More irresponsible fear-mongering by the right. This time from Newt Gingrich and even worse, from a Supreme Court justice, Antonin Scalia.

Lose a city? To honor the Constitution will cost many American lives? How low must the right sink? It's embarrassing that Scalia is a judge period, much less on the Supreme Court. He's an overt political operative as opposed to an objective enforcer of the law -- he's the purist example of an "activist" judge. Recall on 60 Minutes when asked about the 2000 election decision he simply said "get over it." Smug pr*ck.

As for Newt, need I say more. Fortunately most sane people no longer take him seriously, if they ever did, but the problem is he's still a reverent figure on the right. Scary.

UPDATE: Scalia said, "The nation will live to regret what the court has done today." If he was talking about what the Court did in 2000 to install GW as president, he would most certainly be correct!
