Wonkette Sings Songs With Scalia At Italian Dinner Thing
Why did your Wonkette attend theNational Italian American Foundation's 35th Pasta Gala last Saturday? Honestly, all we wanted was a photograph of Yogi Berra that we could give to our grandparents. Did Yogi Berra even show up, though? Of course not, so we had to hang out with Scalia and his saggy neck fat instead. It wasn't all bad, though: We got to sing songs with him! Videographer Extraordinaire Liz Glover has put together a fun sing-along movie for you to watch. It's mostly just Antonin Scalia singing his favorite tune from The Godfather: Part II soundtrack, but there is also a wonderful clip of your Riley Waggaman running up to Scalia and saying, "It's very nice to meet you, Mr. Alito," and then shaking his hand. Someone had been drinking that night!
You can't actually hear us call Scalia "Mr. Alito," but we promise you that is what we called him. Oh well. Just listen to Scalia's beautiful baritone/whatever. (Ha ha, he clearly does not know the words to his favorite Italian song!)
Anyway, we didn't have "VIP passes" to this so-called gala, and all the famous people were roped off behind a special elitist VIP curtain during the "reception." And when we tried to sneak in the Secret Service almost murdered us. Why are Italians so classist?
As always, thank you to the amazing Liz Glover!
