever. You defenders of Obama have no idea what he’s even about, it’s amazing. He’s as transparent as the water around BP’s well in the Gulf.

    ^^ Is the social security number stuff what he’s “about” or are you bringing up birther talk again? My social security number has no connection to what I’m “about.”

    Well, I think we have seen first hand what a lack of presidential experience means for the country. As we plunge deeper toward socialism, I doubt any of our commentary will preclude Kagan’s inevitable confirmation. She’s been hand picked for the job.

    ‘Nuff said.
