Open Thread


by Mary

Terry Gross's interview with Jeffrey Toobin was very interesting. I think my favorite tidbit was where Toobin noted that not too long ago Scalia was asked to compare his judicial philosophy to that of Clarence Thomas. The answer?

And Scalia responded, "well, look: I'm a conservative, I'm a textualist, I'm an originalist, but I'm not a nut."

Sounds like Thomas has done a great job of alienating his natural allies.

Okay, here's tonight's open thread.
