"Antonin Scalia? Did he work in the White House kitchen?" asked George W. Bush, who shrugged.
Bush continued, "Pretty sure that's the guy I had fired from the kitchen. No buena comida."
Various members of the press tried to describe Justice Antonin Scalia to Bush.
"Oh, you mean that guy who gave me the presidency in 2000," replied Bush.
"Can you imagine America if I had not been president?" asked Bush.
No one commented on the reference to the Bush v. Gore case.
"Fortunately, Scalia helped America with that," said Bush.
Gore remained in awe of Scalia's "strict constructionism."
