The intellectual giant of the Supreme Court is dead.
Antonin Scalia, an unabashed Catholic conservative, has vexed liberal elite with his eloquent defense of the Constitution as envisioned by our Founding Fathers. His vacancy on the court will allow President Obama an opportunity to replace him with a liberal, tipping the balance of the court for years to come.
Coming in this election year, Justice Scalia’s death is sure to unleash a firestorm of partisan politics, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the Clarence Thomas hearings.
Knowing the president, he will try to appoint the most liberal person he can find to spark a partisan fight to deprive Republicans of the Senate and the White House. It is going to get ugly.
Out of all the damage his presidency has done to this once great nation, a new, ultra liberal Supreme Court will be his most destructive legacy yet.
Justice Scalia has served this nation well. He was a man of God. May he rest in peace, and I am sure that he is.
