The panic over the possible demise of Obamacare following the Supreme Court’s rulings in the several cases next week is beginning to show. Big time. There’s a thread going around the left-half plane of the blogosphere that Justice Thomas should have recused himself from the Obamacare cases because his wife is a lawyer/lobbyist who has lobbied against the law. These same sites, BTW, don’t think that Justice Kagan should have recused herself even though she was a part of the Obama Administration while the laws were being drafted.
Elizabeth Flock has a somewhat straightforward report at U. S. News. Stranded Wind (aka, Neal Rauhauser) posted about Mrs. Thomas’ lobbying over at the Daily Kos about a year ago. He used the post to suggest than Justice Thomas’ vote in Citizens United was influenced by the possibility of his wife benefiting from the decision. He complains that mainline Democrats aren’t taking the fight seriously.
What does make sense is the work Velvet Revolution is doing. Fight the GOP on their own terms? Hell, no! How about their Protect Our Elections campaign? And look at what’s on the front page …
But you had all damn well better get over and donate to Velvet Revolution today.
Send $5 now and if they really can set the Department of Justice on Ginny Thomas it’ll save you $500 in donations in 2012.
The Velveeta Revolution hasn’t been too successful in its opposition to Justice Thomas. After Aaron Walker gets his days in court with
Brett Kimberlin Lord Voldemort as the defendant, I wonder if there will be anything left of the Dark Lord’s enterprises.
Justice through blogging. And then the courts.
