Kagan won’t want to be part of this ‘elite’ SCOTUS group

A sex-crazed 62-year-old. A Harvard professor who smoked pot with his students. A close friend to the president. A white supremacist. A three-time loser.

Sounds like the ideal cast for this summer’s edition of “Big Brother,” no?

If only.

Instead, they’re Lucius Q.C. Lamar, Douglas Ginsburg, Harriet Miers, G. Harrold Carswell and Reuben H. Walworth, all past hopefuls for the U.S. Supreme Court who didn’t have luck on their side for the aforementioned reasons, respectively. They’ve made the list of “The 5 Most Disastrous Supreme Court Nominees,” as designated by The Week magazine.

So far, Elena Kagan appears to not be a candidate for the list should it get revised next year. However, despite her being a former dean at Harvard, she’s never been a judge. Ginsburg already has one up on her, as he’s a D.C. Circuit Court judge – albeit, as The Week labeled him, the “highest judge in the land.”
