Justices Scalia And Thomas's Attendance At Koch Event Sparks Judicial Ethics Debate
Reports that two Supreme Court Justices have attended seminars sponsored by the energy giant and conservative bankroller Koch Industries has sparked a mild debate over judicial ethics.

On Tuesday evening, the New York Times reported that an upcoming meeting in Palm Springs of "a secretive network of Republican donors" that was being organized by Koch Industries, "the longtime underwriter of libertarian causes." Buried in the third to last graph was a note that previous guests at such meetings included Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, two of the more conservative members of the bench.

3. Right up there with "military music"

And to think I used to believe that "Oxymoron" was a term invented to describe Rush Limbo.

6. The Supreme Court 5 undid my belief in an ethical Supreme Court
to me, they're nothing more than whores for the right wing - that includes those who retired, as well as those who remain. The right wingers on the court have worked tirelessly to undermine Americans' belief in a judiciary worthy of the term.
