    Miss Oklahoma for Supreme Court?

    William F. Buckley famously quipped that he “would rather be governed by the first 2,000 names in the Boston telephone directory than by the 2,000 members of the Harvard faculty.” Well, what if we were to be governed by – er, um, I mean – what if we were to have on the Supreme Court Miss Oklahoma 2010 instead of the President’s choice, Elena Kagan? | Read More »
