Today's awkward photo-op: Kagan admires senator's 'gorgeous' rifle - Yahoo! News "It's a beautiful office," Kagan told Hatch, as they sat before dozens of photographers clamoring for the perfect shot. "Yeah, well, there's some nice stuff here," Hatch allowed. And that's when it got weird. "You're going to get mad," Hatch said, motioning above the reporters, where a gun hung on the wall. "Man of the Year from the National Rifle Association," the senator explained. "It's a piece of art, really." Kagan, an amused look on her face, nodded. "It's beautiful," she said, staring at the gun. "It's a handmade flintlock, and it's beautiful," Hatch said. "It's gorgeous," Kagan replied, as the press was hustled out of the room. I'd go with: 1. It is a work of art. 2. A gun that is inaccurate, fires only once before you reload, is a beautiful thing. 3. Look at the gun when you say it. Not say, at Orrin's crotch. 4. I meant the metalwork on the gun. 5. We used to make these in the coven.
