Excerpts from Justice Antonin Scalia's upcoming appearance on "60 Minutes" are beginning to dribble out. CBS News' own story on it, at cbsnews.com, starts with his admonition to "Get Over It," when asked about Bush v. Gore. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but Scalia has been using that line in numerous public appearances since at least 2006, according to a Westlaw search. Of course, saying it on the most-watched news show on television is noteworthy.
Asked how he can maintain friendships with the likes of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whom he has criticized in opinions, Scalia says, "I attack ideas, I don't attack people."
We suspect CBS is holding back some good stuff for the actual broadcast Sunday night. Check back here after the broadcast for an update on the segment, as well as other related new Scalia information.
