It had nothing to do with it” – it was dissenting Justice Antonin Scalia who Colbert singled out to invite on to his show when it debuts in the fall. That’s because Scalia had written that if he ever joined an opinion that started as had the one written by Justice Kennedy in his decision, “I would hide my head in a bag.”
