Kagan quietly confirmed to SCOTUS

There was so little media attention, I almost forgot it was happening but Elena Kagan was confirmed this afternoon on a 63 to 37 vote without the usual Senate theatrics. Outside of the initial "OMG, she's probably a lesbian" when she was first nominated, this was the quietest confirmation I recall in my lifetime.

Guess the wingers and theocrats are too worked up over the overturning of PropHate in California yesterday to spare much outrage for Kagan. And of course, immigrant bashing and overturning the 14th Amendment been keeping them busy too. I suppose the GOPers figured that would be a much better wedge issue for November.
