RBG Not ‘100% Sober’ During State of the Union

RBG Not ‘100% Sober’ During State of the Union February 16, 2015

There are so many reasons to adore Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Here’s another. In an interview with CNN (along with Justice Scalia), she admitted that she was somewhat tipsy during the State of the Union speech this year, and in previous years as well.

Finally they got to the State of the Union. Earlier in the evening, Scalia had expressed his disdain for the event that he stopped attending years ago. And Ginsburg admitted, that once again, she fell asleep, “as I often do.”

“The audience for the most part is awake because they are bobbing up and down and we sit there, stone faced,” she said. “But we’re not, at least I was not 100% sober,” she said to big applause. She blamed a fine wine Justice Kennedy had brought to dinner before hand.

“I vowed this year — just sparkling water—stay away from the wine — but the dinner was so delicious it needed wine.”

My hatred for the State of the Union speech is well known. I would need to be drunk, at the very least, to attend.
