(NEW YORK POST) – Congenitally offended campus lefties finally lost one: The law school at George Mason University has been renamed for the late, great Justice Antonin Scalia.
The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia this week unanimously declined to block the renaming, ignoring the protests of Democratic politicians and the George Mason Faculty Senate, which passed a resolution opposing the new name.
But the Law School faculty actually supported it – since the new name is linked to $30 million in donations for scholarships, a dozen added faculty and new facilities.

The petty professors over on the main campus couldn't see past their cartoonish, lefty views of Scalia. They'd have done better to heed the words of his impeccably liberal fellow justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
"Justice Scalia was a law teacher, public servant, legal commentator and jurist nonpareil. ... I miss his bright company and the stimulus he provided, his opinions ever challenging me to meet his best efforts with my own. It is a tribute altogether fitting that George Mason University's law school will bear his name. May the funds ... aid the Antonin Scalia School of Law to achieve the excellence characteristic of Justice Scalia, grand master in life and law."
