With all the right wing blather about impeaching Obama I suggest we Progressives begin our own campaign to impeach Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. This is not a new idea, Thom Hartman made a case in 2012 on his radio show. But it is long past due and needs more publicity and support.
I know the House is controlled by Republicans and we would never get 67 votes in the Senate. But a highly publicized and loud call for his impeachment will send several messages. One, it would highlight the crazy that occupies this man's mind. Two, there are legitimate issues with Scalia's jurisprudence. Besides the fact that he cannot even remember his own written decisions, he has taken gifts from people with cases before the SC, has made multiple political speeches against Obama and liberals and he has met with Tea Party leaders behind closed doors. Article 3, Section I of the Constitution states, "The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour..." I submit that Scalia has not exhibited good behavior. Take a look at the recent EPA decision. He got wrong a 2001 decision that he voted for himself! Meeting with and planning political steps with political leaders is hardly good behavior for a sitting Justice. Its long past due that we on the left start fighting back!
