During day two of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's confirmation hearings in late June, an AP photographer snapped a photo of the Minnesota Democrat sketching the likeness of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions. Fox News implied the senator wasn't taking things seriously enough, what with his doodling and apparent napping during the hearings.
The Full Ginsburg responds:
Marc Georges: Not sure what this says about us as a nation that his doodle is the only thing people have been talking about with the Kagan hearings. I know more about this doodle than about Franken's entire Senate record.
Zara Findlay-Shirras: At least he wasn't playing MASH. There was no "Scott Brown in a mansion in Florida with 7 kids."
Eric Cunningham: This is my favorite clip of all of these. Why? Because this is Brian Williams, America's Newscaster, talking about a doodle a comedian made - and then he ends the segment by casually mentioning that it was during a Senate confirmation hearing for the lifetime appointment of a justice of the Supreme Court. USA! USA! USA!
