WASHINGTON—Saying they didn't want to waste any more time dicking around, members of the U.S. Senate began Elena Kagan's Supreme Court confirmation hearing Monday by asking the solicitor general point-blank if she had the goods to join the nation's highest court.

After indicating that she was "fucking born ready," Kagan was confirmed in a unanimous 100-0 vote.
