Elena Kagan - Death Sentence for Bad 'Twilight' Joke

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

How the hell do these idiots keep making their way into the upper echelon of our federal government?? Klobuchar has just shown that she is less qualified to sit in the Senate than even Al Franken, which is just flat out scary.
