Scalia: 'Flipping a middle finger to his critics'

Not this finger, the middle one

AMERICAblog: Scalia just gave the finger in church yesterday (not kidding)

From UPI:

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia startled reporters in Boston just minutes after attending a mass, by flipping a middle finger to his critics.

A Boston Herald reporter asked the 70-year-old conservative Roman Catholic if he faces much questioning over impartiality when it comes to issues separating church and state.

"You know what I say to those people?" Scalia replied, making the obscene gesture and explaining "That's Sicilian."

The 20-year veteran of the high court was caught making the gesture by a photographer with The Pilot, the Archdiocese of Boston's newspaper.

"Don't publish that," Scalia told the photographer, the Herald said.

Right back at you, Antonin. I too swore an oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution; unlike you, I meant it.
