Antonin Scalia writes the legal equivalent of putting Coca Cola and Mentos in your mouth at the same time. His minority (oh, I do love that word sometimes) opinion of the DOMA ruling has some quotes that are just so fetch. Personal favorite:
“That is jaw-dropping. It is an assertion of judicial supremacy over the people’s Representatives in Congress and the Executive,” he wrote, adding that the framers of the Constitution created a judicial branch with limited power in order to “guard their right to self-rule against the black-robed supremacy that today’s majority finds so attractive.”
Which is somewhat ironic considering his siding with the majority (as well as, ahem, white robed supremacists) in striking down section 4 of the Voting Rights Act. But hey, even Supreme Court justices are capable of a little cognitive dissonance now and then.
