Senator Ask Kagan About “Twilight” During Hearing!
www.LibertyJuice.com ^ | July 1, 2010 | Brittany Pounders

It’s getting absurd. The first time I heard it, my mouth dropped open at the sheer stupidity of Senator Klobuchar’s line of questioning. “You had an incredibly grueling day yesterday and you did incredibly well but I guess that means you missed themidnight debut of the third twilight movie last night… I keep wanting to ask you about the famous case of Edward vs Jacob or the vampire vs the werewolf?”

Sure, I know that a little bit of levity is needed every now and then. But we are facing the lifetime appointment to one of the most important seats in the entire nation and whose decisions directly and dramatically can affect the lives of each and every American and future Americans!

And where is the GOP while these stupid, stupid Democratic Senators dribble out these idiot lines of questioning? Perhaps the Constitution should be on the Senators reading list, rather than Twilight? Just a thought. Just further proof that elections have consequences.

What an embarrassment to our country.

My Senator.
You knew the dems were not going to ask any challenging questions but you’d think they would at least go through the motions.

Comparing the discourse of the enlightened men of America's founding generations to the foolishness of the elected representatives who posture and pose before TV cameras today reveals a great chasm between the intellectual abilitiy, as well as the devotion to liberty, of the two groups.!

What midgets these men appear to be!

They are proud of their ignorance!

They KNOW they can do whatever they want since they have the majority and they are rubbing in our faces.

Right. Let’s reduce the significance of the Senate’s Constitutional responsibility to confirm Supreme Court nominees down to the level of a movie series for adolescent girls. Obviously, that Senator is too dumb to go out of the house on her own, so I want to know who is advising her. I hope someone got that on video so her next opponent can make good use of it.

Doesn’t Twilight involve heterosexual vampires? What would Kagan know about that?

Just wait until congress divides itself into Team Edward and Team Jacob. Next we’ll have vampires making executives decisions - never mind, we already do.

“The hearings are a joke.”

The biggest joke is that they made Kagan wear lipstick and “makeup” (if one can call it that) for the 1st time in her adult life.

Once confirmed she can go back to wearing aftershave lotion, jeans, and her Grateful Dead T-Shirt!

You want to know what is even stranger? I was chatting with an out of state friend last night about "WHAT is all this juvenile 'Twilight' obsession?" and she told me that what is most ODD about Kloubasher's public behavior yesterday is that her step sister's body was identified as a drowning victim in Minneapolis.

I was shocked.

What a bizarre way to behave when your own step sister has died!! VERY peculiar.

Any grown man that thinks about this stuff on the job or during spare time should have his man-card revoked. To men, “Twilight” should be nothing more than a means to an end. Something for your daughter. Something for a girlfriend or wife (with definite eyes on the prize for later in the evening).

My daughter’s too young, and my wife couldn’t be less interested ... so I am glad to say I’ve never seen a minute of this nonsense.

If I were running against this Senator, I’d make a campaign commercial with that question in it ... “is this what we sent this guy to Washington for?”

I don’t know if she was murdered, all I know is that the body was retrieved from the Mississippi River, somewhere in the Twin Cities; I haven’t looked for any news articles about it, but presumably there must be some??

Wow ... I didn’t know Dr. Evil was going drag in the next Austin Powers movie. Where did you get this promotional still? I thought she looked like Al Gore in drag at first, but now I am not so sure.

Kloubasher’s sister drowned on Monday and she’s making jokes on Wednesday? Even if she didn’t get along with sister, she should have excused herself to be with family and friends for a few days. She should not even have been at the hearings unless she wanted face time and had her little joke planned to garner the simpleton vote.

Apparently, Twilight isn’t just for vapid 14 year olds because I saw an elderly woman reading it just last week. I’ve never read the books nor have I dished out hard earned dollars to see the movies.

I just posted links to 2 articles, in the latter one, they state that she intends to spend some time with her father & stepmother on Friday.

Strange she was missing for a week after a swimming trip and the officials had to resort to a public notice for help in identifying her even with tattoos. Note to self - don’t end up dead in Minnesota.

An interesting link from that page to info on an ongoing investigation on a farm near where Jacob Wetterling was abducted 21 years ago. That event has always tugged at my heart.

Makes you wonder why noone ever reported her missing, doesn’t it?

I think the question was specifically engineered to give the media a cute, giggly soundbite they could play in their coverage of Kagan’s testimony at the hearings. That way if anything controversial came up that day, they could just report that in droll narration, but people would hear Kagan herself being kind of hip about a popular culture item. (But also too “serious” to really get into it.)

The exchange makes NO sense whatsoever unless it was to provide something harmless for the media to report. And boy, did they report it! I heard it on every single top- and half-hour newsbreak on the radio that day.

Wonder why this particular Senator was selected to deliver the question? Because it sure didn’t make her look good.
