Ruth Bader Ginsburg: I Wasn’t 100% Sober At The State Of The Union Address

Via Talking Points Memo:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s rabid Internet following is sure to go nuts over the admission that she dozed off at the President’s State of the Union address after drinking a fine wine. Ginsburg was asked about her SOTU catnap Thursday at George Washington University, where she and her colleague Justice Antonin Scalia were interviewed by NPR. “The audience for the most part is awake because they’re bobbing up and down all the time. And we sit there, stone faced, the sober judges,” Ginsburg said. “But we’re not, at least I was not, 100 percent sober.” She explained that the justices have dinner together before the annual speech, which she said Scalia hadn’t attended in several years, and that Justice Anthony Kennedy brought along a bottle of California wine that was just too good to resist.
