I agree with E.J. Dionne 100%
Unaccountable power can lead to arrogance. That’s why justices typically feel bound by rules and conventions that Scalia seems to take joy in ignoring
Dionne goes on to give some good examples of Scalia’s political leanings and his injecting them into his Supreme court rulings, go read the whole thing.
My take on it is that Fat Tony has been rogue actor for a long damned time and Dionne’s list is just the tip of the iceberg.
There is a long list of his transgressions in my opinion, Citizens United is at the very top of that list too.
I do agree with him on his point that if Fat Tony wants to play politics so bad he should fucking resign his so called impartial seat and start campaigning tomorrow.
I’m sure he would have no problem lining up some wealthy donors.
Oh, and take that Right Wing hack Alito with ya.
