Mulligan: Bachmann & Scalia, together at last

By Dana Milbank

Antonin Scalia is joining the Tea Party. He'll speak at an event for members of Congress in January hosted by Michele Bachmann's Tea Party Caucus. Bachmann's group is too radioactive even for many House Republicans, but Nino doesn't worry about appearances -- and if you've got a problem with that, he'll treat you to a Sicilian hand gesture. The justice will lecture lawmakers on the separation of powers, or, in this case, the lack thereof.

Clarence Thomas' wife, the former head of a tea party group, probably talked Scalia into it. Rumor has it that Thomas and Scalia are forming the SCOTUS Tea Party Caucus.

This is why Scalia is a great justice. Douglas would have done the same for a socialist or liberal group in the fourties or fifties,when liberals were commies compared to today's progressives, like the timid Obama. Good for Scalia. The writers of the article are trying to be archly smug. In fact, they show their intellectual ignorance. Yes, today's "liberals",tea party activsts hav brains. Just like the Communist intellectuals of the thirties, forties and fifties. You might be wrong, but it doesn't mean you aren't brilliant. An Obama is not a Stevenson nor a Ickes. But what can you do. We live in multicultural times,when morons are praised because of their origin and not because of their intellect. In other words, MLK and Malcom X, for those of you who are too caught up in the ipod age to know, would have despised Obama and the authors of this article.

Scalia's a genius. What can you do? Bill douglas would have done the same for a radical left group.
