Justice Scalia set to address Tea Party Caucus on Capitol Hill
Ppsted om Raw Story

Washington (CNN) -- Justice Antonin Scalia, a popular and entertaining speaker at various forums around the world, has one of the busiest schedules off the bench. But a closed-door address the conservative justice is scheduled to give Monday afternoon has attracted controversy, partly because of who is sponsoring the event.

The Tea Party Caucus, an informal congressional body, had invited the 74-year-old to talk informally with legislators, the first in what leaders are billing as regular "conservative constitutional seminars."

The event was designed as a "teaching event" only for members of Congress, and no cameras or reporters would be allowed to cover it. Scalia's scheduled one-hour topic will be "separation of powers."

"It is a special privilege to have him address the first of what will be regular seminars featuring constitutional scholars," Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota, chairwoman of the Tea Party Caucus, said in December. "In his 24 years of service on the high court, Justice Scalia has distinguished himself by his 'originalist' approach to constitutional interpretation."

4. This ass should be restricted
to speaking at just such events. Even the Tea Party is too good for this fascist Third Reich wannabe.
