Or, pot meet kettle.
In speech to 400 students at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, U.S. Supreme Court judge Clarence Thomas expressed his dim view of Americans:
“Our country and our principles are more important than our individual wants.”
Thomas next dared to bastardize the famous President Kennedy speech, “Ask not what your country can do for you,” and said Americans today are more likely to say, “Ask not what you can do for yourselves or your country but what your country can do for you.”
Curious sentiments from a man who got into college via Affirmative Action and once on the Federal bench, went on to write the fewest opinions of any of the Supreme Court justices.
