Antonin Scalia is a Damned Liar

The Worst Supreme Court Justice Imaginable is now claiming that it was Al Gore's fault that the Florida election fiasco landed in the Supreme Court. The case, you'll recall, was named Bush v. Gore--in other words, Bush was the plaintiff. It was Bush's thugs that were fighting to overturn the Florida Supreme Court's recount decision. Scalia further lies when he says that the media recounts showed Bush won anyway. They showed no such thing, as many can document.

The 2000 election was a Republican coup d'etat and Scalia was a part of it. Is there any wonder that he would defend it so ardently now?

By the way, as a reminder, here, to me, is the key moment in the Florida recount: a riot staged by Republican goons to stop the Miami Board of Elections from completing its work. Check out the identities of the rioters.

Isn't that a great picture? I've got that one stashed away on the hard drive.
