Scalia acts like a elitist cry baby again

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia resents a 20 year old asking him to be consistent.

WEST PALM BEACH - In a room filled with some of Palm Beach County's most powerful people, it took a 20-year-old political science student to throw off U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Tuesday afternoon. Student Sarah Jeck stood in front of 750 people and asked Scalia why cameras are not allowed in the U.S. Supreme Court even though the court hearings are open, transcripts are available and the court's justices are open enough to go "out on book tours." Scalia was at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in part to do a book signing and wasn't happy at the question. "Read the next question," Scalia replied. "That's a nasty, impolite question."
