Scalia is awesome, trolled the nation

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.

That is one funny arse hat

Good to see Scalia rocking fine fashion from the 1500s

When I saw it, reminded me of the Seinfeld where George got the big hat and left it at that chick's house

The hat hearkens back to an era when such things defined the person underneath it and his status in the world.

that isnt trolling, that is called being a disrespectful douche. Something scalia is quite eager and able to do.

As a student of history, I think we should have as little of this as possible. I really don't feel like repeating the dark ages.

I love the fact that Scalia gets under the skin of progressives and 'moderates' in this country.

he doesn't get under my skin, I just think he is douchetastic.

Much like the current president, I do not believe he carries himself in accordance to his office.

Scalia is not a disrespectful douche why in the hell does one person always have to ruin a fun thread?

Where is Ruth Bader? I won't call her an ugly old bat.
