Franken, Sotomayor and Perry Mason

From TheHill
... before wrapping up his question time, Franken returned to "Perry Mason," posing to Sotomayor the only question that has stumped her so far during the Judiciary Committee hearings.

Franken asked Sotomayor the name of the one case where Mason’s client was actually guilty.

But Sotomayor, for all her knowledge of real-life cases, couldn’t come up with the answer, prompting mock surprise and disappointment from the senator.

“Didn’t the White House prepare you?” ...

Sotomayor assured the panel that “I watched it all of the time” but could not remember.

I trust that 50.00000000001% of Minnesotans are proud of their choice for the hallowed halls of the Senate. Oh wait that says he actually won the vote of the people. Let me change that to 49.9999999% and a few operatives that discovered absentee ballots in the trunk of their cars and convinced the Minnesota Supreme Court that they really were 100% for Franken. Honestly judge they were. Trust me.
