    the whole Scalia quote...
    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/07/us/we-the-people-loses-appeal-with-people-around-the-world.html
    seems like he thinks any Constitution/bill of rights/etc. is just a 'parchment guarantee'.

    I disagree, but he's got a 'right' to say it.

    It's not the words on a piece parchment that protect freedom but the commitment of the people.

    Trajan (a first time negger) just negged me for this thread.

    What's the problem...? So it's okay to criticize Ginsberg, but not Scalia?

    Why yes they are. It's what populist anger looks like. I can understand your puzzlement seeing as how populism has been out of fashion for 40 years, that's far too long for the pendulum to swing towards elitism.
