Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas opened his mouth again and it went about as well as you would expect.
“I always knew that it would have to be a black president who was approved by the elites and the media,” Thomas said last month at Duquesne Law School in remarks posted to YouTube Friday.
“Any black person who says something that is not the prescribed things that they expect from a black person will be picked apart,” the justice said. “Pick anyone who’s decided not to go along with it — there’s a price to pay. So I always assumed it would be somebody that the media had to agree with.”
Presumably Thomas believes an ideal black president would be someone who fits the mold of Herman Cain or Clayton Bigsby. President Obama obviously doesn’t fall into that category and thus, according to Thomas, the first black president is the disappointment he always knew it would be.
Is there a more smug person on the face of the planet? He’s like Terence Mann as played by James Earl Jones, except in Thomas’s case he never agrees to go to the baseball game.
