To repeat what I put in one of the redlighted threads: Look up Thomas's questions from  Virginia v. Black and his dissent in the opinion. As much as I dislike his philosophy and his deep desire to toss stare decisis in the trash in regard to the Commerce Clause, the man was the  only justice to get that decision correct. "A child might want to burn a cross to honor his departed pet" my ass - at the very least the law was constitutional as applied.

Scalia was just practicing his ventriloquism

Somebody needs to sent Justice Thomas a joke book so his next one is actually funny.
 
2013-01-14 05:57:04 PM  
I am not impressed, as Justice Scalia was not observed drinking a glass of water at the time.
 
2013-01-14 06:18:43 PM  
At least he didn't talk about the actual law.  I'd have been actually scared then.

"I think it's an opportunity for the advocate, the lawyers, to fill in the blanks, to make their case," Thomas said in a 2009 interview with C-SPAN for a series about life on the court. "I think you should allow people to complete their answers and their thought, and to continue their conversation. I find that coherence that you get from a conversation far more helpful than the rapid-fire questions."

Because heaven forbid an advocate get a chance to try and change someone's mind.

The man is an embarrassment to the court. That he is Thurgood Marshall's replacement is an even greater travesty.

If America wanted a non entity as a Supreme Court Justice, instead of Clarence Thomas, Bush could have nominated a two by four.

He's a huge and disgusting disgrace to the SCOTUS and its history and integrity.

He should be forced out due to his wife's conflicts of interest and his failure to disclose them and to then recuse himself.

He's lower than whale shiat IMO.

They say he sleeps during proceedings and his clerks do all his work.

I heard that he was arrested trying to steal a Super Sucker from Spencer Gifts, in the mall.

This one is true - apparently he frequents an adult bookstore near the courthouse and his regular visits is a major reason why the place stays in the black (no pun intended).

I hear he likes to rent a lot of pron, but there's a law against releasing that info, for some reason.

I think he's just been sleeping while wearing those "open eyes" glasses the whole time.

Why would he nominate some nobody 2x4 when everyone already loves Inanimate Carbon Rod?

Burning a cross should be prima facie evidence that such burning was an attempt to intimidate? Not the location of the burning, but that it was done at all?

If the KKK wants to get together and burn a cross on a member's farm, that is evidence unto itself that they were trying to intimidate someone? That just doesn't make any sense.

Maybe the reason he could not get a job after law school is because he came off to everyone as already bitter and disdainful to those people and institutions that helped him get his law degree. Someone with that much baggage right out of college would not come off as a good hire, especially in a field where relationships are paramount.

Thus, it was the effect not the cause of his hatred for affirmative action and his hatred of other people in general. Just a thought.

If you knew anything about the court you would know that its Thomas who influences Scalia more - not the other way around.

The only bigger embarrassment in the SCOTUS than Thomas is Scalia.

My friends and I played a game the other day: What chemical element would one pick to represent each member of the SCOTUS? Only general agreement was Osmium for Scalia. But Lead was popular for Thomas, too.

Did he tell the story about the man from Nantucket?

The difference between a fool and a wise fool is that the wise fool does not speak, and it appears from the article that Sotomayer can't shut her trap.

Agreed. Cross burning is reprehensible because of the history it represents, but the act of burning a cross is not in and of itself an act of intimidation any more than an off-color rape joke is incitement.
