Justice Scalia Named Grand Marshal of New York's Columbus Day Parade
But I'm sure he'd rather be appointed Chief Justice.

2. Grand Marshal. Boy, that Italian connection really works, doesn't it?
Wonder how this makes Italian Democrats feel?

4. Just like his "buddy Dick" might say...
"Go f*ck yourself."

Hell, he handed Shrub the Presidency. So much for loyalty, right? he can't be a happy camper right about now. He was absent from the swearing-in today.

Paybacks are a bitch.

Peace.

5. What is that
the consolation prize? Poor Scalia, let's give him a parade. He must feel just awful.

Having to look at this

and know the job should have been his.

(he looks like he's about to laugh maniacally doesn't he.)

6. After ready Zinn's "People's History",
I think "Columbus Day" should be discontinued. For God's sake, Columbus was a genocidal maniac. But, then, we celebrate him for being a hell of a navigator! Oops, guess he missed India by a hemisphere.

So maybe Scalia is a good man for the job, here.

7. Well, *this* Italian-American from Queens
spits in this pig's face. Yet another reason to be ashamed of Columbus' Day.
