Looky here what Salon posted, and if you do, make sure to have some Valium nearby:
At a book reading and lecture at Washington’s American Enterprise Institute this week, the 76-year-old associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States and self-described “textualist” entertained the crowd by rattling off a litany of his top judicial no-brainers.
“The death penalty? Give me a break. It’s easy. Abortion? Absolutely easy. Nobody ever thought the Constitution prevented restrictions on abortion,” he said. “Homosexual sodomy? Come on. For 200 years, it was criminal in every state.” And then he went to bed that night and slept like a baby.
Easy peasy no-brainers? Well, sure, because Scalia’s clearly an expert in brainlessness.
Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren’s opponent in the Massachusetts Senate race, picked Scalia as one of his favorite Supreme Court justices, pass it on. And then remember that little fun fact in November.
