Clarence Thomas’ wife becomes Teabagger leader, wants to stop Obama’s ‘hard-left agenda’

Republicans destroy institutions, it’s what they do.

Science, media, government – their goal, for whatever reason, is to undermine. It’s what they’re doing to congress and the presidency, it’s what they’ve been doing to the courts for years (arguing that courts are no longer impartial arbiters), and now it’s what they’re doing to the Supreme Court. It’s no coincidence that at the same time Clarence Thomas’ wife is taking corporation donations to influence elections and policy, Justice Roberts is picking a partisan fight with the White House, and Justice Alito had the temerity to speak out against the President at the State of the Union.

For whatever reason, Republicans believe in destroying institutions of authority in our country. It’s a scary thought, and it’s working.

In January, Virginia Thomas created Liberty Central Inc., a nonprofit lobbying group whose website will organize activism around a set of conservative “core principles,” she said.

The group plans to issue score cards for Congress members and be involved in the November election, although Thomas would not specify how. She said it would accept donations from various sources — including corporations — as allowed under campaign finance rules recently loosened by the Supreme Court.

Must be nice to have your husband help give a kick start to your new financial venture.
