This was a delight to see.
I didn't watch any of the inauguration, but saw this at this link.
Apparently Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia had a point to make, and I agree with it. The hat is a replica of Thomas More's, the 15th century martyr who made a silent, conscientious objection to King Henry VIII's intrusion into the church's sphere of authority. Obama likewise is diminishing religious liberty with his health care law, forcing business owners to provide some abortive or abortifacient services in their health insurance. This has resulted in Hobby Lobby's multi-million dollar fines, among other court cases.
This statement was a rarity in our political environment: polite yet pointed, colorful but refined, sophisticated yet sassy.
Hats off to Justice Scalia.
