Dahlia Lithwick Talks Kagan With Stephen Colbert

On last night’s Colbert Report , Slate ‘s (and the XX Factor’s) own Dahlia Lithwick discussed Elena Kagan with Stephen. “She has this magical ability to make you love her,” Dahlia said, to which Stephen replied, “Is she a leprechaun?” The takeaway from Dahlia’s segment, embedded below, was that the Kagan hearings will be mostly about her lack of judicial experience-not her sexuality or her potential leprechaun status.
