Scalia Debates, Crushes ACLU President

UPDATE: I watched the video, and, despite the reaction from the biased crowd, Scalia did great. Nadine Strossen (the ACLU President) also made a couple dozen gaffs worth laughing at.

"Washington D.C. is the melting pot of the melting pots" - opening statement of Johnny Barnes National Capital Director of the ACLU.
So melting pots are melting together. Glad the lib's are making as much sense as usual...

From Jay of
Stop the ACLU :

    "Arguing that liberal judges in the past improperly established new political rights such as abortion, Scalia warned, 'Someday, you’re going to get a very conservative Supreme Court and regret that approach.'"

    Bingo! Scalia slams them here. To put things in context, he said this after speaking about what he called judicial aristocracy, and how one day the consequences of putting so much power in the hands of nine lawyers might come back to bite them. The news report doesn’t include it, but all Nadine Strossen had to say to this was, “Let’s hope not.” This response was quite revealing if put in the proper context. She was pretty much saying that bad calls are o.k. as long as they go in the direction of the ACLU’s philosphy.
