Nothing tops the Aretha Franklin hat.

Nothing.

If I had any kind of photoshop skills, this post would consist of a pic of Scalia wearing a Futurama brain slug.

Headline made me think of this vid
Scalia's hat. Why's it weird?

Needlessly contrarian, dripping with sarcasm and bile, dressing in pretentious retro irony .... he's such a hipster.

I think we wore the same hat/something really similar when I graduated from law school. I was more curious about Breyer's weird hat

Is Scalia in his chamber robes or is that some kind of Edwardian cloak. My god, Scalia is going STEAMPUNK!

I'm a libby lib and can't stand Scalia, so I hate to defend him here, but I've read that the hat was presented to him by the St. Thomas Moore Society of Richmond VA, and it's a recreation of the one worn by Moore in the famous painting by Holbein. Kinda cool in an intellectual way.

Or he could've worn a hat with a pom-pom on top and a sports team's logo emblazoned on it. Maybe Claire McCaskill would've found that more acceptable.

But Archbishop of Canterbury works, too.

Where do you even get one of those?

THX 1138: defend him here


Defend him? It's a weird hat. It's OK to wear a weird hat. It's not an attack on his character to say he wore a weird hat.

THX 1138: it's a recreation of the one worn by Moore in the famous painting by Holbein


Yup, weird hat. That's a weird hat.

For once I will defend Scalia. It's crazy to be bareheaded in the cold.

Tony, it's okay to like boys. Just come out here in the light and shake your bulbous ass in front of the young men. Stop denying and start trying.

/Repression is just another word for fascism, Tony. And you don't want to be a fascist, do you?

Here we are on this important day, in the capitol of our country, surrounded by the people who shape and define our society at the most fundamental level. Tens of thousands have turned out to celebrate the grand experiment that is American representative democracy (easy there, pedants). The world pauses to watch another moment in history unfold with dignity and tradition worthy of the world's most powerful and influential nation. We should take the time to honor those who have given so much to provide us with the remarkable standard of living we enjoy and contemplate the future that we can build together. Our leaders, duly elected to serve their fellow citizens with wisdom and benevolence, are in attendance to show their respect for the traditions and inner machinations of our great republic, and to salute our country for its unwavering commitment to making the world a better place for all.

Ooooh, look, funny hats!

I know. It should have been "courts" and "judges" instead of "people". I blew it. My iced tea and cold pizza were fighting each other somewhere along my intestinal tract. Dammit.

That skullcap is actually part of the outfit Supreme Court justices wear.

Or Cambridge or Oxford. When I was in college, we had one professor with a degree from Cambridge. At graduation time, when all the other professors wore mortarboards, he rocked a red velvet version of the hat Scalia wears. And a multi-colored cowl.

Hats were certainly called for, but that particular hat was an odd choice. I wore a nice gray fedora, and I was just a speck in the crowd, not on national television.

FTFA Spotty cellular service at the Capitol prevented McCaskill's tweets from going live in real time.

And not a single fark was given.

Take it down a notch, Claire. Your approval ratings in MO are abysmal, you were lucky as hell your opponent was a pro-rape teahadist and you were wearing ridiculous full length mink that was just as noticeable as Professor Scalia's velveteen headgear.

Very true. It didn't seem like a proper inauguration without that hat there.

It would have been pretty cool for Obama to go super-old-school if he had sported a top hat.

So his outfit was a Ren-Faire style cos-play of the last known honest lawyer?  Eh. I'll allow it, still less weird than the Reinquist robes  styled after a Mikado  costume

Yeah, but she's there for 6 more years, whether you like it or not. Her polling now doesn't matter, her polling in 2017 and 2018 is what's gonna count.

It's almost like that's by design.
