Nino to the world:


Conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Wednesday called his 2004 decision not to recuse himself from a case involving his friend Vice President Dick Cheney the "proudest thing" he's done on the court.

. . .

Scalia refused to recuse himself from the case, rejecting arguments by critics who said his impartiality was brought into question because of a hunting vacation that he took with Cheney while the court was considering the vice president's appeal.
"For Pete's sake, if you can't trust your Supreme Court justice more than that, get a life," he said Wednesday.

"Vaffanculo for not trusting me!"

Not exactly what I'd want as my career highlight.
