Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan asked whether she is Team Edward or Team Jacob

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: Our taxpayer dollars were hard at work yesterday when Senator Amy Klobuchar ( D – Minnesota) steered Senate Judiciary Committee questioning toward Twilight. In an unusual diversion, the Senator grilled Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan about her allegiance to Team Edward vs. Team Jacob.

“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 last night,” began the Minnesota Senator. “We did not miss it in our household last night and it culminated in three fifteen year old girls sleeping over at 3AM. So, I have this urge to ask you…about the famous case of Edward vs. Jacob or the vampire versus the werewolf.”

Though Kagan’s expression remained diplomatically netutral, her deadpanned response was not. “I wish you wouldn’t,” replied Kagan as some witnesses bit back smiles and others appeared not to have the foggiest clue as to what Senator was asking.

Klobuchar herself admitted that she had been awake until the wee hours the previous night chaperoning her daughter to see the film. Perhaps the irregular line of questioning can be chalked up to a simple lack of sleep.
