Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Watches ‘Duck Dynasty’

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Watches

Duck Dynasty” may not be the most highbrow show on TV, but the beloved bearded hunters have attracted one fan of major political standing: Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

In his lengthy new Q&A with New York Magazine, the conservative icon touched on plenty of serious topics, including gay rights, the media and even his belief in the Devil, but his pop culture diet? Not so serious, as he admitted to watching at least one episode of the hit A&E reality series.

“I don’t watch it regularly, but I’m a hunter,” he told the magazine. “I use duck calls.”

He explained that his interest in hunting came from his grandfather, who used to take him out to the Long Island woods to shoot rabbits. Aside from the common interest of hunting, it was word of mouth that got him to tune in.

“So many people said ‘Oh, it’s a great show’ that I thought I’d better look at it,” he said.

However, the show is hardly his first TV love. Given his New York background, his love for “Seinfeld” is hardly surprising.

“I loved ‘Seinfeld,'” he went on. “In fact, I got some CDs of ‘Seinfeld.’ ‘Seinfeld’ was hilarious. Oh, boy. The Nazi soup kitchen? No soup for you!”

Although he had never heard of “Homeland,” he also said he’s watched some intellectual shows, including “The Sopranos” and a couple of episodes of “Mad Men.”

“Duck Dynasty,” currently airing in its fourth season, has drawn in other celebrity fans as well, including Andrew Lincoln of “The Walking Dead” and Dakota Fanning.

  1. how fitting. Birds of a feather, do indeed, flock together. A perfect example of Dumb and Dumber, Bigot, and more bigoted, as well as idiot and more idiotic. Unfortunately, this isn’t some humorous diatribe. This is a sad but true commentary on a member of our nation’s Supreme Court. This man has distinguished himself as one of the most prejudiced, myopic and downright idiotic individuals to ever sit on our nation’s high court. Just disgusting. It was once said that at a party, Anton Scalia made a toast, singing, “I wish I was an Oscar Myer Wiener”…Well there is one instance that I believe Mr. Scalia is spot on. He surely is a wiener …
