Elena Kagan’s Secret Life

Elena Kagan's Secret Life

Most accounts say Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan was raised on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, within walking distance of Zabar’s.

Wrong!

The Solicitor General and SCOTUS nominee actually lived in Stuyvesant Town on New York’s East Side until her teens.

“No big deal,” you say? You must not be a New Yorker.

You expected, um, another topic? Honestly, some people …. Well if you must know, her law school chum Sarah Walzer says Ms. Kagan dated guys. We know she’s not kinky with it because she never dated classmate Elliot Spitzer.

There. Happy now? Honestly ….

 

Note: NTTAWWT, alright? Jeez.

Culinary note: Ms. Kagan did not have a nosh-deprived childhood before moving near Zabar’s. Look here.

Kagan Wants Supreme Court on TV Even if the Camera Adds 10 Lbs.

May 10, 2010

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan thinks the high court is ready for prime time — or C-SPAN, anyway. Solicitor General Kagan endorsed televising SCOTUS in an on-camera interview last July (on CSPAN, of course). Judge Judy, unavailable for comment, probably won’t sweat the competition.
