    SCOTUS: Scalia on the defensive over gay rights

    This asshole is a plague on the court, he should have never been appointed.

    I'm more upset that he can "ethically" profit from a book. The Supremes should just STFU and do their job.

    I have this theory that common decency is only for commoners. Once you get to the top, uncommon indecency is the new trend and being a proper man with down to earth perceptions and a reasonable outlook on life is in fact, looked down upon among those high up in the social scale.

    Or maybe (daydreaming) have them sign a contract when they get appointed that says there only job is to interpret the COTUS and judge based on that. If they don't they will be impeached and debarred.

    Scalia and Thomas are truly the scum of the scotus. All the rest of them I can respect, if not always agreeing with, and that very much includes Alioto, Roberts and Kennedy.

    These lifetime appointment really need to be Meritocracy based as opposed to partisan selections. There must be some neutral, careful judges out there that would far better serve us in a truly fair manner instead of bringing their political party positions to a function that affects America for decades at a time.

    well Scalia is widely seen as one of the greatest intellects to ever sit on the court. we get the fact that you don't like his views on gays, lesbians etc. and while I disagree with him on his views towards gays he certainly is a better justice than anyone the dems have appointed in the last 40 years

    you might check with people who actually understand USSC jurisprudence. iF merit was a requirement, Scalia would be way up the ladder.

    Read his dissenting opinion on the California video game law from about a year ago, and your opinion should change. That was one of the most idiotic, and painful things I've ever read. This guy is just plain nuts.

    Scalia is a creepy little intellectual thug, isn't he. He never says anything that doesn't involve an insult or a ridiculous sense of his own entitlement and the entitlement of the rich and smug.

    How did this punk ever become a judge? He looks like Lou Costello as a mean drunk.
