Why the Supreme Court Matters

I keep hearing the obvious right-wing partisans from Longmont's Lunatic Fringe howling about 'transparency' and I routinely scoff at the concept of -them- being up-front about their motives. Especially after all the backstage maneuvers.

That feeling is magnified a thousandfold when I see stories like this:

Justice's wife launches 'tea party' group
The nonprofit run by Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is likely to test notions of political impartiality for the court.
-----
Make no mistake, the recent ruling about corporate funding rested squarely in this man's hands and he chose against us, the American people, in favor of big business. Bought and paid for, plain and simple.
-----
Experts say Virginia Thomas' work doesn't violate ethical rules for judges. But Liberty Central could give rise to conflicts of interest for her husband, they said, as it tests the norms for judicial spouses
----
'Could' give rise to conflicts? No shit Sherlock. Now the corruption has reached the Supreme Court... eight years of Bush are over, but now we might have decades of this shit?

When you have essentially unlimited money and help from the Court, there's no upper limit to how evil you can get - and pay no price. That's why you rig courts - to cover for your pals.

Expect the worst.
