  •  Scalia is a right-wing activist. (12+ / 0-)

    Framing him as a hypocrite misses the point; you are being too kind. Scalia will create whatever legal frame he needs for what he wants to do. He is not a judge. He is a hard-core activist in a robe.

    A hypocrite is someone who pretends to have principles that they don't have and whose actions are inconsistent with their supposed principles. I would also say that a hypocrite has a lack of awareness in their inconsistencies; they actually don't know they are being inconsistent. Scalia knows. He knows you know, he knows it's obvious, an knows there ain't nothing that can be done about it. He gets off on his power, and he gets off on doing it in your face. He is, as Rachel said, That Guy.
