Justice Scalia and Harvey Birdman

I forgot an important part about the Federalist Society conference that occurred during the Q&A after Justice Scalia's speech. A law student asked Scalia if he saw the episode of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law that featured an appearance by everyone's favorite textualist. Apparently, that student was a friend of UW law blogger Law & Alcoholism, who was also in attendance (I'm sorry that I didn't get to meet him). It went down like this...
X: As a law student, I'd just like to thank you for writing all those great dissents. [audience laughs] Anyway, I have a two-part question. First, what do you think is the future of the Court's Commerce Clause and Fourteenth Amendment jurisprudence? And second, have you ever seen the show 'Harvey Birdman, Attorney-at-Law'”?

Scalia: Harvey Birdman?

X: Yeah, they featured you on it. You were rapping with Donald Rumsfeld.

Scalia: Well, I don't remember appearing on any show rapping.

X: It's a cartoon. You should get one of your clerks to TiVo it.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel even has a little more...
Asked about a comedy sketch featuring Scalia and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld performing a rap song, Scalia said he hadn't seen it:

"Who played me? Was he good-looking? Was he young? Maybe Leonardo di Caprio?"
If I have the time tomorrow, I'll take a screen shot of the Scalia appearance on Harvey Birdman off of one of my DVDs. The show is hilarious, by the way. It has also featured an appearance by the late Chief Justice. Someone should buy Scalia the DVD.
