Breaking: Scalia Will Continue Not Attending SOTU
Antonin Scalia hasn't attended the State of the Union address in a decade and will continue that tradition tonight.
This just in from The Hill:
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told The Hill on Monday evening that he does not plan on attending the State of the Union address on Tuesday.
The conservative-leaning jurist said that he hasn’t “gone to the State of the Union in at least 10 years, and I’m not starting tomorrow night either.”
Good to know.
Seriously: Scalia is right not to lend the credence of the judiciary to what has long been a partisan pep rally. But inertia is not news.
