Kagan asked 'Twilight' preference: Edward or Jacob?

Early on in the third day of Elena Kagan's confirmation hearings, she ducked a particularly relevant question from Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), tied to the week's news.

"I keep wanting to ask you about the famous camp of Edward vs. Jacob or the vampire vs. the werewolf," Klobuchar said. "I wish you wouldn't," Kagan responded.

NPR's "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" this past weekend suggested that Kagan is on Team Jacob. But of course, Jews have a long and occasionally ugly history with vampires.

My teenage daughter asked me that a few months ago, and I had no idea what she was talking about.

Obviously I am not up on the important issues of the day, like Senator Klobuchar.

I'm glad she could illuminate us all on such important matters.(end sarcasm)

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.

This is the most ridiculous excuse for a NEWS article I have seen since...maybe ever. Were the WP editors asleep when you slipped this tidbit into "print" today?
