ABC's Z. Byron Wolf reports: Maybe he was jealous that funny woman and Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan stole the show with her jokes and quick wit Tuesday. Maybe he has an appreciation for the human form. Or maybe he was just bored.
But an AP photographer caught Minnesota Democrat, Al Franken, better known for his own career as a comedian, drawing a pretty good likeness of Sen. Jeff Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Sessions, his glasses hanging low on his nose, went after Kagan at Tuesday’s hearing, demanding to know if Kagan would classify herself as progressive. Despite her work for a line of Democratic politicians, from President Clinton and then-Senator Joe Biden to President Obama, Kagan punted.
With all the practice on Sessions, one wonders if he could draw the Alabama Republican from memory too.
