Pure applesauce? Can anyone take this guy seriously anymore? I'm not the only one who thinks it's time for him to go.
Justice Scalia’s excessive rhetoric in the same-sex marriage decision about “unelected lawyers” and “commissions of nine people” rings more than hollow given Scalia’s frequent votes to overturn other important decisions by federal, state, and local legislative bodies. His accusations are in fact hypocritical to the core.He's a double bagger for sure!
Just being wildly inconsistent, however, is no reason for a Supreme Court Justice to resign. In addition to his voting record, Justice Scalia has leveled such personal attacks at other Justices that he is becoming, if he has not already become, a caricature of the bitter old man despondent about the “good old days.” Although I could write an entire law review article just detailing Scalia’s improper personal insults, it is enough to simply quote from his same-sex marriage dissent: “If, even as the price to be paid for a fifth vote, I ever joined an opinion or the Court that began [quoting Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion], I would hide my head in a bag. The Supreme Court of the United States has descended from the disciplined legal reasoning of John Marshall and Joseph Story to the mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie.”
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend readers! You are loved and appreciated.
