Scalia, Breyer, and Kagan: Just Friends


Say what you will about the conservative jurisprudence of Justice Antonin Scalia, but this is pretty funny:

Justice Antonin Scalia says Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has at least two friends on the high court: Scalia and Justice Stephen Breyer.

Scalia offered the comment while before a House Judiciary subcommittee on Thursday.

Scalia and Breyer were there to talk about the Administrative Conference of the United States. Scalia was chairman and Breyer served as a Senate liaison for the regulation-studying body.

House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers said he had a question but that staff had warned him it was out of bounds.

Scalia responded, "Mr. Chairman, we're both friends of Elena Kagan, and I don't think we're willing to go beyond that." People at the hearing laughed.
