Elena Kagan Confirmation Hearings Finally Talk About Serious Business


During Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings this morning, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), decided to open her remarks with a question about The Most Pressing Issue Of Our Time (This Week): Team Edward or Team Jacob? One wonders if Klobuchar lost a particularly grueling game of Truth Or Dare that ensued during the Eclipse-premiere-occasioned sleepover she talked about hosting at at her house last night, and thus felt forced to ask that question for the benefit of the C-Span-watching hordes (and her daughters). Kagan demurred, instead uttering a sorta-strident “I wish you wouldn’t” that sounded like her pledge of allegiance to Team I Am So Embarrassed For You As A Fellow Woman In Politics. [Via]
