I have never been impressed with Scalia's thought process. He seems to be the least impartial of all the Supremes.

I'm not sure it's even possible to "impeach" a supreme though... What would even happen if one of them became demented for some reason. Is there a legal recourse in place for removing Supreme Court judges from the bench?

Scalia's screed is old news. He's certainly wacky, but I don't think that's an impeachable offense.

rosborne: A supreme court justice can be removed from office by means of impeachment, just like a president or any other civil officer of the United States (Article II, section 4 of the Constitution). Only one supreme court justice has ever been impeached: Samuel Chase. He was not convicted by the Senate. In addition to Chase, eleven federal court judges have been impeached.

Impeach the jerk.
US Justice Scalia gets Cheney case recusal request


WASHINGTON, March 1 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court said on Monday it referred to Justice Antonin Scalia a request that he remove himself from a case about Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force because their recent duck-hunting trip raised questions about his impartiality.

The Sierra Club environmental group, which sued Cheney for the task force papers, filed a motion last week asking that Scalia disqualify himself from the case because the January trip had created "an appearance of impropriety." It said Scalia's removal would "restore public confidence in the integrity of our nation's highest court."

The justices said in a brief order, "In accordance with its historic practice, the court refers the motion to recuse in this case to Justice Scalia." It was not clear when Scalia would respond to the request. He has defended his decision to go on the trip and said his impartiality could not be reasonably questioned.

According to the motion, Scalia and his daughter were Cheney's guests on Air Force Two on a Jan. 5 flight to Louisiana. Cheney and Scalia were guests of the president of an energy services company on a duck-hunting vacation.

*The taxpayers pay for the airplane rides. VP Cheney should pay us the money back. He can afford it. I read that he has $$$Millions.
