Scalia repeated his earlier statement that people should "get over" the court's
ruling in 2000 that halted Florida's vote recount, giving the presidential
election to Republican Bush over Democrat Al Gore. "I say nonsense," Scalia
said, when asked about critics who say the 5-4 ruling was based on politics and
not justice. "Get over it. It's so old by now."

Douchebag of the century title awarded
The century might be young, but I have a feeling that Supreme Court Injustice Antonin Scalia can retain the title for the next 92 years of "Douchebag of the Century." This guy was the ringleader who installed the worst president in U.S. history against the will of the voters, but we should "get over it." You don't need to go to Yale Law School to know that "halting" the recount is an affront to justice. And when all the Republican appointees, including some appointed by the installed's father do the dirty work on a direct party vote, the rest of us in the sane world are supposed to act like this wasn't the biggest disgrace since the Dred Scott decision.
