It’s enough to make a grown man cry.
One of the last jurists on the Supreme Court who actually believed that the Constitution meant what it said and that there was no room for adding such insanity as international legal interpretation of our laws, the 2nd Amendment doesn’t mean what it says, etc. has now been found dead at a resort in Texas. The Drudge Report siren sums it up best:
From the UK Daily Mail’s coverage this afternoon:
Senior Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead on Saturday in a luxury resort in West Texas, authorities say.
Scalia, 79, died of apparent natural causes while he stayed at the Cibolo Creek Ranch in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.
The Constitution of the United States may well be dead should the spineless leadership in the Republican Party like McConnell and McCain have their way and one of Obama’s anti-American jurists is passed through the approval process and placed on the highest court.
Godspeed Justice Scalia.
And to Thomas Jefferson and the other framers, thank you. It was a good ride while it lasted.
