    and I would bet there is no one on this board with the intellectual gifts of Justice Scalia. Many legal scholars believe he is the most gifted justice to ever sit on the court. Only Roberts and Alito can match his academic record.
    Scalia is a rube. If you want an example of an intelligent conservative Justice, though departed, look to Rehnquist.

    The intellectual bankruptcy of Scalia is obvious in how his opinions have no intellectual center but rather are crafted tendentiously to meet his rightwing political goals.

    Thus, when he thinks states will pass more reactionary laws, he invokes states rights and limiting federal interference. But when the federal government appearsw more reactionary (as in DOMA) suddenly he insists that Congress has occupied the field.

    There is no there there with Scalia, except his bizarre claim to be able to channel the intentions of dead founders, and intuit that they all interpreted the Constitution the same way.

    I don't need to be either. I'm a layman student with an interest in the history of the Court. Rehnquist was serving as a shadow adviser to Nixon while Scalia was making photocopies for the University of Virginia. (I'll note also that you fail to hold yourself to your own standards while proclaiming Scalia the MOST AWESOMEIST JUSTICE EVER."

    Read a little Erwin Chemerinsky. His criticisms of Scalia have basically left Scalia in the trash heap of constitutional scholarship.

    Saying in full what you mean to imply in part isn't 'lying'.

    You clearly don't know a lot about constitutional scholarship. Scalia is a laughingstock of mainstream scholars. He's only a dear of the rightwing cranks.

    Read: The Jurisprudence of Justice Scalia: A Critical Appraisal by Erwin Chemerinsky. He'll set you straight.
