WSJ and the Kagan softball photo

    Of all photos, the WSJ ran a large photo of Supreme Court nominee Kagan playing softball and critics said it was meant to imply that she's a lesbian.


    Now there's a ridiculous analysis of her batting stance


  2. The New York Times used the same photo inside. Nothing to see here.
  3. It really amuses me to know there are people who think editors get together each afternoon and say things like, "All right, boys, how can we make Kagan look like a lesbian? Do we have a picture of her playing softball?"

    And, really, she's wearing a sweater, long pants and Keds and does not have a helmet on. Does it look like she even actually playing a game or just doing something fun for a photo op?

    Finally, the same people who wouldn't like Kagan if it were found she was gay already don't like her.

    Well, I do find the dust-up amusing. When I saw the opening press conference of Kagan's announcement, many of us said, "hey, the President nominated a high school softball coach."
