Different strokes for liberal folks

"Harriet Miers has had a distinguished career as a lawyer, but since her experience does not include serving as a judge, we have yet to know her views on many of the critical constitutional issues facing our country today."

- Then-Senator Barack Obama, correctly pointing out President George W. Bush's aborted Supreme Court nominee's judicial shortcomings back in 2005.

Dear Leader has, of course, now appointed Elena Kagan to the Court, despite her having the exact same non-credentials as Miers.

Please explain why Ms. Kagan rates being treated completely differently than Ms. Miers besides the obvious fact (which is not supposed to be taken into consideration in any event) that you approve of the former's politics, Mr. President.

Kagan has even better credentials, Douglas; she's been overturned by the Supreme Court more often than Miers!

What's different about Kagan? If I remember correctly, her policy choices have been reversed more often by the Supreme court. Nothing says "expertise in Constitutional law" like getting rebuked by the Supreme Court!
