Maddow: Scalia "Like The Guy On Your Blog Comment Thread Who Is Using The N-Word"

Rachel Maddow opines on Justice Scalia calling a part of the Voting Rights Act a "racial entitlement" on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

RACHEL MADDOW: It's a racial entitlement now, voting is a racial entitlement -- something that you are entitled to on the basis of your race. Wait a second, do you know how that sounds? But I think he does know how that sounds and that's the neat thing about being there in person is you can see, actually he’s a troll. He’s saying this for effect. He knows it’s offensive and he knows he’s going to get a gasp from the courtroom, which he got, and he loves it. He’s like the guy on your blog comment thread who is using the n-word. 'Oh, it made you mad? How about if I say this? Does it make you mad? Did it make you mad? Did it make you mad?’ He's that guy! He's that kind of guy! When we're all shocked that he said something so blatantly racially offensive while talking about the cornerstone of the federal Civil Rights Act, he's thinking, 'Oh yeah!'
