Randi Rhodes Compares Clarence Thomas to Scalia's Family Dog

As liberals lecture about deep-seated American racism, liberal radio host was slamming Justice Clarence Thomas on Wednesday. After playing a soundbite of Anthony Kennedy, she said, "I mean, he's thinking out loud and this what they do right -- except for Clarence Thomas who doesn't think. At all." 

Thomas, she joked, was just like a dog: "Whatever Scalia does that's what he does. Well, Scalia's got a cashmere scarf....I want a cashmere scarf! Oh, Scalia's going over here, I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go! Take me, take me! He's like Alan, he's like the dog. Take me! Oh, you're going out for a walk? I wanna go, I wanna go! Scalia's walking, I want to walk, I want to walk!"

Then she compared him to the late Michael Jackson: "Never asked a question -- this is like his trademark now! Do you know what I mean, like Michael Jackson with the one glove, right? It's a trademark, it's a kitschy thing, it's cute, it's adorable. This is a sign of a very incurious mind on our Supreme Court -- a job that only goes to nine people in the entire world, and they pick this one!"
