Scalia's Lack of Honesty
One student asked whether Scalia believed the 2000 decision in Bush v. Gore was an example of judicial activism . . . "My first response to that question always is, it's six years ago. Get over it!" Scalia said. He then explained that "It surely is not activist to apply the text of the Constitution, which is what the court did."
Six years? Get over it? Heck, Roe was 33 years ago. When you gonna get over that Justice Scalia? But the more serious point is the claim of textualism for Bush v. Gore. Let's discuss it on the other side.
