I feel better about Justice Scalia’s respect for the Constitution. I just can’t imagine how much better off we’d be had President Bush urged Congress to elevate Scalia to Chief Justice instead of John Roberts. President Bush could’ve pushed it through Congress by threatening another veto. I know it, so I blame him for this horrible injustice.
On the eve of oral argument in a key Supreme Court case on the rights of alleged terrorists, a group of retired U.S. generals and admirals has asked Justice Antonin Scalia to recuse himself, arguing that his recent public comments on the subject make it impossible for him to appear impartial.
Bravo to them, so this is directed elsewhere (*cough*Justice Scalia*cough*): Duh.
