Senate out-dumbs local columnist, asks Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan aboutTwilight
And I thought the fake questions I posed for Elena Kagan on Monday were ridiculous.
It looks like when it comes to getting face time on C-SPAN, senators will ask pretty much whatever comes to their mind of a judicial nominee.
After questions from Herbert Kohl on what her "passions" were, calling a hypothetical mandatory-vegetable-eating law "dumb" to Tom Coburn and divulging her Christmas plans to Lindsey Graham ("Like all Jews, I was probably at a Chinese restaurant"), Kagan earned her stripes dodging the dumbest question of all from Democrat Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.
Klobuchar: "You had an incredibly grueling day yesterday and did incredibly well, but I guess it means you missed the midnight debut of the third Twilight movie. We did not in our household and it culminated in three 15-year-old-girls sleeping over at 3 a.m.
Kagan: I didn't see that.
Klobuchar: I had a feeling. I keep wanting to ask you about the famous case of Edward vs. Jacob, or the vampire vs. the werewolf ...
Kagan: I wish you wouldn't.
Klobuchar: I will refrain. But I know you can't comment on future cases, so I'll leave that alone.
If Kagan can be as restrained on the Court as she was in her rejection of that question, I don't think the conservatives have anything to worry about.
