R.I.P. Antonin

It is with great sadness that I learned that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away.  I am saddened for him, naturally.  But worse is my sadness for our country to have lost such a great member of the Court, one who truly understands the Constitution and how and when it applies. 

We now have the threat of stupidity forced upon the nation to a greater degree than it has thus far been imposed.  Obama, the Idiot-in-Chief, the empty suit, the bane of our nation's existence, will no doubt select another brain-dead leftist to pervert the Constitution in the furtherance of leftist ideology.  I don't know if there are enough Senators wise enough to do the right thing in terms of who they are willing to confirm.  There should be no attempt to posture themselves as anything but committed to the most Constitutionally literate and devoted candidate for the appointment.  No more Sotomayors.  No more Ginsburgs.  No more Kennedys.  No more Breyers.  No more Kagans. 

We need another Scalia, another Thomas, another Alito.  At the very least, another no worse than Roberts.

We won't likely get one.  We'll get another idiot with an agenda far removed from that of the duty of a Supreme Court Justice. 

The passing of Antonin Scalia is a true American Tragedy for both the loss of possibly the wisest Justice we've seen since his appointment on September 26, 1986, as well as for the horror that will follow given who Obama will nominate to replace him. 

We are so screwed.
