Those who are still capable of feeling some slight degree of outrage over the open criminal behavior of a Supreme Court Justice (which I mentioned in an earlier post) and the willingness of the media to just ignore it, may like to read this excellent treatment of the issue at Brad Blog.
During the time this man was engaging in his deliberate criminality, he participated in saddling the nation with George W. Bush as president, and in turning our elections over to corporations and foreign governments. If Clarence Thomas were a Democrat, he would already have been driven from the court and sent to hell. But he's a Republican. He's not expected to be any more than a crook, so it's all okay.
