Scalia was an original but not an originalist. Dukakis noted Scalia made shit up as noted below:

What was originalist about Bush v. Gore? What was originalist about the Second Amendment decision? What was originalist about Citizens United for God’s sake, Isaac? We have been regulating campaign contributions since the late 19th century. Where in the Constitution does it say that money is speech? Originalism? Are you kidding me? But in any event, if you believe that, then the president has a solemn responsibility to make a nomination and the Senate has a solemn responsibility to consider it seriously, right?

That was always a load of shit. Helen Gurley Brown wrote a book with that very title more than 30 years ago.

She didn't have "it all," either. She never had children, and, unlike the spoiled Ivy League trust fund brats, she worked her way up from the secretary pool after attending a no-name business school.

A not "having it all" article is just another bunch of shit trying to con the rest of us to take pity on people who deserve none.
