Scalia's proving to be a bigger diva than I ever expected.

“He’s a court of appeals judge, isn’t he?” Scalia, 76, said of Posner. “He doesn’t sit in judgment of my opinions as far as I’m concerned.”

Patrick O'Donnell: You're really doing mental gymnastics to make this about Scalia's Catholicism. It's becoming more and more common to see such flagrant anti-Catholicism on display, unfortunately. And nice attempt to hide your bigotry behind the word "analogous."

Seems they both give as good as they take: http://appellatedaily.blogspot.com/2011/10/good-old-days-scorecard-fall-2011.html

Little of both, I think, but moving in Brad's direction.

I don't think so.

There is a reason normal people retire at 65...

erratum (a Freudian slip?): spillover or by-product effect

This might be construed as ANALOGOUS to an attitude of religious arrogance or superiority owing to a spillover or by-product fact of the Catholic view on Jewish law and the “old” Covenant, Catholic doctrine having “transcended” in an Hegelian sense Jewish law and offering a “new” (read: ‘better’) Covenant…. The Catholic (e.g., Justice Scalia) once prayed in mass for the “perfidis Judaeis” (e.g., Posner), now she merely prays for the Jewish people to “hear the Word of God,” presumably, in other words…: analogous to the structrual relationship between a mere court of appeals judge alongside a Supreme Court justice…indeed.
