Re: Abortion Pills Take the Spotlight as States Impose Abortion Bans

Why Thomas published the separate opinion that stole Alito’s thunder: 1. Ole Clarence is fit to be tied about what he regards as the MSM’s ‘high tech lynching’ of his better half, Ginni. 2. He’s been nursing his grievances at being the butt of ridicule for 30 years. Now he is ready to speak out and ...

Alito and Thomas have no excuse for their intellectual dishonesty. Each one of their leaky, wrinkly, septuagenarian butts is old enough to know better.
