…for pulling a lip-reader’s Joe Wilson during the State of the Union Address. While the President added “with all due respect to the Separation of Powers,” “Justice” Alito, aka Scalito, did not. That’s because Republicans like him don’t believe in the concept, at least politically. Undisciplined immaturity is to be expected in a relative newby to the High Court; but some kids you just have to leave home with the 14-year-old sitter, can’t take ’em anywhere, like to a Joint Session of Congress on live global television — they might pick their nose, or mouth rude comments to the grownups.
Understand this: Federal judges are not supposed to be politicians; Presidents are. Obama could rip you up one side and down the other, Your Dishonor; you just sit there still and quiet like a man. Anyway, what do you care?: you just handed Congress back to your party till the end of time — and the White House in two more years — so Obama’s agenda (whatever that was) is basically dead in the water. You won’t even have to steal them anymore, just buy them!
Alito’s behavior actually blows the cover right off the GOP partisanship of the Court majority. If Congress and the Court itself don’t discipline or censure Alito, maybe we need to impeach all 5 Repugs on the Court. Or really make Obama like FDR, and threaten to appoint a couple more real jurists to that Court, to counterbalance the Reagan-Bush-Bush unConstitutional partisans.
