"Fidelio is the password--for admittance. But, may I ask, what is the password--for the house?"
Alito: I don't care what our decisions say, I still don't like being around ...their kind.
Thomas: Uhh...who? Blacks? Sam...I...uh...
Thomas: Oh, yeah. Me too.
Who is the white-haired guy in the business suit with his back to the camera (and evidently chatting with the Chief Justice)?
You need to get out the leftist cocoon and go out and watch Scalia speak somewhere. You'll find he is quite beloved outside of the ACLU, NAMBLA, and HRW clubhouses.
He's the Marlboro Man -- the man who tells the Justices how to vote and who actually controls the President, Congress, DoD, State, the CIA, FBI and all other important government functions. Bloody stupid letting himself be photographed when meeting with the President and the SCOTUS. You'll notice Dave that you were the only one to notice in nearly 80 comments. That problem will be resolved in 5, . . .4, . . .3, . . .

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.
We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.
And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
