He may have been up there in years, but still, kinda unexpected, this news.

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

Hold on to your hats, buckeroos. Shit's about to get even crazier on the campaign trail.

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

This is my shocked face.

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.

Also consistent in his treatment of other human beings.

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.
