EDITED POST

My original post was to wish for him to RIH (Rot In Hell). It's been pointed out that this was unseemly...not that the other side wouldn't be even more vitriolic regarding any of our Liberal Icons. I read the Wing-Nut websites and I know what was said when Senator Edward M. Kennedy left us.

Let's celebrate the opportunity this presents for President Obama and work twice as hard to get EITHER Hillary or Bernie elected President so they get the next pick as well.

For my friends in the UK or over-seas...I'm not even sure what the equivalent is. He wasn't an elected official, so perhaps not quite in the Thatcher realm, but in the States, the Supreme Court is for LIFE and Justice Scalia has been spewing his hatred and poison into the Law of the Land longer than most of our politicians have been in office.

Antonin Scalia, Justice on the Supreme Court, Dies at 79

Negative Karma, indeed. I thought the cheering for Bin Laden's death was bad, but this... I'm sorry, sweetie, it's your right to post whatever you want, but I'm disappointed in you. Tacky is very unbecoming.

Thank you. It's been awhile since I had the "blood sport" reaction either to politics or a fandom issue, and it's not my best side. I do feel Mr. Scalia was a truly horrible human being, but perhaps the best hope is that he gets everything he deserves and to exult in the opportunity the President now has to try and leave a lasting legacy on the Court

Many of us on Twitter were celebrating! When I heard it wasn't a hoax, I fist-pumped and yelled, "YES!".

I'm thinking the above commenter is right, but as I say---torn. I might edit or ammend the post in some way. Maybe we should just celebrate the fact that President Obama (barring Senate obstruction) gets one more shot putting someone on the court.

I missed your first post but...yeah. It's hard to rise above that piece of--oops.

And I do want to be better than that but when I think of what he's said and done over the years it's hard. Sigh.
