You just know this is going to set the liberal tongues a wagging!
From The LA Times: [...] "I am an ordinary citizen from Omaha, Neb., who just may have the chance to preserve liberty along with you and other people like you," she said at a recent panel discussion with tea party leaders in Washington. Thomas went on to count herself among those energized into action by President Obama's "hard-left agenda."
But Thomas is no ordinary activist.
She is the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and she has launched a tea-party-linked group that could test the traditional notions of political impartiality for the court.
In January, Virginia Thomas created Liberty Central Inc., a nonprofit lobbying group whose website will organize activism around a set of conservative "core principles," she said.
She is right; Mrs. Thomas is an American citizen and has every right to speak her mind politically. I don’t have a problem with Virginia Thomas being a Tea Party activist, so long as she does not involve Justice Thomas. Conservative or not, Justice Thomas must remain impartial from political action. They had both better make sure they dot their I’s and cross their T’s, because the left will pounce on anything that remotely smells like a conflict of interest.
I am sure once this story gets around; the left is going to get ugly about it. So many things that the left hates is present; a black conservative – check, tea parties – check and an outspoken conservative woman – double check. oh, and don’t think for a second that the Tolerance Party won’t center their ugliness on the fact that the Clarence and Virginia is an interracial couple. I can almost hear the foolishness falling out of Keith Olbermann’s mouth!
Be sure to read the full story, Mrs. Thomas says some really great stuff. Also check out Liberty Central Inc., to learn more about her organization.
