This Week: "Legislative Soul Search!" 
Two-Fisted Tales of the Justice of ACTION -- NOT Activism 
Judge Scalia arrives as the Justices discuss a case - CRASH
Judge #1: Maybe we should look at the history of how the law was passed...
Judge Scalia: Fool! Legislative history has no place in judicial review! We interpret the WORDS of the STATUTE! 
Judge: B-but we're deciding whether to strike down the Voting Rights Act! 
Judge Scalia: Ah, a "racial entitlement"? That's totally different! 
Judge: So we SHOULD review the debates and writings of Congress? 
Judge Scalia: More than THAT, you buffoon! The process has begun. 
The ethereal form of Judge Scalia leaves his body and goes on an excursion into the psychic dimension. 
H enters the very souls of those senators who voted 98-0  to renew the Voting Rights Act in 2006. 
Judge: He's BACK!
Judge Scalia: We must strike down the Voting Rights Act! Congress only renewed it because they feared voter fallout if they opposed it! 
Judge: So the political process was POLITICS? 
Judge Scalia: Precisely! And THAT'S when the court must step in and right that wrong! 
JUDGE SCALIA on JUDGING: What is the Supreme Court's role if not to protect the minority? 
Of course, by "minority," I mean that minority of states with histories of voter suppression.
