Antonin Scalia dies in his sleep

By Tom Quiner

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.

    What a shame.

    Are we going to get a break?

      This one took the wind out of my sails. I loved Scalia.

    Mine initially. Perhaps our Lord wanted to reward him now AND light a fire under the Republicans in the Senate, forcing them to exhibit some backbone. Those of us who defend the Constitution and Natural knew the battle would come closer to us — we just didn’t get to pick when. Time for courage!

      Amen, brother.

    I think the Senate will stall any attempt by Obama to put any liberal Justice on the Supreme Court.

      If Republicans don’t, they’re done as a party.
