Is Kagan Congress’ LEAST favorite SC appointee in history? Almost.

Elena KaganOn Saturday, August 7th, 2010, in the midst of the Dog Days of Summer, Elena Kagan will be sworn in as the next justice of the SCOTUS, and one of three woman concurrently serving on what has historically been a court dominated by men. A momentous occasion to say the least, and one that Barack Obama is no doubt proud of.

But is there another historic (and a bit embarrassing) aspect to this particular appointment that a lot of people know about? Why, yes. Yes there is.

Only ONE Supreme Court appointee before her has been less popular with the Congress voting on their appointment.

Maybe not such a thrilling appointment for the dems after all, is it Chris Matthews?
