Cameras, Cameras, Everywhere

For today's Alito Confirmation Hearings update, there isn't much substance to report that didn't get covered yesterday. Some backstage drama was reported, but watching C-SPAN Just Barely Inside the Beltway we also noticed a lesson for female members of the army of staffers seated behind the senators - if you want to avoid some potential embarrassment, don't wear short skirts to televised hearings:



It took about five minutes of C-SPAN coverage before she fled and was eventually replaced by a guy. We're trying to decide whether someone whispered in her ear or if she got a message on her Blackberry.

Maybe if I was female I'd consider that more controversial. It's just a pair of legs. The skirt wasn't that short.

It would be embarrassing, trust a girl on this one. And you know that somewhere out there people like Josh are making inappropriate comments about the legs on TV.

April said...

Oh, and now we know that Nick also has a "Little Barney" in his head.

Nick said...

I referred to it as "potential" embarassment for essentially the same reason that April said she's lucky her legs are crossed.

JJH said...

The fact that her legs are crossed is another reason why I don't consider this to be a big deal.

And trust me, Josh doesn't need to be reminded of the fact that women have legs in order to make inappropriate comments. ;)

Good thing she's not a rabid feminist and actually shaves!

JJH said...

Yes, very thankful for that Paul. In fact, I may as well admit that about 33% of the reason I didn't think this was terribly controversial is because, well, those are some nice legs. ;)
