Comments: The Inverted World of Clarence Thomas

I remember those signs, up and down Hw301 in Florida. Ah, the memories, the "Good Ole Dayz". A judge with GENEROUS millionaire friends, some things never change

Don't you mean the Washington Generals, who always lost to the Harlem Globetrotters? The Wizards may be pathetic, but they do win once in awhile.

@CDT - Oh, yeah. A good demonstration of my knowledge of sports, that was. Thanks.

Clarence Thomas is cynical about everything but money and self-interest, so he's the perfect person to have been appointed with one of the most cynical lies ever--that he was the most qualified person to be on the Supreme Court.

Seriously, Thomas doesn't give a shit about Frederick Douglas, ideas, or much else. Scalia is hateful, but his cynicism is subordinate to his crazed right-wing ideology, which is with him much more genuine.

In specific places like the one you mention here, the toxins of power have corrupted the judicial branch of government too.

It is just that corruption is out of the closet walking the street big time because accountability went the way of the dinosaurs.

I think most people read the Bible in the mirror, or with the intellectual depth of a fourteen year old.

Dredd: EXACTLY.
