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.

Thank you! The debate tonight proved your point. There were 2 people on that stage who could discuss issues down to the nitty gritty - not the businessman, not the doctor, and not the governors. Only one of those 2 people has an established Conservative voting record. Time for fun and games and bunch of repeated slogans is over, it's LONG past time to get serious. Scalia's death today really put that into some REALLY stark contrast to the ride we've all been on, and I have no IDEA what is up with Drudge tonight but the poll won't let me vote.. the winner of this debate was NOT Trump. He looked LOST when it came to issues tonight.

Adios, Scalia, and thank you for all that you did. You will be missed.

I was watching the Titanic sink on TV when I heard about Scalia's death.
An apt metaphor.
