But regarding Scalia... I find his moral conviction inspiring. Not sure I agree with him (I feel undecided on and rather unqualified to talk about constitutional law issues), but he was (to my knowledge) a pillar of intellectual consistency. I admire that and respect that a lot.

I agree with that to an extent but yes, he does have less admirable things on his record.

Reid poisoned the well when he went to simple majority votes to confirm appellate court judges. Now the GOP is in control and will play their cards to delay the next SCOTUS nominee.

Now it becomes a campaign issue. Americans will learn a lot more about the Judicial Branch.

So when Hillary is elected and the Dems get 51 Senators, Obama is on the Court

RIP Scalia. I'm a big fan of his.

In case the stakes for this election weren't high enough.....
I made a comment yesterday that the new president will be responsible for picking at least 3 new justices. I believe Scalia was one of the justices expected to retire sometime in the next couple years, but I could be wrong.

The idea of Obama as a SCOTUS justice is enough to make me believe that there might be an all-powerful deity out there who loves us and wants us to be happy.

I feel especially bad for Justice Clarence Thomas,
He won't know how to vote now.

Will he break his silence over Scalia's death?

I love this idea that Obama shouldn't be allowed to nominate a new justice because he'll be out of office next year. If another justice dies the day after the next president is sworn in, he or she better not appoint anybody either because a candidate from the rival party might become president in three years and 364 days.

"He shouldn't be allowed to nominate a new justice" = "Us conservatives are scared the next justice won't be a complete and total cunt"

"We vow to uphold the constitution!" = "we will not let the president execute his constitutional right to elect a new justice!"

(Of course, the other side blocks justices as well when it comes up. But hi, hypocrites!)
