On the one hand: she’s probably lying.
Justice Ginsburg: I didn't pass out at the SOTU speech because I'm old, I was just drunk http://t.co/eFSZUHts8y

On the other hand, it’s kind of a badass lie. And on the gripping hand, I wouldn’t go to an Obama SotU sober, either. I had to watch most of the last SotU sober (wife got delayed getting home), and it was remarkably unpleasant. I don’t know how people who don’t drink during these things can stand it.
PS: There seems to be a general consensus on Twitter that “using alcohol to get through the SotU” is a viable life hack.
