Scalia: Constitution is Dead

Alright, so he didn't say those exact words, but how else am I suppose to interpret this load of crap?
People who believe the Constitution would break if it didn't change with society are "idiots," U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says.


Scalia criticized those who believe in what he called the "living Constitution."

"That's the argument of flexibility and it goes something like this: The Constitution is over 200 years old and societies change. It has to change with society, like a living organism, or it will become brittle and break."

"But you would have to be an idiot to believe that," Scalia said. "The Constitution is not a living organism, it is a legal document. It says something and doesn't say other things."

Doesn't it make you proud to hear one of the top judges in this country speak like that? Either Scalia's a blunt guy or he's just jealous that Cheney went hunting without him this past weekend.
