  •  We liberals give Scalia too much publicity (0+ / 0-)

    He really isn't that important.  He authors very few of the contentious 5-4 decisions.  He hasn't really created his own strain of legal theory.  Justice Alito, also very conservative, seems to have a better conservative legal theory (see his opinions in the Westboro case and the GPS tracking case).

    Scalia is a bad judge and I think he tries to keep the class divide very real but his fame is based not on his opinions but rather on his bombastic personality.  Something we on the left should ignore.
