The Honorable Associate Justice Antonin Gregory Scalia - RIP
Word comes today that Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, the lion of conservatism and strict constitutionalism on the Supreme Court, died today on a hunting trip in Texas.
When you see the flags half-masted this time, know that it's for a man among men, and a brilliant legal mind and staunch defender of the Republic as intended by the Founding Fathers.
We have lost a giant today.
With respect to the question of replacing him on the court, if Bitch McConnell and the cacophonous collection of cronies dubiously identified as the Republican caucus in the U.S. Senate can't manage to stonewall any attempt by lame duck HopeyDopey to replace him before the change of office next January, the entire collection of them isn't worth a bucket of pig droppings.
Should they perform their usual senatorial maneuver these last few years, and present the President with their offered hindquarters, pants helpfully already around their ankles, their reward in a just world would be to subsequently find their heads on the end of pike poles, and separated from their bodies by some yards of distance.
This is also the reason the utter idiots agitating for Trump have to be finally and decisively shown the door. This and the prospect of 1-3 additional SCOTUS appointments over the next 4-8 years is why electing a president is too important a task, among many such, to be left to a bunch of chattering @$$clowns.
