Elena Kagan at her Supreme Court Hearing

We all finally agree on Elena Kagan. Everyone loves/hates/completely doesn’t care about this woman. The biggest black mark on her record is that she doesn’t have much of an outspoken record. But since that doesn’t hold up as a reason to block her from SCOTUS, in the several months she’s been in the public eye, Republicans have zoned in on another target: Thurgood Marshall.

Kagan clerked for the SCOTUS Justice twenty years ago, he was a mentor to her. So it’s only natural that during her confirmation hearing, the GOP attacks Thurgood Marshall, noted civil rights activist.
