ARTHUR SILBER thinks Justice Scalia is really Rick Santorum:

SANTORUM=SCALIA??!!: I think they’re the same person. Santorum said:

“If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual (gay) sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything,” Santorum, R-Pa., said in the interview, published Monday.

And in his dissent, Scalia says:

State laws against bigamy, same-sex marriage, adult incest, prostitution, masturbation, adultery, fornication, bestiality, and obscenity are likewise sustainable only in light of Bowers’ validation of laws based on moral choices. Every single one of these laws is called into question by today’s decision; the Court makes no effort to cabin the scope of its decision to exclude them from its holding.

Has anyone ever seen them together at the same time?

But James Taranto thinks Scalia is really Jerry Seinfeld:

Scalia Imitates Seinfeld

” ‘The court has taken sides in the culture war,’ Scalia said, adding that he has ‘nothing against homosexuals.’ “–CNN.com, June 26, 2003

“We’re not gay! Not that there’s anything wrong with that . . .”–Jerry Seinfeld, “Seinfeld,” Feb. 11 1993

He looks a bit like George Costanza. But only a bit.
