We just pointed out in response to Ed Whelan's comments about Elena Kagan that military veterans at Harvard Law School strongly criticized the notion that Kagan was anti-military. But we need to highlight one other line in Whelan's post . Whelan writes of Kagan's decision to allow the military full recruiting access despite her opposition to “Don't Ask Don't Tell” : “But, as George Bernard Shaw would have said to Kagan for selling out her supposedly deeply held principles, 'We've already established what you are, ma'am. Now we're just haggling over the price.' ”
Update: Immediately after the portion I quoted, Whelan states "(My point isn't that Kagan deserves the Bernard Shaw slam--she doesn't--but rather that she evidently doesn't believe her own rhetoric.)"
