Who Knew the Supreme Court Could Be Funny?

Gwen's Take

Perhaps Antonin Scalia has met his match.

It is all well and good that the high court’s most conservative justice probably disagrees with Elena Kagan on nearly everything involving Constitutional interpretation.

But Scalia and Kagan may find far more common ground when it comes to cracking each other up.

If you were watching Kagan’s Senate confirmation hearings – and you can be forgiven if you didn’t have 10 or 20 hours to spare – you may have noticed a remarkable amount of lightheartedness in the room.
