Meanwhile, in other "ignored stories"

Of unreported income and defeating of all notions of judicial independence...

As for the relationship between the Tea Party and the Republican establishment, Virginia Thomas suggested that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) should be doing more to embrace the conservative movement.

Thomas said that she hopes "the most conservative candidate" will emerge victorious in the GOP presidential primary race in 2012.

Wonder how much money ol' Virginia got paid for this interview and when it will get reported on Clarance's disclosure forms? At his current rate 2025.

Because if there's one thing Clarence Thomas doesn't know, it's the law.

And now back to weiner jokes.

If Uncle Clarence didn't have Scalia and a raft of law clerks, he'd be lost in space.

His notion of the law is "whatever the rich and powerful want."

Scalia & the law clerks may put the ideas in Clarence's head but Ginny is the one who decides if they can stay there.

I read earlier today that Citizens United has played a greater role in Clarence Thomas' career than most people remember (including me).

It was the then newly-formed Citizens United that spent $100,000 on ads attacking Judiciary Committee members critical of Thomas' record and qualifications during his nomination hearings. Which, in a better world, would have been enough for a Supreme Court justice to recuse himself from the recent case.

Not Uncle Clarence, though.
