Stalking Scalia

Ronald Cass is the former dean of Boston University Law School. In a powerful column for RealClearPolitics today he writes regarding the media assault on Justice Scalia:

The game now is to find a way of making it seem that Scalia’s personal life and conduct commit him to positions on important legal issues in a way that interferes with his ability to decide matters impartially – not because Scalia has in fact done so and not because his accusers care about impartiality. Instead, the game matters because Scalia is the leading voice for a set of legal propositions that run counter to the political, social, and constitutional agenda of the dominant voices in almost every major element of America’s Speaking elites.

Suffice it to say that Cass’s column explains a lot.
