Supreme Court Justice Scalia dead at 79
Scalia used his keen intellect and missionary zeal in an unyielding attempt to move the court farther to the right and to get it to embrace his “originalist” view of judging after his 1986 appointment by President Ronald Reagan.
His 2008 opinion for the court in favor of gun rights was his crowning moment in more than 30 years on the bench.
Scalia was far from perfect. But what Obama willl nominate in his stead is fucking scary. I’ve long suspected that even left-leaning Ginsburg was holding out till the next administration because she didn’t want Obama picking her successor.
