"The issue is not whether the decision should have been decided in the Florida or U.S. supreme courts, but that the Constitution had been violated. ... The only decision was to put an end to it after three weeks and looking like fools to the rest of the world. It was too much of a mess." said Justice Antonin Scalia.
There is an old addage that says it's better to keep one's mouth shut and let people think you a fool than open your mouth and prove it. Thanks to Justice Scalia for collectively proving to the world what they only thought until then.
