Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT)
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
Tapper: what about Elena Kagan?
Leahy: I want a rapid confirmation but I need
Jeff Sessions’ permission
Tapper: Kagan said the Senate is vapid and hollow
Leahy: we all know that
Tapper: why are confirmation hearings so ridiculous?
Leahy: people with opinions must recuse themselves from all other cases
Leahy: because thinking about anything means
you are unfairly biased
Tapper: I see
Leahy: she needs to appear to be an unthinking dolt to impress the Senate
Sessions: She needs to be like john Roberts and openly lie to the Senate about her intentions
Tapper: Do you think she hates the military?
Sessions: this is major issue - if the military can’t use the office of career services how can Harvard Law Students possibly find their way to a recruiting office??
Leahy: I realize the GOP are insane but give
me a break
Sessions: No no no - you know how stupid those ivy leaguers are - we might have won the Iraq war if we had more Harvard Law Students on the front lines
Tapper: She wrote a friend of the court brief on a case that went the other way - doesn’t that prove
she can’t be on the Supreme Court
Leahy: is being a dumbass disqualifying from hosting a Sunday Talk show?
Leahy: well there you go
Tapper: does she love female persons or male persons?
Sessions: I don’t care - I love corporate persons
Tapper: Should we repeal those pesky
Leahy: yes but we have to do so within
Tapper: well that’s fucking annoying
Sessions: yee haw
Tapper: Should we protect oil companies from paying for their mistakes?
Sessions: let’s not be too hard on BP - I mean they are very nice people who have suffered greatly during this terrible time of the environmental
disaster they caused
Leahy: Jesus Christ Republicans filibustered an attempt to hold BP accountable
Sessions: did we?
Leahy: yes you did fucker
