Live, from the Judiciary Committee...

Fresh from proclaiming  Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor "the most experienced nominee to the Supreme Court in 100 years," Senator Al Franken (D-MN), a member of the Judiciary Committee, once again displayed his vast understanding of the issues involved for selecting a Supreme Court justice by referring to . . . Perry Mason!
"While you were watching 'Perry Mason' in the South Bronx with your mom and your brother, I was watching 'Perry Mason' in suburban Minneapolis with my folks and my brother, and here we are today. I am asking you questions because you have been nominated to be a justice of the United States Supreme Court. I think that's pretty cool."
