I’m also reminded of this classic bit from Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown. (No doubt the first thing Tarantino asked when hearing about her nomination was, “But what about her feet?"):

No defense experience? What’re you talking about? She kills bears fercryinoutloud!

UPDATE: Switched the image to show a comparison.
