My friends will recognize the clever reference in the title.
My enemies will say something typically stupid, like, "You don't run for the Supreme Court."
But the truth of the matter is, I'm a pretty nice guy. Sure, reporters call me Scalito and all that, but I'm not some kind of demagogue. I have even been called charming. And I guess I'm sorry for the "Photoship" stuff with Mike. I was just kidding around.
Truth be told, I think it's appropriate posting about a bitter fable about how success turns a sweet kid into a loathable prick is appropriate, given rumors that I, in fact, won't be nominated to the Supreme Court Monday.
I suppose if it's Mike, it's Mike. I, at least, won't look back on my life and regret how I behaved.
