I hear Alito's more of a git-r-done man

Another story from December I wasn't around to blog about at the time: the New York Times article on the comic stylings of Supreme Court justices. This one part in particular.

On the other hand, in a January argument in a statute-of-limitations case, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy made an amusing observation about the absurdity of modern life.

"Recently I lost my luggage," Justice Kennedy said. "I had to go to the lost and found at the airline, and the lady said has my plane landed yet."

There you have it: a Supreme Court justice who thinks he's Bill Engvall and an (elitist!) New York Times writer who apparently doesn't recognize a Bill Engvall joke when he hears it. No wonder America is in such bad shape.

From what I hear, Scalito's more of a git-r-back-in-the-kitchen (or, if you like, git-r-out-of-Princeton) man.
