Scalia: I Did Not Have Relations With That Sicilian Gesture
— Ace

A reporter says it was the under-the-chin va fan cul gesture; Scalia says it was more of chin-stroking "I don't care guesture."

Does anyone care either way, besides our liberal suddenly-very-decorous media?

Who gives a rat's ass?

1 I think he'd have communicated more clearly just using one finger.

2 Bush: "That Laurel J. Sweet is a major league asshole."

Cheney: "Big time."

5 From the article:

Unlike most of his colleagues, Scalia is not shy about taking on the media, and has a penchant for doing so in a way that has caused some critics to question his decorum, if not his maturity.

Translation? Scalia's very occasional media criticism hits home with thin skinned liberal reporters.

Big time.

6 I thought the latest they were getting their panties in a twist was over his comments about terrorists not having rights.

7 Fred beat me to the snide comment about Scalia's decorum made by these sophisticate reporters. So let me get this straight; not taking any shit from ignorant reporters is "immature"? Scalia has one of the biggest brains in America, and most journalists couldn't find their way out of a tunnel. Yet these retards are in a position to discuss Scalia's maturity. What arrogant assholes.

9 Scalia is scary intelligent and educated, the man is not someone to get into a battle of wits with. Every time he talks about law and the constitution I learn more, just amazing.

10 A one finger peace sign to the media (middle index finger of course).

11 The only thing wrong with Scalia is that he's 70 years old. I wish he was 50.

12 He actually looks pretty darn healthy for a septugenarian.

13 Actually Ace, he didn't say (or gesture, as it were) "Up Yours" or anything else of the sort. It's essentially "I don't give a damn". Sorry to see you're listening so intently to the libs. Ironic their cultural ignorance considering their propagation of the "multiculturalist" bullshit over the years...

14 So obscene gestures in CHURCH is now okay?

The ones most bothered by this gesture were fellow Catholics. It wasn't what he did, it was where he did it.

As if you care about the truth here.

15 Isn't it cute? A lefty moonbat pretending they are upset by something that happens in Church. They would be adorable if they didn't breed.

16 No kidding. Dude wouldn't survive a Catholic wedding much less the reception.

18 As if you care about the truth here. Bill Clinton did not have sexual relations with that woman! Al Gore took the initiative in creating the Internet! John Kerry was in Cambodia for Christmas! Michael Moore is a paragon of facts! Bush blew up the levees in New Orleans!

19 Oops, double post, sorry!

20 I love that gesture.

There are many times- when people bother me with trifling nonsense- that I wished I could use it.

Its not an obscene gesture- it means 'no' or 'I could care less' or 'don't bother me.' Basically, a dismissal.

But people think its obscene, because Americans only have a few universal gestures, and they're all obscene.

Pity.

22 Never use the "O-k" gesture in South America

23 did anyone notice the original question posed by this "reporter?" she was questioning scalia's impartiality b/c he attended a church service. in other words, sup ct. justices have to be atheists to be impartial on matters of church & state?

Posted by: anna at March 30, 2006 04:37 AM (qODvs)

24 Sure, her assumption was that being an atheist equals no religious tendencies and further that being part of an organized religion at least can ruin impartiality on the part of a judge.

Posted by: Canelone at March 30, 2006 05:44 AM (1Vbso)

25 Media don't believe one can be impartial because...well, they can't be so everyone else can't, right?

Posted by: Pixelflash at March 30, 2006 08:35 AM (O+1/6)

26 No, the reason the media doesn't believe that other people can be impartial is because other people disagree with them, and since what the media believes is TRUE the only way to disagree with them is if you are stupid or guilty of bias.

So the media perception is not that a member of an organized religion cannot be impartial, it is rather that people who are not impartial (i.e. those who disagree with the media) are frequently members of organized religion.
