Antonin Scalia successfully changes name to Arrogant Prick Scalia. Few notice any difference.
I’m glad to see that he takes his job so seriously:
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (news – web sites), a combative conservative known for his tough talk on and off the bench, isn’t backing down in the face of criticism that he should stay out of a case involving his friend and hunting partner, Vice President Dick Cheney (news – web sites).
“It did not involve a lawsuit against Dick Cheney as a private individual,” Scalia said in response to a question from the audience of about 600 people. “This was a government issue. It’s acceptable practice to socialize with executive branch officials when there are not personal claims against them. That’s all I’m going to say for now. Quack, quack.”
Then again, were we ever supposed to take him seriously after 12/9/2000 when he wrote:
The counting of votes that are of questionable legality does in my view threaten irreparable harm to petitioner (Bush), and to the country, by casting a cloud upon what he claims to be the legitimacy of his election. Count first, and rule upon legality afterwards, is not a recipe for producing election results that have the public acceptance democratic stability requires.
It’s his country, he just lets you live in it.
