Peter had this article a while back, but I pulled this passage out to show why my love of Antonin Scalia is undying and unconditional:

Noting that the Senate confirmed his high court nomination by a 98-0 vote, Scalia said, “You could not get a judge with my views confirmed to the Court of Appeals today. “He said code words such as “mainstream” and “moderate” are now used to describe liberal judicial nominees.” What is a moderate interpretation of (the Constitution)? Halfway between what it says and halfway between what you want it to say?” he said.
