Our panelists predict what shocking revelation will come out of Elena Kagan's confirmation hearings.

PETER SAGAL, Host:

Now, panel, what will shock us from Elena Kagan's confirmation hearing? Roy Blount Jr.

M: She's perfectly qualified in every respect, except - it's really kind of sad - she gets a terrible rash and breaks out in uncontrollable sneezing whenever she puts on a black robe.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson.

M: Oh, Elena Kagan, she has had more husbands than Elizabeth Taylor, and she's secretly engaged to Larry King.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Paula Poundstone.

M: There are photographs, and they can't be certain that this is what was happening. But apparently, in preschool, she played Duck, Duck, Goose.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL, Host:

Well, if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Paula Poundstone, Roy Blount Jr., Amy Dickinson.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
