Kagan's Friends: She's Not Gay, NTTAWWT

Well known Honest Abe Eliot Spitzer says Kagan's not gay. So do some other people we've never heard of:

Walzer, half amused and half appalled to be discussing her friendís sexual orientation, agreed to be interviewed after Kaganís supporters decided they should tactfully put an end to the rumor, which White House officials had already tried to squelch in background interviews with reporters. She said she decided to talk to POLITICO because the discussion of Kaganís personal life has become a ďdistraction.Ē

I don't know what to believe. Certainly Kagan's friends have a suspect motive in pushing whatever story is most advantageous for getting her through the confirmation circus. I'm assuming that claiming she's straight would work best, but really, anything solid is probably better than the quiet privacy Kagan and the White House adopted initially.

They're right that the whole "is she or isn't she" question overwhelmed the initial discussion in the media and the blogosphere. Today's absurdities include oversensitive gay groups claiming that the Wall Street Journal was gay-baiting by running the decades-old photo of Kagan playing softball. It saw Andrew Sullivan waging a campaign to out Kagan (safe link) and actually suggesting that she shouldn't be confirmed unless she is forced out of the closet.

Will this Politico piece put the "distraction" to rest? Not a chance.
