Scalia:
“Politicized Court” criticism “enrages” me

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said it “enrages”
him when people refer to the court as “politicized,” and that neither he
nor any of the judges are voting a certain way because they like a
president or are a member of a particular political party.

The judges “vote that way because that’s who they are, they were
selected because of who they are.

a) He’s lying.

b) He’s fooling himself.

c) He’s damning his fellow supremes even more than if he stated they
supported Obamacare Obamatax because they loooooves
them some o’ Obama’s shiny backside.

  1. Worst of all, he refutes his own argument in the process of making it:

    The judges “vote that way because that’s who they are, they were selected because of who they are.

    And they were selected by politicians almost entirely for political reasons, primarily what their political beliefs happen to be, and whether they will implement their political beliefs from the Supreme Court bench.

    Scalia suffers the “fish in water” problem: He has no idea water is wet, because he’s swimming in it.

    • Regarding the Supreme Court and the most visible role it has come to
      play, I still like my idea of having a panel of state-appointed justices
      to judge the Constitutionality of federal laws and actions.

      If you think about it, the Constitution is a contract between the
      several States and the federal government. Possibly The People are a
      party to the contract; depends on how you look at it. Allowing one party
      to a contract to interpret that contract is just asking for abuse …
      such as we have seen for over a century, and blatantly since FDR.

      Let’s change who judges the law at the highest level. I’ll bet we’ll see
      a remarkable change in interpretation.
