(2-17-16) The unexpected death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has proved to be very divisive as reactions online have ranged from panic that an Obama-stacked Supreme Court would further a left-wing agenda all the way to humor with one wag wise-cracking that the reason Scalia died was that “he forgot to turn his ‘Comfort Zone’ mattress dial to ‘Stay Alive.’”
Meanwhile an Fox News interview has turned up in which the arrogant Scalia is asked if he’s concerned about his opposition to ObamaCare and he answers “So what is he [Obama] going to do to me? Or any of us. We’ve got life tenure.”
So what are the political implications of Scalia’s death?
As soon as the funeral ceremonies are over, it probably won’t be more than a week until Obama puts somebody else up for confirmation to the Supreme Court because he knows how divisive it’s going to be.
