President Barack Obama nominated Kagan to fill the vacancy from retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.  EPA/TONI L. SANDYS Washington – It was a very serious subject — law of war issues — but Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina turned it into a lighter moment during questioning of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

    During today’s Senate confirmation hearing, Graham asked Kagan where she was when the an attempted terrorist bombing of an airliner took place near Detroit on Dec. 25, 2009.

    “I’m assuming the question you mean is whether a person was apprehended in the United States is ..,” Kagan began.

    “No I just asked you where you were at on Christmas,” Graham interjected.

    Kagan chuckled and said,  “You know, like all Jews, I was probably at a Chinese restaurant.”

    “Great answer,” Graham said over the laughter in the hearing room.
