The Corner

Speaking of Interesting Choices sent me a press release email earlier today on their ongoing series on a fantasy cabinet. I shall refrain from scoring easy points on the quality of the press release. However, I thought Monroe Anderson’s pick for attorney general was dismaying:

Attorney General—Lani Guinier

For the past seven years, justice has been denied to virtually any American whose net worth was not seven digits or greater. Labeled by the right as “anti-Constitution” and “the quota queen” when Bill Clinton nominated her for assistant attorney general in 1993, the president caved, kicking his former Yale Law School classmate under the bus. Imminently qualified,[*] Guiner will make sure that the poor and the wage earner gets their just due.

* I assume that means she’ll be qualified any minute now.
