insult to injury
The Chief Justice, a conservative [*insert bitter laughter here*] appointed by George W. Bush [*again*], said at a federal judicial conference in Pennsylvania Friday how he would spend his time until the court goes back in session in October. He joked about his need for a safe hideout, then wryly observed that his commitment to teach a class in Malta — an island in the Mediterranean Sea — was “a good idea.”
WTF?!? Is the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court actually standing in public with his face hanging out making “jokes” about how the “dangerous” Constitutional Originalists [and believers in rational, internally consistent thought in general] are violent barbarians who might physically attack him and from whom he needs to hide?
