Scalia's Political Dissent Draws Criticism from Cartoonists

Antonin Scalia may have gone too far this time. The conservative Supreme Court justice is being roundly criticized for a highly-political 22-page dissenting opinion on the court’s ruling on the Arizona immigration law.

Here are some cartoons about the sharp-tongued Scalia, including one I drew back in 2004 after he was criticized for going on a duck-hunting trip with Vice President Dick Cheney.
