If we could have sex with Glenn Greenwald’s words, we would. They don’t just shut down opposing arguments with a well-placed semi-colon. They don’t just ooze intelligence and wit. They are sexy. Having already gone to great lengths to explain why alleged lesbian Elena Kagan isn’t a wise Supreme Court choice for true progressive, the Salon scribe has found somebody else to endorse: Diane Wood.
The Brazil-based Greenwald (who lives there thanks to the U.S. not recognizing his same-sex relationship with a foreigner) finds in Wood (pictured, right), the hetero Seventh Circuit judge appointed by Clinton, what he cannot in Kagan. Namely, a Constitutional scholar with a track record of left-leaning (read: reasonable) positions.
And now he’s found in Kagan yet another scarlet letter: Taking such a radical position over First Amendment restrictions in arguing the U.S. v. Stevens animal cruelty case that eight of nine justices refuted her entire premise in banning animal torture porn.
