Having failed to destroy Clarence Thomas 32 years ago with preposterous sexual harassment charges (disbelieved at the time by 60% of Americans), now the left is resorting to attacking the ethics of a man vastly more honorable than the collection of degenerates reviling him.
The sole purpose of the medias sudden fixation on the Supreme Courts ethics is to morally intimidate conservative justices by reminding them that the left controls the culture. Since they lost abortion, liberals have been in a panic that the court will junk other liberal sacraments, like gay marriage and affirmative action, too. Thats the reason for the stream of calumnies directed at the justices.
As usual, the main target of the lefts rage is Thomas. Were supposed to be appalled that Thomas billionaire friend Harlan Crow took the justice and his wife on a vacation that (the media claim) would have cost Thomas more than $500,000!!!
I would wager that most people would prefer ceaseless public praise to a cruise, no matter how nice the yacht. Well, yeah, but Thomas and his wife, Ginny, werent going alone. They hadnt just won a cruise sweepstakes. They were joining Crow on a vacation he was taking anyway. Cost to donor: a few extra chicken cutlets and string beans.
Crow sounds like a great guy, but when youre going on vacation with a benefactor, it isnt like hes handing you an expensive bauble. You are the expensive bauble.
We went on a cruise on my private yacht in Indonesia and served Jeroboam of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945. [Meh.]
We went on a cruise on my private yacht in Indonesia and Justice Clarence Thomas was our guest. WINNER!!!!
Cui bono? Everybody!
The media want us to believe that generosity from personal friends is an ethical issue, but thats because thats not how liberals bribe government officials. They bombard their targets with the sort of public adoration that money cant buy or the sort of public hate that money cant block. Your choice: Be beloved from every corner of society or be subjected to nonstop ridicule.
