I was at the ISI dinner — at the NR table — last night. I saw the speech people are complaining about (highlighted on Drudge). It was an awesome speech. It was the second scalia speech I’ve heard at a rubber chicken type dinner (though the food last night was really quite good) and each time Scalia has actually offered a substantial but entertaining talk. I doubt even supporters of the Lawrence decision would have objected much to the context of his remarks. One can disagree with his jurisprudence — I don’t — but he’s immune to the charge of inconsistency or intellectual dishonesty.
