Like flies to poop

Just to cheer myself up, I thought I'd check in on TexasFred and see what he has to say about the nomination of Elena Kagan and it should surprise no one that he is indeed right on script:
I can’t prove that Kagan is a lesbian, but the rumors have been out there for a very long time. Even Wikipedia had devoted a paragraph to that supposition, but it has apparently been scrubbed from their pages now.

Rumors continue, and when coupled with Kagan’s outward appearance, well, who knows?
'Course Fred's not satisfied with being just your average loopy wingnut and has to go the extra mile:
Sure, Kagan has great educational credibility, but has she ever been a practicing attorney? Has she ever tried a case before a Judge? Any Judge? Does she have ANY concept of what it’s like to stand before the bench? I would think that should be a requirement before you’re allowed to sit ON the bench!
Um, yeah. Seems if we look at that Wikipedia entry he quoted above, there's this (emphasis mine):
On January 5, 2009, President-elect Barack Obama announced he would nominate Kagan to be Solicitor General.[19][20] Before this appointment she had limited courtroom experience. She had never argued a case at trial,[21] and had not argued before the Supreme Court of the United States. This is not uncommon, however, as at least two previous Solicitors General, Robert Bork and Kenneth Starr, had no previous appellate experience at the Supreme Court, though Starr served as a Circuit Court Judge prior to acting as Solicitor General.[22]

Kagan was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on March 19, 2009, by a vote of 61 to 31[23], becoming the first woman to hold the position. She made her first appearance in oral argument before the Supreme Court on September 9, 2009, in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.[24]
Does that count?

Remember, Fred, like Glenn Beck, is just asking questions.

Absolutely! Inquisitive fellow is our Fred.

Yessir, he's JUST LIKE Glenn Beck, albeit with less intellect or charisma.
