Duck And Cover: Cheney And Scalia’s Conflict Of Interest

If a powerful litigant in a conflict-of-interest case (i.e. Vice President Cheney) engages a powerful judge about to hear that case (Justice Scalia) to go duck hunting, isn’t that a conflict-of-interest?

As the Justice points out, going hunting with Cheney doesn’t violate the letter of the law.

The problem is, when you’re that arrogant, you think people don’t see you as a duck when–right out in the open– you look, walk and quack like one.
