Sexist Attacks on Clarance Thomas’ Wife by the Left

Posted by iusbvision on March 15, 2010


The Narrative: If you are the wife of a traditional judge and you vote Republican, you should stay home and bake cookies, if you don’t you’re taking corporate money and you’re a crook.  

Of course when Hillary said she will carry on her career when Bill was running for President it was “two heads are better than one”. Democrats said it was also fine when Hillary’s law firm (Rose Law Firm) was hired by the feds and by the state of Arkansas for state business while Bill was governor.

The left-wing site CrooksandLiars (and other left-wing blogs) trashes Ginny Thomas for daring not to stay at home and do what she has always done. But wait, Ed Rendell who is Governor of Pennsylvania and a big shot on TV and fundraiser for the DNC is married to a federal judge. So I searched crooksandliars web site to see if there is anything but glowing mentions of the Rendells (Search HERE) and of course it’s all grins and giggles. Newsflash: judges often have spouses.

Mini Update – It gets better, take a gander at Justice Ginsburg’s spouse, Martin Ginsburg, who had a big shot law firm, lobbied the U.S. Senate and worked for presidential candidates like Ross Perot. Yet he is a Democrat and a man so that’s ok, I guess male spouses of judges aren’t expected to stay home and bake cookies. Of course now that I have linked to Martin Ginsburg’s wiki entry it may end up being scrubbed of pertinent info, so check the edits back to this date if it happens.

The elite media and their allies did this to Mrs. Thomas when she changed jobs in 2000 as well.

LA Times:

In 2000, while at the Heritage Foundation, she was recruiting staff for a possible George W. Bush administration as her husband was hearing the case that would decide the election. When journalists reported her work, Thomas said she saw no conflict of interest and that she rarely discussed court matters with her husband.

The L.A. Times says that Mrs Thomas is starting a “Tea Party” group, but I searched her web site and the words Tea Party do not appear on it at all. I think it would be great if she did start one, the First Amendment is for everyone, even libertarian wives of judges, but journalists are supposed to be accurate (someone tell CJR).
