In starting his line of questions, Sen. Al Franken has taken the comedian's approach right out of the gate. Shortly after discussing his and Soto's mutual love of Perry Mason, he made the grandiose statement: "You've been nominated to the Supreme Court. That's pretty cool."
Other statements I'm waiting for Franken to make:
"You're hispanic. That's pretty....ethnic." "You're a woman. That's pretty....womanly." "You're both female and hispanic. That's pretty....wise."
