    Reminds me of the story of the 7 year old boy who never uttered a word.. His parents did all they could to investigate his failure to speak but could not get a medical diagnosis. Then, one day at breakfast the boy said, "Oatmeal's cold."
    "Johnny! You can speak!"
    "Sure I can."
    "Well, why haven't you said anything before?"
    "The oatmeal was fine before."

    What? No comment about pubic hairs on coke cans? And here I thought he was dead the past few years and Scalia just propped him up so he could have two votes.

    The poor man was tricked into going to an Ivy League school where many students dream of attending but get rejected or can't afford to go? Then he was railroaded into a position on the Supreme Court? How long will this bullshit go on, brother?

    His other record is still going strong - it's been about 7 years since he has asked a question during SCOTUS sessions.

    @DARSB I guess i'm not too impressed with the supreme court. They are little more than pawns for the kings and queens and I definitely do not believe they should be appointed for life. 12 years max?

    @marine1 I kind of go back and forth on term limiting the Supremes. It would take a constitutional amendment, I believe, which isn't easy under any circumstances. When we have a brilliant Justice - Brandeis comes to mind, and I respected a lot of the Renquist decisions - you'd hate to see that talent leave the bench. When it's a lesser brain, though, like Justice Scalia (save your boos and hisses for later, please), it looks like term limits can't happen soon enough.

    No other Justice has adopted this "I have nothing to contribute" approach to serving on the court.

    I suspect Thomas knew he would look and sound like a fool if he opened his mouth and attempted to opine on weighty legal matters.

    On a side note, looking at Thomas' picture I can only imagine the kind of hate-filled slurs the right wing hate mongers would be hurling at him if he were a liberal, or even a moderate. Given the kinds of racist taunts Obama has endured it's a certainty Thomas would be subjected to even worse IF he was not a hardcore conservative.

    The workings of the bigoted mind are truly sonething to behold.

    Often the most intelligent and influential members of SCOTUS are the ones who are most quiet. Clarence Thomas is truly one of the greats...

    Having nothing to say, he doesn't say it.

    It's not that people wonder what he's thinking, they wonder if he is thinking.

    As far as I can tell, his mind is pretty much already made up on most issues.

    This is a great man. If he had been appointed by a Democrats president. He would have been the next savior. But he was nominated by a republican president so he is an "Uncle Tom". He doesn't say much so people always wonder what he is actually thinking.

    Clarence Thomas is a minimally qualified SC justice. In all of his years on the court he has done nothing to make himself stand out. He votes with the conservative side and hasn't written many opinions that people have found to be brilliant. It wouldn't matter if he had a liberal voting record. Thomas doesn't stand out on the court. This should not be taken as a dig at him because of all the people that have ever been citizens of the United States only 112 have ever been SC justices. It's still quite an accomplishment to be part of that elite club even if you don't stand out.

    @PNWest he doesn't need to stand out. They tried to dig anything up they could. When they could not find facts the made stuff up. You think he is not so great that is fine . I personally feel he is doing a great job.

    @scotta You are certainly entitled to your opinion. I am curious as to why you think he is doing a great job. Do you just agree with his opinions?

    @PNWest no I can honestly say no. I am so tired of hearing him blame everybody else for all the problems. It does not matter if the previous president or the opposing party. It is your watch you are the commander and chief. If things go bad you get blame. If things go good you get the glory.

    As a supreme court justice he is entitled to handle the job any way he sees fit. As he tells it the lawyers presenting cases before the SC are the best in the nation. Both sides are quite adept at presenting their points and countering their opponents. There really isn't much that needs to be asked. Although I disagree with most of his votes I find his logic for why he doesn't choose to speak often unassailable.

    I almost forgot, Clarence Thomas was called a 'house negro' by none other than Harry Belefonte...or 'Calypso Louie'. I do believe he is a Liberal. Uhmmmmmm???
