America really is in trouble when a member of its Supreme Court (the one conservatives site as "the smartest") cannot distinguish between television and reality. Justice Antonin Scalia delivered his views on the legality of torture by citing 24's Jack Bauer. Scalia stated, "Jack Bauer saved Los Angeles. He saved hundreds of thousands of lives...Are you going to convict Jack Bauer?" This is the smart one?! Jack Bauer is a fictional character dumb ass!
Right-wingers go absolutely apeshit if any judge anywhere makes a reference to European law in an opinion. I wonder why they have no objection to a judge citing a fictional television show as justification for his opinions.
