The leading conspiracy theory about Antonin Scalia’s death: Obama did it.


The Supreme Court justice died in his sleep on Saturday at a luxury resort in West Texas, putting the Court’s conservative majority at risk. If President Obama’s eventual nominee somehow gets confirmed this year, which is no sure thing, the court will have five Democrat-appointed justices to the four picked by Republican presidents. So of course some paranoid people on Twitter smell foul play.
