Why is Clarence Thomas supporting Rush Limbaugh by appearing on his show after Rush said troops are "phonies"?
Yep, Clarence Thomas will stop giving America the silent treatment, and go on Rush Limbaugh Monday. Even Bush flak Dana Perino is condemning Limbaugh for calling serving soldiers "phonies", so why is a sitting
Supreme Bush Court "Justice" rushing to support Limbaugh in his hour of need?
It's almost enough to give the impression that Thomas is a political justice, just like Petraeus is a political general, and Gonzales was a political attorney general. Odd. Or not. As I've been saying:
Scalia et al have long wanted to impose their jurisprudence on the country. But they didn’t have the votes on the Court to get that done. They knew they’d only get get the votes with a Republican President. So they wrote Bush v. Gore with that outcome in mind. (Which is why they were careful to make it a “good for one time only” decision. Wouldn’t want to make the case a precedent, in case a Democrat ever wanted to use it.)
And so they got what they wanted: They selected Bush, and in due course Bush put Roberts and Scalito on the Court.
But Roberts and Scalito on the court wouldn’t have happened without Bush v. Gore to begin with.
To me, that means we don’t have a Supreme Court. We have a Bush Court. And every decision they’ve made since Bush’s first nominee, Roberts, was installed, is fruit of the poisonous tree that was Bush v. Gore, and hence illegitimate.
Sadly, when Thomas furthers Big Pharma's grotesquely Conservative buffoonery--sorry for the redundancy--he only reinforces the view the Court is yet another aspect of government that the Bush regime has trashed and delegitimized.
