Out MSNBC anchor just couldn't wrap her Rhodes Scholar, doctorate-brain around Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's apparent misunderstanding of basic women's biology, as demonstrated yesterday at the SCOTUS hearing in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the federal case challenging California's Proposition 8. 

Calling the interaction an "awkward moment for the country," Maddow described the exchange as a "not-understanding-the-biology moment wherein the Justices ended up discussing the procreative capacity of dead Senator Strom Thurmond."

The judicial misunderstanding continued to the point where Maddow became so incensed that she chucked her pen across the room. 

Watch Maddow try to keep her cool below.
