Al Franken doodles Jeff Sessions during Kagan hearings, actually pretty good

Democratic Senator Al Franken showed that he's just like everyone else in a meeting they find boring, using a United States Senate notepad to sketch Republican Senator Jeff Sessions during Elena Kagan's Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

He's actually a decent artist. If he's ever looking for work, looks like he's got a variety of fallback options. (Caricaturist? Comic book artist? Police composite artist? Oh, yeah, and there's that comedy thing.)

It's a good thing I can't draw that well, or I'd be even more distractible than I already am. (This is also why I sometimes leave my iPhone at my desk to make sure I focus during meetings.)
