The Supreme Court Discusses Twilight… seriously
The Twilight Saga has gotten so big that even our government officials are talking about it – it is a sad time to be an American. Apparently, the folks in the US of A care so much about Twilight that they feel it necessary to know oneâs opinion on it before she takes over the highest court in the US.
So hereâs what happened, during her Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Solicitor General Elena Kagan was jokingly asked by Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat of Minnesota, for her thoughts on the biggest issue in American history – Jacob vs. Edward.
Making note of the âincredibly grueling dayâ Elena Kagan had on Tuesday, Klobuchar remarked, âI guess it means you missed the midnight debut of the third Twilight movie last night.â After some laughter, she added: âWe did not miss it in our household, and it culminated in three 15-year-old girls sleeping over at 3 a.m.â
Ms. Kagan admitted that she was not able to see Eclipse, but Ms. Klobuchar nonetheless continued, âI keep wanting to ask you about the famous case of Edward versus Jacob or the vampire versus the werewolf.â
âI wish you wouldnât,â Ms. Kagan said.
âI know you canât comment on future cases,â Klobuchar said. âSo Iâll leave that alone.â
Really!? Ok, thereâs a part of me, deep DEEP inside that is giggling about this – âhehe government officials are chatting about Twilight hehe.â But thereâs a much bigger part thatâs like, âWhat-the-fuck!âÂ Apparently Minnesotaâs senator has the mindset of a 10-year-old girlâ¦ poor Minnesota.
What do you guys think? Do you think itâs just some harmless girl talk? Or does it piss you off that your government is spending itâs time chatting about Edward and Jacob? Personally, I think itâs ridiculous, but itâs not really a huge deal. Itâs not like they were screaming âOMG I LUUUURVE EDWARD! HEâS SOOOOOOOOO HAWT!â No harm done – however, Iâm not a huge Twilight fan, so Senator Amy Klobuchar looses some respect points for this.
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
