Is he going for that retro Torquemada look?

1. I did laugh at that.

Looks like something Rembrandt would wear.

8. Or a medieval person.

Seems to suit the medievalist in Scalia.

4. Lobotomy sutures require protection.

Especially out in the cold. The skull doesn't completely heal.

and decided that I liked them both.

She's not some stuffed shirt like the rest of them.

16. It's just his official jurist hat.

It goes with the medieval robes judges wear. They rarely preside in formal open air proceedings so you never see them, but they have them.

24. I see they caught Justice Scalia in his usual 'stupid mouth agape' pose.

Or as I call it, 'always confused, stupidus benedictus'.

It gives his mind a place to ooze to when he's about to lose it.

37. The last of the Medici.

Indeed, his politics and personal philosophy would fit in well with the 16th Century patricians.

39. Hey, that's really insulting...to the hat.

The hat isn't stupid.

It's the water-carrying Authoritarian that dreams of bringing about a Fascist State for his Oligarch patrons as his legacy that's underneath it that has the problem.

41. I think the poor wittle baby needs attention

and he is jealous because the VP and SOTOMAYOR and POTUS and ROBERTS are getting all of it.

I wonder who picked what judges would administer the oaths. I would guess that Roberts would be one, since he's Chief Justice SCOTUS?
