He was colorful, outspoken & charming, Ruth Bader Ginsburg says of Antonin Scalia.

Antonin Scalia was colorful, outspoken & charming, Ruth Bader Ginsburg says, despite how he was mischaracterized by numerous, unscrupulous detractors.

“The public got the wrong impression of him,” she says. Gee, I wonder why. Strange that she didn’t say these things before his death, when it may have had an influence on the culture and society.

Of course, when Justice Ginsburg says “the public” what she really means are the leftists and the liberals who revere her. Most of mainstream America, the moderates and the conservatives, never fell for the demonization of Scalia. The various attempted character assassinations of conservatives, particularly the intelligent, witty ones, doesn’t work like it did when liberals had a stranglehold on the media.

She described the court as a “paler place” because of his absence.

I have to agree with her on this. Scalia’s death casts a long shadow.
