The Judge is Taking All Questions

Judge Sonia Sotomayor has been through four gruelling days of interogation during her Senate Confirmation hearing. While many questions have addressed issues of jurisprudence, her understanding of precedence and potential baises she may bring tot he Supreme Court, some have been irrelevant, obscure or downright silly.

Dogs & Jeans' Crack Research Squad brings you a sample of some of the latter group of inquiry:

  • "If you could be any kind of tree, which tree would you be?"
  • "Can you understand what the hell is going on on 'Lost'?"
  • "Which 5 people from any time in history would you have at a dinner party?"
  • "Boxers or briefs?"
  • "Who would win in a fight between Donald Duck and Daffy Duck?"
  • "Do you do any impressions?"
  • "In your opinion, does Britney Spears actually want to be left alone?"
  • "If you could commit one crime and get away with, what would you do?"
  • "Do I look fat in these pants?"
  • "Did you find it unnecessary for the end of the last Indiana Jones movie to include aliens?"
  • "Could you recommend a good tax lawyer for me?"
  • "Will Tiger Woods win another major tournament?"
  • "How is a woman like you still single, and would you have coffee with me?

My only comment is that at the bottom of every law school class is a group of future judges. Just sayin'

Fancy Schmancy said...

Nice list! I'm sure those questions are better than the ones they've been asking her!

All very good questions and ones I would like answered because what the hell is going on on Lost?

Swirl Girl said...

I think you should be part of the questioning Senator Thorn.

The Confirmation MeMe

Jaina said...

I definitely second Swirl Girl. You should have been contacted for input on the questioning.

Oh, I also agree with Cocotte...and am laughing.

Brilliant inquiries. I am curious to know her responses, especially if she wears boxers or briefs.

Oh, and do you know what is going on on Lost? I am so confused (but what is new).

Cocette: You never hear anyone say, "you should talk to me lawyer. He was last in his class."

Fancy: Thanks. How else will we discover the truth?

tammy: I think the show must be written using a dictionary, dice and a magic 8 ball.

Swirl Girl & Jaina: Nah, I'd be corrupted by the power.

Youngblood: Or goes Commando?
