On Scalia’s Dissent

June 16, 2008

I welcome the decision to allow habeas rights to the prisoners at Gitmo.  It would be absolutely scary if any further President would be able to imprison American citizens on his say-so.  But in regard to Scalia: if he really disagreed with the court this much, he could resign his seat on the Supreme Court, which I believe would send a strong message abut how wrong he thought this action was.

But he’s not, as of this writing. I like to imagine a member of the press asking him why he doesn’t take that very action.  In my opinion, he’d answer, “What – and give up show business?”
