Like duh. So, of course, the No. 1 daughter of Tiger Mom (that’s Yale Law prof Amy Chua, if you need reminding) is heading to the U.S. Supreme Court to clerk for Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

That was a no-brainer. First of all, you’ll remember that even before “I-Like-Beer” Kavanaugh became a household name, Chua’s daughter Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld was already slated to clerk for him on the Court of Appeals. Plus, her mom adored the guy, extolling his record of hiring female clerks (she helped place 10 or so female Yale Law graduates as his clerks) in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal after his nomination to the Supreme Court (though before the sexual allegations against him by Christine Blasey Ford came out).
