There is a reason Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is known as the Notorious R.B.G. in certain Internet circles.

Ginsburg admitted Thursday night that she was not “100 percent sober” during President Obama’s State of the Union. No, she wasn’t playing the unofficial SotU drinking game, she just over-indulged during the Supreme Court’s pregame dinner party.

“The audience for the most part is awake because they are bobbing up and down and we sit there, stone faced,” Ginsburg said during a panel at George Washington University. “But we’re not, at least I was not, 100 percent sober.”

“I vowed this year – just sparkling water, stay away from the wine – but in the end, the dinner was so delicious it needed wine.”

We’ve all been there, RBG.

Bonus – look at her mean mugging on the way into the State of the Union:
