I really, really don't understand how a  SCOTUS member can be allowed to continue to flaunt his utter disdain in everyone's face in public.  The real headline from earlier this year was :

Scalia: State of the Union 'a childish spectacle'
when Scalia was talking about the SOTU address.  But then, did you watch him at the WHCD couple of days ago?

Here is the link to the story from February http://www.usatoday.com/...  in which he goes on with opinions like this:

Scalia bemoaned that "it has turned into a childish spectacle, and I don't think that I want to be there to lend dignity to it."
and this:
"The State of the Union is not something I write on my calendar," Scalia said during his own remarks before the Smithsonian Associates at George Washington University. But he quipped, "I didn't set this up tonight just to upstage the president."
But then I saw him at the WHCD sitting at the FOX table as O'Reilly's best friend - HUH!!  I mean a big WTF????
I don't get it.  He thinks the SOTU is a waste of his time but the WHCD is important??  And to make sure we know what he thinks of us - he  shows up at FOX's table with O'Reilly with Obama speaking - that takes a set of brass balls.  Did anyone spot any loofah poufs???

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
