Was Justice Scalia engaging in a subtle act of protest at the inauguration?

Could be.
The twitterverse is alive with tweets about Justice Scalia’s headgear for today’s inauguration. At the risk of putting all the fun speculation to an end . . . The hat is a custom-made replica of the hat depicted in Holbein’s famous portrait of St. Thomas More. It was a gift from the St. Thomas More Society of Richmond, Virginia. We presented it to him in November 2010 as a memento of his participation in our 27th annual Red Mass and dinner.
Read the rest of Ed Driscoll's post for the evidence.

Of course, this would have been w-a-y too subtle for your typical Democrat...

Biden: "Har! Look at Scalia, boss. He's wearing a top hat, and it's upside down!"

Brilliant! This made my day.

My we be inspired to carry on, by the example of Saint Thomas More.

That mere fact that Justice Scalia drives the Proggs out of their freaking minds is enough to make me a fan. This is simply icing on the cake.
