This weekend marks the 20th anniversary of Clarence Thomas's appointment to the Supreme Court. In his first two decades on the bench, Justice Thomas has established himself as the original Constitution's greatest defender against elite efforts at social engineering. His stances for limited government and individual freedom make him the left's lightning rod and the tea party's intellectual godfather. And he is only halfway through the 40 years he may sit on the high court.
Yoo's partisanship is annoying. I have great respect for Thomas although I sometimes disagree with his perspectives, he is a valuable voice on the court, particularly when it comes to the protection of the constitutional rights of adults.
