• Was Ruth Bader Ginsburg Drunk During The State Of The Union?

    The picture of the liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg slouched over, appearing to be passed out, during Obama’s State of the Union speech has been viewed millions of times around the world.

    Everybody felt sorry for Ginsburg, who is 81-years-old, immediately after seeing the photo of her passed out.

    But then again, who wouldn’t be put to sleep after listening to Obama talking for 90 minutes?

    Anyway, here she is in her slumber:


    Her explanation?

    “At least I wasn’t 100 percent sober because before we went to the State of the Union we had dinner,” Ginsburg said. “The audience–for the most part–is awake because they’re bobbing up and down all the time and we sit there stone-faced, sober judges.”

    “Stone-faced, sober judges”? I guess there was a pun intended.

    And like a good liberal, Ginsburg blamed her behavior on someone else.

    “Justice Kennedy brought in … it was an Opus something or other, very fine California wine that Justice Kennedy brought and I vowed this year just sparkling water, stay away from the wine,” Ginsburg said. “But in the end, the dinner was so delicious, it needed wine to accompany it.”

    She’s 81-years-old and still can’t take responsibility for her own actions? Terrible.

    Justice Antonin Scalia joked about Ginsburg falling asleep: “Well, that’s the first intelligent thing you’ve done.”
