Yes, Virginia, there's plenty of dough to go around
Justice Clarence Thomas is one of the strict constructionists on the US. Supreme Court who voted to open the floodgates for corporate political contributions. Meanwhile, his wife Virginia , an activist in the Tea Party movement, was busy constructing a nonprofit lobbying group called Liberty Central that will be eligible to receive corporate money for her mission to promote "liberty" and slam President Obama's "hard-left agenda." She told the Los Angeles Times: "I adore all the new citizen patriots who are rising up across the country." And the Tea Partiers have told us who the unpatriotic ones are. If we don't already know, she says, Liberty Central will be issuing score cards to keep us all up to date. Will she call it "America's Enemies List"?
