    Well, to start with, any Supreme Court justice who speaks so openly on issues that will be coming in front of him/her later is an idiot. Scalia with his speeches has obviously prejudged this and other cases. Other justices may have prejudged, but they have the sense to keep their mouths shut.

    I am sure you don't like Bill Maher, but some good points here -
    Maher: Bachmann and Scalia are ‘the exact same idiot’

    ome people call Bachmann a “loon,” Maher said, while considering Scalia a serious legal mind, but their views are the same mishmash of talk radio paranoia and fundamentalist Christian theology.

    “New Rule,” Maher said, “I know we can’t establish a religious test for office, but if you believe we’re living in the End Times like Michele Bachmann does, we get to take away the car keys.”

    “Yes, let Jesus take the wheel,” he continued. “If you think the world is about to end, that’s your right, but you don’t get to vote on next year’s budget, because it doesn’t concern you.”

    He went on to point out that in an interview this week, Scalia said the believes the devil is a real person who is tempting people away from God.

    The decision upheld an Environmental Protection Agency regulation managing interstate air pollution. In his dissent, Scalia accused the six justices who upheld the rule of writing a decision that “feeds the uncontrolled growth of the administrative state at the expense of government by the people,” and of approving an “undemocratic revision of the Clean Air Act.” But Jonathan Adler, a professor at the Case Western University School of Law and a writer for the conservative law blog Volokh Conspiracy, noted that Scalia’s dissent misstates the context of a 2001 Clean Air Act case, Whitman v. American Trucking Assns., Inc., in which Scalia himself actually wrote the opinion.
    Maybe you'll blame that last one on his aides instead of saying Scalia needs to take responsibility for his decisions.

    Perhaps he has an high IQ; but he sure doesn't apply it well. My personal belief is he has been blinded by his catholic ideology, but that's just my personal opinion

    Yes, that is true, you can still be smart and make mistakes. I disagree with probably 75% or more of Ginsberg's opinions. She has a leftist agenda and will pervert the Constitution to get to the end that she wants. As far as I know, she is a wonderful, thoughtful person. But as we see in this thread, Scalia is a monster to the left because of his opinions. That's just dishonest and cowardly.

    Let me ask you this: Can you say about any SCOTUS decision that you do not like it because of personal preference but nevertheless it is the right decision?

    um, scalia is not a great guy just because he got along with one lesbian and impressed your brother hunting one day. He votes against *every* opportunity to expand gay rights and says truly heinous filth in his dissents, harming far more than one lesbian. That's all that matters to me

    And what kind of judas must this lesbian have been i wonder. I mean damn, scalia voted against legalizing *private consensual sex* and she "gets along great" That is far more scandalous and outrageous than being 'outed' by you here. I'd spit in the bastard's face at the least, and she can get in line

    Actually, they all get along personally, while not agreeing on things politically. That is what grown ups do.

    Antonin Scalia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Appointed to the Court by President Ronald Reagan in 1986, Scalia has been described as the intellectual anchor for the originalist and textualist position in the Court's conservative wing.

    LOL! Look what I found in about 2 seconds. As an aside, maybe you shouldn't reply 95% of the time with "LOL!", it portends a lack of thought.
