I got yer dignity for ya right here . . . .

(Via HuffPo)
WASHINGTON -- While his colleagues got ready to go to the Capitol, Justice Antonin Scalia sat on a stage across town and held forth about why, for the 16th consecutive year, he would not be joining them for the State of the Union. 
He doesn't go when a Democrat is president. He stays away when the president is Republican. 
"It has turned into a childish spectacle. I don't want to be there to lend dignity to it," Scalia said, with a certain amount of mischief.
For Scalia to think his presence at anything lends "dignity" to it is the height of hubris. I just wish he'd stay away from anything to do with government, starting with the Supreme Court.

If you look up "childish spectacle" in the dictionary, there's a picture of Antonin . . . .
