Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: I wasn't 100% sober during State of the Union
You really can't blame her, since the nonsense in President Obama's State of the Union address may have driven quite a few people to drink and fall asleep.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has admitted that she wasn’t “100 percent sober” during the President's State of the Union earlier this month and that led her to doze off while Obama was speaking.
“The audience for the most part is awake, because they’re bobbing up and down, and we sit there, stone-faced, sober judges. But we’re not, at least I wasn’t, 100 percent sober.
“Because before we went to the State of the Union, Justice Kennedy brought in… it was an Opus something or other, very fine California wine, and I vowed this year, just sparkling water, stay away from the wine, but in the end, the dinner was so delicious, it needed wine.
“So I got a call when I came home from one of my granddaughters and she said, ‘Bubbe, you were sleeping at the State of the Union," Ginsburg told an audience at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. on Thursday night.
