Originalism to the rescue, Scalia-style

Justice Antonin Scalia, in an interview with the BBC news service, believes that it would be crazy . . . just crazy to assume that the Eighth Amendment's ban on cruel and unusual punishment extens to "so-called" torture in times of imminent threat or even just "knocking someone around" if doing so would produce information to stop a terrorist attack.

Makes you wanna slap Scalia upside the head.
