Only Jack Bauer can save Antonin Scalia

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. What a lunatic:
Jack Bauer saved Los Angeles...he saved hundreds of thousands of lives...are you
going to convict Jack Bauer? Say that criminal law is against him? 'You
have the right to a jury trial?' Is any jury going to convict Jack Bauer? I
don't think so.

To be clear, Jack Bauer and all his torture tactics could not stop the nuclear explosion in Valencia, killing over 12,000 people.

More importantly, though, is this: 24 is a television show! It's not real!

What's more, the generals, among them U.S. Army brigadier-general Patrick Finnegan, are trying to educate the American people that it's not real:
The kids see it, and say, 'If torture is wrong, what about 24?' They should do a show where torture backfires.

I thought Bush told us to listen to the generals.

Forget the terrorism bit for a moment. If Supreme Court Justices can quote fictional television shows to make their point, what's next? Hey, while watching Cartoon Network, I saw this scene in one episode of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends...
