Lean Left >> The Gander Declines to Say What's Good For the Goose: "Asking that question was, in fact, a brilliant piece of lawyering. Scalia's refusal to engage the issue demonstrates the bankruptcy of his attempts to put his personal phobias on a rational footing - while his claim of privileged stature as immunity from any social opprobrium attached (by him!) to 'sodomy' underscores the basic inequity at the heart of these laws.
