Isn’t it completely shocking unsurprising to learn that Elena Kagan, Obama’s newest choice for the United States Supreme Court, has a bunch of old friends in liberal media?

Via Politico: Kagan’s Journo Friends

For Elena Kagan, this much is true: She has friends in journo circles. Seems like everybody has a “Kagan Connection.”

Most assessments of Kagan begin like this:

“I first met Kagan in the mid-’90s when we were both former law clerks for Judge Abner Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit,” wrote The New Republic’s Jeffrey Rosen.

“Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and I shared a dinner table once,” wrote Washington Post writer Jonathan Capehart.

“I had her for two classes” at Harvard Law School, said CBS’ Jan Crawford Greenberg. “But she was very challenging, while at the same time very engaging and lively.”

Read it all. It gets worse.

Kagan’s confirmation in the SCOTUS could finally marry the Fourth Estate to the Judicial Branch. Which would be ironic, considering the Fourth Estate has been sleeping with the Executive Branch for the last two years.

Could Ms. Kagan’s media connections come up in the future? Who knows? After all, everyone trusts the media, right?

Better just make a mental note for the future.
