When Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) laid out his opposition to Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination, someone in the chamber appeared to be moving around in his chair, gasping and rolling his eyes.
After his speech, a very irritated McConnell removed his microphone, approached the dais and confronted the former comedian, who was presiding over the Senate.
“This isn’t ‘Saturday Night Live,’ Al,” McConnell sternly told the Minnesota Democrat, according to people who overheard the exchange.
