Scalia’s Rant — “a pompous celebrant of his own virtue and rectitude”

  “Scalia, who 25 years ago had a certain gift for pointing out the blindness and hypocrisy of certain versions of limousine liberalism, has in his old age become an increasingly intolerant and intolerable blowhard: a pompous celebrant of his own virtue and rectitude, a purveyor of intemperate jeremiads against the degeneracy of the age, and now an author of hysterical diatribes against foreign invaders, who threaten all that is holy” writes University of Colorado law professor Paul Campos in Salon. As proof, he cites Scalia’s dissent in Arizona v. United States which struck down most of Arizona’s illegal immigration law. I agree — long the bully, J. Scalia really has turned into the junkyard dog of the Court. More on the story can be found at the ABA Journal here.
