THREE DAYS LATER I HAD SCALIAS ALL AROUND MY LIPLINE . . . AND ELSEWHERE

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia goes to Harvard and says some fun stuff:
An audience member later rose to ask Scalia “whether you have any gay friends, and—if not—whether you’d like to be my friend.”

“I probably do have some gay friends,” Scalia said. “I’ve never pressed the point.”

But Scalia said his personal views on social issues have no bearing on his courtroom decisions.

“I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged,” Scalia said.
Hmm. Indeed, sir, that would require more than one position. And frankly, coming out of your mouth, I don't think the student body of Harvard wants to picture that. Maybe he saw Natalie Portman in the audience. Eh.

Still, was that what Bush had in mind when he identified Fat Tony as his ideal Justice in the 2000 debates?

Anyway, hope he receives a cordial welcome if and when he ever turns up in Berkeley. Or here in SB for that matter.

UPDATE: Ooh! Ooh! Beat Atrios to it by half an hour. Eh, he's the man.
