Ann, when are you going to get your own page so fans don't always have to click on the Toles page to get to you? You are a Pulitzer Prize winner just like Toles so why don't you merit your own Wash Po link? Just the other day there was a comment asking how fans can purchase autographed copies of your animations and the next thing you know Toles is having a contest and giving away an autographed copy to the winner? Just saying you need your own link is all.

Tole's counter attack against Republicans tonight is what liberals do just like the old Pot and Pan leftist protests the Democrats use to put on sponsored by the Communist Party of America out by the Grant Statue in front of the Capital on the night when Bush gave the State of the Union.

Oldhat . . . . Saw your shadow when you crawled from under the rock January 23rd and 25th, eh?
Time to crawl back under and wait . . . for better weather, say 2500 AD?

Perhaps one day when Scalia does something that warrents positive response then he will get it!
Scalia has and problably will always be like Thomas and Alito, conservative in their thoughts, opinions and decisions. Roberts I feel is a tiny bit more moderate on certain issues but still shows his conservative slant when it suites him.

Do you think Ginsberg's ACLU would defend Breyer's right to appear on Fox News like he did not too long ago?

I don't know how much my opinion matters, but it seems that every published comment is something negative on Scalia. Isn't it about time someone say something positive about him? I really think that those who are publishing comments against Scalia are really ganging up against him without seeing the positive things that he does (including the writers of these editorials).

Scalia is certainly no intellectual giant. He, along with Roberts & Alito just look like ones when they stand next to midgets like Kagan or Sotomajor.

Ahh yes, but then, affirmative action does have its drawbacks. Doesn't it?

I hold this Court in contempt!

No, really, I do.

Not joking here.

should do balance toon with breyer using the consitution as rear wipe and ginsburg tossing it in the waste basket

This new format doesn't seem to be as conducive to comments. By now, an editorial like this, with Ann's gifted animated caricatures and wit, would have had a whole page full of comments, though this one's just as easy to use.

The son of a card carrying member of the Italian Fascist Party. Nuts don't fall far from the tree.

I'd say that about nails it.

In a country with very serious problems, the problems with the partisan justices nominated by the Bushes (father and son)are arguably the most acute. It should be pointed out that no other advanced country would ever nominate such partisans, let alone sit them on the bench. More and more courts in the US resemble those in Russia and the Chinese republic, and other corrupted states.

It would have been more realistic had the Cartoonist drawn a picture of Scalia using the Constitution for tissue paper while sitting on the toilet.

He and the other four radical reichwing Justices on the Supreme Court have made a mockery of the Constitution, the Supreme Court, and the positions they hold.

The Founding Fathers would vomit over the sight of Scalia, and his selling of his position to the "HIGHEST BIDDER".

Very true, and a very necessary editorial! This Bush Supreme Court's decision to make Corporations into "persons" is the end of our democracy! Corporations will be able to buy any election and continue to stack our Congress with anyone who will do their bidding. I'm sure the ruling must be illegal and should be struck down because it gives every shareholder in the corporation the right of TWO people~~ONE, as themself, and TWO, as the corporation!

I remember when the Supreme Court used to be HONORABLE!

Read the associated story.. IT'S SO OBVIOUS that Scalia, Thomas and Roberts are totally unworthy of any Judicial post.

Ms Telnaes' animation is too kind for such rascals1
