Talking about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia giving a speech in a closed-door meeting with the Tea Party Caucus.
Scalia is a judge - not a politician. The responsibilities of a Justice have nothing to do with political causes. If he wants to become a political speaker he should leave the bench .. that's what a proper constitutional "originalist" would do.
Won't he now have to recuse himself from every case brought forth by the Tea Party?
I thought Scalia refused to attend the State of the Union speech because he thinks it inappropriate for a Supreme Court Justice to have to sit and listen to a President express political viewpoints.
But he doesn't think it inappropriate for him to attend a Congressional event .. speaking to a group of like-minded right-wingers led by Rep Michele Bachmann?
I mean, wasn't everybody all up in Clarence Thomas' face when his wife was so high profile and open with her Tea Party politics?
Read about it here: Washington (CNN) -- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is scheduled to speak Monday in a closed-door meeting with the Tea Party Caucus -- an informal group of conservative lawmakers......"
Okay, just for fun, let's imagine his speech topics. How to roll back Roe v Wade .. keep semi-automatic assault weapons free .. explore new ways to reverse Healthcare Reform .. oh hell, just find ways to undo everything this Administration and the former Congress has done in the last 2 years.
