Teh Conspiracy Crazies Come Out After Scalia's Death

And there ain't none crazier than Michael Savage:
With confirmation that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead Saturday morning with a pillow over his head and his clothes unwrinkled, nationally syndicated talk-radio host Michael Savage called for an investigation on the level of the presidentially appointed probe into President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963.

“Was [Scalia] murdered?” Savage asked his listeners.

“We need a Warren Commission-like federal investigation,” he said. “This is serious business.”
And then a little sanity from the Washington Post:
It then took hours for authorities in remote West Texas to find a justice of the peace, officials said Sunday. When they did, Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara pronounced Scalia dead of natural causes without seeing the body — which is permissible under Texas law — and without ordering an autopsy.

As official Washington tried to process what his demise means for politics and the law, some details of Scalia’s final hours remained opaque. As late as Sunday afternoon, for example, there were conflicting reports about whether an autopsy should have been performed. A manager at the El Paso funeral home where Scalia’s body was taken said that his family made it clear they did not want one. [Emphases added.]
And:
Meanwhile, Guevara acknowledged that she pronounced Scalia dead by phone, without seeing his body. Instead, she spoke to law enforcement officials at the scene — who assured her “there were no signs of foul play” — and Scalia’s physician in Washington, who said that the 79-year-old justice suffered from a host of chronic conditions.
And so on.

But let's get back to teh crazies.  Think of what they're wanting you to ponder.  That an 79 year old man with chronic health conditions (high blood pressure among them) was murdered and that the local law enforcement authorities as well as his family (who didn't want an autopsy) covered it up.  All this to further a liberal agenda or to derail a conservative one.

And it all took place in Texas.

That's what they want you to believe - that in reddest of red state Texas, there's a conspiracy to cover up the murder of a conservative Supreme Court Justice.

Teh Crazies are crazy.
