Elena Kagan - Death Sentence for Bad 'Twilight' Joke

6/30/2010 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apparently, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan isn't a fan of "Twilight" ... 'cause at today's Senate confirmation hearing, the gun critic shot down a terribly delivered "joke" question about "Twilight" like she was Annie frickin' Oakley.

The super uncomfortable exchange all went down when Sen. Amy Klobuchar had the floor ... and informed Kagan that she had just watched the "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" movie ... and wanted to know if Kagan was Team Jacob or Team Edward.

She chuckled ... but it didn't seem like Kagan was amused.

That fat ox acted defensively because she has no clue who Jacob, Edward or Twilight is.

a better poll question would be whether or not klobuchar is senate material. confirmation hearings are not the time for cutesy questions.

The gulf is dieing and this is what the taxpayer has to see on T.V. What a waste of time/what a waste of money. The roads are full of holes, the bridges are rusting away and the trillions going to a war that will never end. When are we going to wake up?????

Well she's a dyke, so I figured she would like that Twilight crap.

This clearly shows that she's mature enough to make decisions based on the law rather than a childish obsession with a fictional movie.

My two cents ;)    

It's a huge bonus that someone who will be in a very serious position to help our country seems unmoved by the Twilight crap :) Good sign
