Scalia pulled a good one at the inauguration



Kevin Walsh of the University of Richmond School of Law writes:

The twitterverse is alive with tweets about Justice Scalia’s headgear for today’s inauguration. At the risk of putting all the fun speculation to an end . . . The hat is a custom-made replica of the hat depicted in Holbein’s famous portrait of St. Thomas More. It was a gift from the St. Thomas More Society of Richmond, Virginia. We presented it to him in November 2010 as a memento of his participation in our 27th annual Red Mass and dinner.
Wearing the cap of a statesman who defended liberty of church and integrity of Christian conscience to the inauguration of a president whose policies have imperiled both: Make of it what you will.


  1. Kinda funny, FNC showed the picture, I start explaing to my wife thehistory of that type of hat and maybe the reason he wore it, and the great O'Reilly is laughin and do the I am so smart guffaw cause that hat is so silly.

    He completely missed the possible message, but what can one expect from someone who said an AK15 and M47?

    I read this to the wife and she now thinks I might know my ass from a hole in the ground, till she sleeps on it then things will go back to normal.

  5. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  6. When I saw that hat on Scalia the first thought was that its a message to the PTB that Obamacare is violating the conscience clause and there will be hell to pay at court. It seems all the draft dodgers created their own conscience clause by heading to Canada in the 60's and waiting for Carter to bail out their dodging asses. And how many used the conscience clause to avoid combat? Suddenly they have memory loss and see no reason those of faith should be mandated to pay for contraception and abortion against their beliefs.
