Wtf is Scalia doing giving an interview with Piers Morgan?— Greg Pollowitz (@GPollowitz) July 18, 2012
What in the world?! But, it’s true! U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is scheduled to be a guest tonight on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.”
Piers Morgan had teased it this morning.
The Twittersphere didn’t quite know what to do with this baffling information. Heads hurt!
Once the surreal news sunk in, people started thinking that it will be must-see television.
Of course, the usual suspects had to slam Justice Scalia.
Sigh. We are just surprised there have been no vile slurs or death wishes hurled yet again.
Oh, dear. Jeffrey “partisan hack” Toobin prepping. This should be good, if Piers followed Toobin’s hackish advice. Scalia will have him for dinner!
.@PiersMorgan is good at silly rhetorical mockery that sounds good but has no substance to it… Scalia will eat him alive.

See? That Twitter user agrees. If Piers’ history is any indication, Scalia could do this interview half asleep and still pin Piers to the intellectual mat. We wonder if Piers Morgan considers this interview “a battle,” like he did his interview with NRO’s Jonah Goldberg? No bias there!
No CNN-related news is complete without a snap at CNN’s erroneous reporting of the Supreme Court’s Obamacare decision.
Anyway, no hidden conspiracy theories here. Justice Scalia has written a book and, like most who write books, must hit the media to promote it.
Still, Twitter users are thankful for the invention of the DVR tonight!
Twitchy will, of course, have all the latest from the interview when it airs. Stay tuned!
