Posts tagged ‘500 page dissenting opinion’
Many Americans were very surprised when they heard that Supreme Court Justice Clarence (UnkaThom) Thomas had submitted a 500 page dissenting opinion on the recent vote on the so-called ObamaCare plan for medical insurance reform.
Less surprising was that what he submitted was completely in keeping with his long term history of contributing nothing to any case before the court, it was actually a 500 page unopened pack of printer paper, and it should be noted, one which still had the original Big Lots price tag firmly attached to it.
So what we can surmise from this is that the writing ability of Justice Thomas is at least equal to his well documented speaking skills that he has displayed on a number of cases that have appeared before the court. By the way, that number of cases mentioned in the previous sentence is often expressed as ”none”.
It seems he’s following the dictum often attributed to Abraham Lincoln, which said something like “It’s better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you a fool than open your mouth and prove it”.
Or, maybe that’s what his wife Virginia (Scary Spice) Thomas told him to be sure that she wouldn’t have her company “Liberty Consulting” lose the contacts she’s made from many of her high paying jobs that she’s performed as a lobbyist?
All this from a guy that once used “But really now, any fool can see that she’s black!” as his main defense against Anita Hill’s sexual harassment charges.
