  •  Breaking: Scalia is still an ass. (13+ / 0-)
    The Court's opinion both in explaining its jurisdiction and its decision "both spring from the same diseased root: an exalted notion of the role of this court in American democratic society."
    So he's fine with the court exalting itself to substitute its opinion for that of Congress when it comes to voting rights, but not when it comes to marriage rights.

      Yeah, Scalia is kind of and asshole when it comes to social issues.
