“Well, there--see, he did not provide good counsel.”— Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' only words during the oral arguments in nearly seven years. Justice Thomas was joking about a Harvard-educated counsel representing the murder suspect Jonathan Boyer; Justice Thomas' alma mater is Yale. The words were spoken last week, but the transcript was published yesterday.
@MrObvious Thomas isn't a good SC justice because he's conservative. He just isn't good.
@sacredh is that a "ape" reference? you racist pig
People like Thomas starts a little lower before they reach the evolved status. It was more a AI reference since most of his action seems like a robotic reaction to the needs of the rest of the rightwingers on the supreme court. I don't think anyone talk about Thomas as the great legal mind of the court.
