The Response to Scalia’s Death


Three thoughts:

  1.  Political posturing was already taking place within minutes of the announcement of Scalia’s death.
  2.  After the announcement of Scalia’s death a lot of liberals, glad to see the conservative judge dead, turned to social media to write very negative comments of the “good riddance” variety.
  3.  Conservatives appalled by these anti-Scalia comments wrote social media posts to criticize the liberals who wrote them and, in the process, score their own political points.
