    I have always felt that Scalia is a loose cannon and unfit to serve on the Supreme Court. I also don't believe he's smart enough to be there.

    Thankfully, your opinion on someone elses intelligence is about as important as an actors opinion on nuclear physics.

    Scalia is right. The Constitution is silent on sodomy, gay marriage, abortion etc. If you want to pretend that those rights are covered in the Constitution and not left up to the states then your free to it I guess. But that would mean that the Constitution means absolutely nothing as we could just make stuff up as we go along. That is in fact the very definition of "progressive." What is it that liberals hate about Scalia? Scalia is blocking their path to limitless federal power.

    Scalia does not have an open mind. He's like a child prone to throwing tantrums.

    Defining what is Constitutional is not based on one's personal morality.
