How long before Trump or Cruz accuses Obama of having orchestrated the death somehow?

Not much better: Republicans are already talking about blocking anyone whom Obama appoints to replace Scalia.

Yeah, Obama isn't getting a nominee through in his lame duck year. We knew it already, but we need the Democrat to win.

What's even more shocking is that it's the GOP's standard-bearer of decent, Ted Cruz, who is leading the charge.

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.

Wow, dear Lord if this is what people think of his drivel...

He was consistent, I'll give you that. "Intellectually" consistent, I don't even know what that means.

Seems to be a man who could disagree without being disagreeable. He was very well-liked by his colleagues.
