50 Shades of Scalia

That's the title of new online-only op-ed by Tim Egan up on the NYT site tonight, as he rips Scalia's media tour and continuing defense of Citizens United decision the rich owning more "speech" than others.  And then: "You can see this imbalance at work in the person of Sheldon Adelson, the orange-haired, creepy-voiced casino magnate who has promised to contribute up to $100 million to super PACS to knock out President Obama. If you wonder why Mitt Romney was reduced to a pandering stooge in Israel a few days ago, you can blame the traveling companion who held the candidate’s leash — Adelson.
Adelson brings to mind the John Huston character in the movie Chinatown.”
