  1. James says:

    Kind of interesting how this unbiased, news-reporting organization only puts the party association next to the Republicans. What a worthless rag this is!

  2. Abused Serf says:

    Clearance Thomas is no more a great mind than Elena Kagan or Sonia Sotomayor. Black Panther Clearance Thomas is a racist at least that is what they call everyone else who is in a racial group that is not Hispanic, African, or Israeli. The Supreme Court now has three Israelis. The article does not go nearly far enough to expose the illegal perverted sexual appetite of our elected criminals or worse yet the real power structure behind the puppets.

    1. James Alan says:

      You are a liar and an !diot. “Black Panther” Clearance Thomas? Are You insane? Read his biography before You start spouting Your lies. By the way…he was accused, not convicted…based on no evidence!
      In Your Face!!

  3. nomoregore says:

    Snuffy’s right. Media hype doesn’t make the truth. Hill is a liar.

  4. Snuffy says:

    That the Anita Hill accusation was spurious and politically motivated against Justice Thomas is practically beyond doubt. The fact that she did not take the matter to court (and to a jury) also speaks volumes.
    This is a case of apples and oranges – this does not fit the “facts” (and confessions) of the other cases.

  5. Epiphany2 says:

    Lee should not have resigned over a shirtless photo Clinton had sex scandals before becoming President, lied about them, and continued the behavior when elected. Many others did the same. So what is the big deal over Lee? The majority doesn’t seem to care one way or the other.

    1. Bucksergeant says:

      It is only a crime?newsworthy if a republican does/did it

      1. Hip2b2 says:

        Bucksergent;

        Are we reading the same article (or even living on the same planet)? How many of the people identified in the slide show have to be Democrats before you notice? All of them?
