Scalia Speaks

Our great Supreme Court Justice and Mussolini fan Antonin Scalia speaks out:

"It is not a rare phenomenon that what is legal may also be quite irresponsible..... What can be said often should not be said. Prof. Reidenberg's exercise is an example of perfectly legal, abominably poor judgment. Since he was not teaching a course in judgment, I presume he felt no responsibility to display any."

When, Oh mighty Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, will we be hearing you make a similar proclamation about the writings of your fellow Federal Judge, Jay Bybee? Could we elicit an opinion from you concerning Judge Jay Bybee's "abominably poor judgment?" Would you willing to go so far as to suggest that Judge Jay Bybee said "what...should not be said?"

No, I didn't think so. You have the time to rail against some college professor for a classroom assignment, but not to show any ire against one of the most loathesome criminals in the history of American justice.

Well, you are a Republican, after all.

By the way, this just occurred to me. Are you by any chance the same Justice Antonin Scalia who helped saddle our country with the worst President in history? No, that must be some other guy.
