It's time to impeach Scalia.

By wearing the hat that he wore today he donned a thinly veiled reference to a Catholic theocracy that he wishes reigned today. He has repeatedly proven he is partisan rather than judicial and should have no place on the Supreme Court.

9. Maybe he was channelling the other Thomas....Cromwell. Most assuredly a non-Catholic.

The religion doesn't fit, but the palace intrigue sure does.

14. Actually, read up on More. The movie didn't do him justice

He was a narrow, rigid fanatic who burned a lot of Protestants to death after having them tortured for the crime of disagreeing with him (and Rome).

He was not that nice a guy, perfectly capable of a lot of palace intrigue of his own.

I think Scalia's round head under More's hat is perfect.

15. I know...I'm just coming back at those who are shopping the "Catholic" angle.

It isn't a "Catholic" hat--it was kinda like the ball cap of its day. That's pretty much the point I'm going for!

40. It may or may not be a purely "Catholic Hat" ....but it was given for he following reason...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/04/04/AR2007040401721.html

For his participation in the societies Red Mass celebration.


I still think its a fuck you.

42. Yes, I know. But we don't know with certainty that Scalia's wearing of the chapeau has anything

to do with Catholic expression.

He could be playing the thug. He could be seeking attention. Or perhaps his ears get terribly cold and that was the only black hat he owned.

As I said, if he's to be arrested, it should be by the Fashion Police.

... though, I thought it was just his "flogging hat"

I think it made his ass look big, but then how can you tell where his ass really is?

Princess Beatrice should have been beheaded at the Tower of London.

They serve for life, as I recall.

If I'm wrong, I'm apologizing ahead of time.

could this get any more fucking ridiculous. you want to impeach him for his hat??? grab a clue, honey. It ain't gonna happen and if someone wanted to impeach any other SCOTUS member for a hat, I'd think it was just as stupid.

26. why yes they have, but sorry that is not grounds for impeachment

here's a bit of logic for you: If being anti-progressive as a SCOTUS member is grounds for impeachment, then so too is being progressive. I can't stand Scalia or his judicial philosophy but that is not grounds for impeachment. Hey, maybe you'd like to impeach Ruth Bader Ginsburg too for being a close friend of his. I'm sorry you don't see how dangerous your thinking is.

31. From the Atlantic:

 

The hat is a custom-made replica of the hat depicted in Holbeinís famous portrait of St. Thomas More. It was a gift from the St. Thomas More Society of Richmond, Virginia. We presented it to him in November 2010 as a memento of his participation in our 27th annual Red Mass and dinner.
