After publication of the softball photo, friends of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan feel obliged to run to the media to say she is not gay and that she dated guys and talked about how cute some of them were....This is like so ridiculous.
This happens all the time to folks seeking public office who are not married.....It is hinted they are gay and forced to emphatically deny it as if it were true it would be something horrible. It's going on in races in our area as I write this.
Ms. Kagan is old enough that we need not be concerned with her social life...but some people are....
I'd be glad to take her out to Pete's for chow and over to the Wicked Wench for digestives (after dinner drinks) if it helps her over this bump in the road.
