Cruel and Unusual

[via ThinkProgress]
Antonin Scalia… defended torture on BBC radio, claiming that it’s “absurd” to say that the government “can’t stick something under the fingernails” of a suspect to get information. In Missouri last night, Scalia again said torture should be allowed. “It’s a bad thing to do,” said Scalia. “But not everything that is bad is unconstitutional.”

Supreme Court Justice and Conservative Paragon, Antonin Scalia, ladies and gentlemen.
