Justice Antonin Scalia, wit.

Speaking of the U.S. Supreme Court, the LA Times this morning printed an article about what it perceives as Justice Antonin Scalia’s ascendance.  Blawgletter finds the subject interesting — not least because His Honor opposes constitutional limits on punitive damages and thus dissented in today’s Weyerhaueser decision (post with opinion link here) — but also because of his low impulse control.  For example:  "I’m a textualist. I’m an originalist. I’m not a nut," he told students at Claremont McKenna College this month.

Good stuff.
