Maybe it's 'cause he's looney

This article from Salon tries to take a well-reasoned approach to the world of crazy that Justice Scalia's tenure as a justice has become, but in doing so, I think the author kind of misses the point. People are shying away from Scalia because it seems like he has lost even his basic ability to practice law. In fact, his work is the inverse of what justices are supposed to do, which is hear arguments and then decide which is better according to logic, reason and Constitutional principles. He has decided what he thinks and he is going to twist arguments to confirm his beliefs. And some of the twisting is very, very far from reasonable or principled at this point.
