Meet Mrs. Clarence Thomas, the Teabagger!

  our noble justices

Hey you know he's got a point!Wingnut dimwit Clarence Thomas is the far right’s most reliable stooge on the Supreme Court, but what about his wife nobody has ever heard about? She is Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, and she also has important opinions based on the the rantings of AM talk radio windbags! And now she has launched her own Teabagger Organization to fight for Real American Values such as impeaching that African sonofabitch in the White House.

Speak truth to fascism, Ginni, in your own words:

Ginni is a new social entrepreneur and the Founder of Liberty Central, Inc. Ginni is excited about launching LibertyCentral.org and finds the new citizen activists inspirational! She brings passion, enthusiasm and principled participation to the public square. With 30 years of experience within the Washington beltway working alongside esteemed politicians like Dick Armey and for institutions like Hillsdale College, the Heritage Foundation and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Ginni is committed to serving as a clearinghouse for new and more effective online activism. Ginni, the ‘proud’ Nebraskan, is a fan of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham and other talk radio hosts. She is intrigued by Glenn Beck and listening carefully. She also enjoys motor homing and watching “24″.

Oh jesus motherfucking christ.

Anyway, according to a news article there are “concerns” about a wingnut Supreme Court justice having a dingbat wingnut wife doing Tea Party nonsense on the “national stage.” Really, considering these people threw the goddamned presidential election in 2000, are we now supposed to feign outrage over one of their spouses being a common teabagger?

    I’m sure the Tea Baggers will embrace Mrs. Thomas right back to the tune of “Ebony and Ivory.”

  2. Nappied Hypotenuse

    “She brings passion, penthusiasm and principled participation to the public polygon.” Alliteration fixed

    Also: Why am I not surprised that a teabaggepreneur is also a motorhomosexual?

  3. the problem child

    Note to eds: There is a problem with accessing this link.

    On the other hand, perhaps its best if the Wonketteers spend a bit more time learning about the logistics and mechanics of oral sex before tackling motorhoming.

  4. loquaciousmusic

    I’ll bet that, if you looked behind the toilet of her motor home, you’d find a few Kate Bush albums and a copy of Mother Jones. Let’s not count Ginny out yet, folks. SHE MAY BE ONE OF US!

  5. Tommmcatt

    **SIGH**

    This is the court that is going to judge whether my husband of five years gets the survivor benefits I’ve paid into my whole life if I kick the bucket first.

    I should just be resigned to remain a second-class-citizen for the rest of my life.

    Fucking wingnuts.

  6. ManchuCandidate

    I’m “sure” that the Teabaggers not only welcome but embrace Mrs Thomas’ bi racial marriage.

  7. trondant

    She is intrigued by Glenn Beck and listening carefully.

    Why did parakeets in front of mirrors come to mind when I read that?

  8. V572625694

    The ‘proud’ Nebraskan? Why the scare-quotes? Is it ‘ironic’ to be ‘proud’ of being from Nebraska? Fuckin retarded, yes, but….

  9. Chernobyl Soup

    Had no idea. I figured if he had a wife she would have died of shame around about 1990.

  10. Zadig

    No srsly, how are we only concerned about this shit NOW, and not when Clarence ‘Uncle’ Thomas was driving around with a “Sore Loserman” bumper sticker before they were printed en masse?

  11. DustBowlBlues

    Her m*****fucking husband (as a mother myself, I have to use asterisks) wouldn’t be in the majority if the sainted Sandra Day O’Connor hadn’t appointed Junior Bush as president.

    I hope that lady is sorry about that every day. I know I am.

  12. ShamWow

    She is intrigued by Glenn Beck and listening carefully. She also enjoys motor homing and watching “24″

    But does she enjoy pubic hair on her can of Coke?

  13. Einstein'

    Uh, Ginny honey, you realize you support groups that don’t like black people, right? And have you noticed that your husband is one?

  14. charlesdegoal

    I thought the Supremes had to be celibate. Also, what’s a motor-homing Nebraskan? Midwestern trailer trash?

  15. Chickensmack

    [re=530481]trondant[/re]: I thought “usage mistake on the writer’s behalf,” when I read it. Please, Jesuses, let me be right.

  16. DustBowlBlues

    [re=530472]loquaciousmusic[/re]: Given your level of optimism, are we to assume you not only see unicorns but actually have one of their magic rainbow-colored horns up your ass?

  17. SmutBoffin

    [re=530481]trondant[/re]: Glenn Beck is not something you think about. You either get it or you don’t. One day you are walking down the street and you say to yourself “Ya know, maybe the modern progressive platform is just a obfuscated form of National Socialism and the Libruls are all coming To TaKe mY GoLD ANd GUNS AND GOD I NEED TO LISTEN ATTENTIVELY TO EVERY SECOND OF GLEN’S SHOW HE WILL HELP UP WITH HIS MAGICAL MEDIA MORMON POWERS AND BLACKBOARD”

  18. coolcatdaddy

    Well, now we know.

    Clarence Thomas has a wife that is as intellectually gifted as he is.

  19. DustBowlBlues

    How do I contact Dennis Kucinich and tell him that he got 2 votes in the 2004 primary in my county, and as half his constituency here, I want a yes vote for Health Care Reform?

    (The two votes are true. But I wasn’t actually one of them–I’m not that stupid).

  20. BeWoot

    So Clarence the Mum and his wife enjoy “motor homing”? Gee. As a resident of Arizona, through which every goddamned RV in America is required to creep, I’ll have to start looking more closely at the fat and slow sojourners as they drive by. Seeing ol’ Clarence at the wheel would be a huge thrill.

  21. rachelv

    What kind of “man” forces his wife to serve as a clearinghouse?

    Seriously, what does this mean,
    “Ginni is committed to serving as a clearinghouse for new and more effective online activism”?

  22. Joey Ratz

    Ginni, the ‘proud’ Nebraskan, is a fan of Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham and other talk radio hosts

    A “proud” Nebraskan? WTF? Is she secretly rooting for the fucking Sooners? Is she an Oklahoma State alum? Is she not tipping cows?

    Oh, and nice touch with the motor homes and 24-watching. I would have thought that our SCOTUS families had more upper-crust tastes, but it turns out I was wrong. What’s next – “Mrs. John Roberts enjoys alligator wrestling, trucknutz and watching German Scheiβe movies”? Jésus H. motherfucking Christ on a pogo stick…

  23. kth

    [re=530482]V572625694[/re]: no, the quotes are to imply that she’s defensive about it. Interviewer: “Where are you from?” “Nebraska, and DAMNED PROUD OF IT. YOU GOT A PROBLEM WITH NEBRASKA?” “uh, no, just asking where you were from.”

  24. freakishlystrong

    Do these people take a drug or something? What has happened to 26% of our country? It’s just goose-stepping winuttia all the time. Everything out of their pie-holes is utterly predictable.
    Can you imagine the wingnut reaction if say, David Souter’s wife, had organized and ran a chapter for Code Pink?

  25. nappyduggs

    O, I see. He harasses black women and marries white ones. I suppose in his case it’s six of one, half a dozen of the other.

  26. V572625694

    [re=530505]Deepthroat[/re]: Plus when you’re motorhomo-ing, you don’t get all those ugly looks at the Motel 6 or Denny’s — miscegenation and all that, ya know.

  27. Extemporanus

    [re=530413]Buzz Feedback[/re]: It’s only natural that black people would cotton to Ginny.

  28. sezme

    People of Wal-Mart department:

    “Ginny says that they have stayed in “dozens” of Wal-Mart parking lots across the country, and they make for great stops because you can “get a little shopping in.” So if you see a 40-foot RV parked at your local Wal-Mart, you might want to take a second look, as it may be Justice Thomas and Ginny.”

    From a puff piece about Clarence and Ginny’s motorhomosexuality on theskinetwork.com (along with a terrifying visual) of the neckless couple.

  29. sezme

    [re=530505]Deepthroat[/re]: How did you go back in time and post what I was going to post before I posted it?

  30. Buzz Feedback

    [re=530523]Lazy Media[/re]: Uh, yeah. And her husband is black. I’ll go slower for you in the future.

  31. Terry

    [re=530512]freakishlystrong[/re]: “Can you imagine the wingnut reaction if say, David Souter’s wife, had organized and ran a chapter for Code Pink?”

    I’d be actually shocked to find out that Souter HAS a wife.

  32. Canmon (the Inadequate)

    First we learned about “teabagging”, then “snorkeling”. There’s no way I’m going to Urban Dictionary to learn what “motorhoming” is a euphemism for.

  33. sezme

    Actually, all that wal-mart stuff comes from a WSJ interview which contains this communist tidbit: “An alert reader has let us know that the manufacturer of the Thomases’ motorhome is ‘Prevost,’ not Pravo, as initially indicated. Prevost, a division of Volvo, is headquartered in Sainte-Claire, Quebec.”

  34. AbstinenceOnly Ed

    [re=530526]Smoke Filled Roommate[/re]: oh god, beaten to the punch. but I linked!

  35. doxastic

    I see that, like her husband, Ginni is intrigued by the prospect of listening carefully–but isn’t fully convinced.

  36. Mr Blifil

    [re=530529]Terry[/re]: Souter is famously unmarried, for reasons that may relate to Lindsay Graham being famously unmarried, and for Rush Limbaugh being famously unable to remain married or to father childrens. These reasons also relate to sucking on super tubers.

  37. trondant

    “Getting a little shopping in” means going to Harrod’s or Macy’s while on vacay. Going to Wal-Mart means “my panniculus has worn out the elastic waistband in my sweatpants again and I need a new pair.”

  38. FMA

    [re=530519]sezme[/re]: And if you see that motorhome a’rockin’, don’t come a’knocking.

    Unless, of course, you really want to gouge your own eyes out with a spork.

  39. Monsieur Grumpe

    Motor homing?
    Glenn Beck intriguing?
    Proud Nebraskan?
    Fan of Rush Limbaugh?
    Married to Clarence Thomas?
    30 years of experience within the Washington beltway?

    Go easy on her, she’s living in hell.

  40. V572625694

    And we can’t let this go unmocked: “working alongside esteemed politicians like Dick Armey…”

    Who has esteem for Dick Armey? Who doesn’t recognize him as a reliable tool and hack for right-wing interests? Who doesn’t remember him referring to Barney Frank as “Barney Fag”? Who, even among the Republicans, could possibly have “esteem” for this unspeakable gasbag?

  41. JMP

    I call shenanigans on one thing; Dick Armey’s never been esteemed, either as a politician or as a human being in general.

  42. Limeylizzie

    [re=530519]sezme[/re]: That photo of the lovely couple is astonishingly hideous, his neck looks more like a goitre and hers is just non-existent.

  43. Schmegeg

    Teabaggers? I would have though Clarence married a nice girl who loves the taste of Coca Cola.

  44. Extemporanus

    [re=530530]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]: I’ll save you the trouble…

    “Motorhoming” is much like “motorboating”, only instead of large breasts, it involves butt cheeks.

    (Oh, and also “bumperstickers”, “mudflaps”, and the occasional “spare tire”.)

  45. Extemporanus

    [re=530571]Extemporanus[/re]: [re=530530]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]: [re=530563]Pandy[/re]: Oh jesus, there’s already a definition for “motorhoming”.

    I liked mine better — it put the “homo” in “homing”.

  46. JMP

    [re=530561]V572625694[/re]: What the hell; I make a point that no one has raised the whole time since the original post, and then you make it at the exact same moment.

    [re=530571]Extemporanus[/re]: Is there a single word in the English language that hasn’t been turned into an obscure sexual slang by someone?

  47. DustBowlBlues

    [re=530511]kth[/re]: Seriously, is there anything about which these people aren’t defensive? (On any other blog, I would have ended with the preposition, but I know not to offend the unemployed English majors who make up the bulk of the Wonkeratti).

    If a reporter asks, “What do you read?” it’s an offense to Alaska.

    Why are the wingers so fucking angry? At least in the good old days, Uncle Toms were meek. Mostly.

  48. mumblyjoe

    [re=530525]MysteriousTraveller[/re]: To be fair, I’m 1000% certain that Roberts finds this every bit as ‘troubling’ as the president criticizing a court decision for its negative consequence, during his State of the Union.

    Wait, what’s that? No? He doesn’t?

    …motherfucker.

  49. comicbookguy

    If this motorhome’s a rockin, it means Jack Bauer is interrogating that Jordanian family what lives down the street.

  50. DustBowlBlues

    [re=530499]DustBowlBlues[/re]: That sounded rude to Loguacious, which I didn’t mean. The feigned optimism was actually quite funny, and I am a bitch.

    I haven’t read beyond my comment, in case someone already said what I just did and I would get my feelings hurt.

  51. Oldskool

    “She is intrigued by Glenn Beck and listening carefully. She also enjoys motor homing and watching “24″.”

    Apparently she’s bright enough to know that pandering to teabaggers doesn’t require syntax or logic so I predict she’ll be a huge success.

  52. V572625694

    [re=530579]JMP[/re]: Here, let’s make a fair list of Republican politicians for whom you could have esteem, regardless of whether you disagree with them or not:

    1. Abraham Lincoln.
    2. Barry Goldwater.

    That concludes my list. McCain used to be on it, but there was this woman he wanted on the ticket…

  53. CaliforniaMike

    [re=530561]V572625694[/re]: He would be held in high esteem if he were being compared to fellow Texans Rick Perry, George ‘Dubya’ Bush and Tom Delay.

  54. Terry

    [re=530544]Mr Blifil[/re]:

    I might have said that he is a “confirmed bachelor”, but yes.

  55. Ducksworthy

    Poo Poo Mrs. Clarence,

    She has fallen frpm being a Heritage Foundation flack to a common tea bagger. As I recall, as Clarence was deciding whether or not to crown W or just give him his deserved pretzelduncy Ginnie was working for the Heritage Foundation to find the stupidest Regent University graduates to populate the criminally corrupt Bush DOT (Department of Torture).

  56. JMP

    [re=530665]bored with gravity[/re]: But he eventually left the party and ran as an independent, so I’m not sure if he counts as Republican. I would include Dwight Eisenhower, though, and um; hm, there’s got to be somebody else… Earl Warren, maybe?

  57. chaste everywhere

    But she don’t say if Hubby still be into money shots on breasts. The Senate Judiciary Committee needs to know!

  59. V572625694

    [re=530665]bored with gravity[/re]: Bull Moose Party (third campaign?) shows that he had the sense to leave the Republitards behind, right?

    But yes, worthy of esteem indeed.

  60. Pop Socket

    This is reading just like a fucking Lewis Sinclair novel. Ginny runs for president, Thomas upholds the elections and the goose-stepping starts.

  61. Darkness

    [re=530513]nappyduggs[/re]: Wait, she’s white? Virginia “Ginni” is a WASP? This must be a Nebraska thing.

    And, yeah, I just assumed there MUST be blacks in Nebraska, cuz I see them playing on their football team on the teevee.

    OK people all the superclever comments and jokes and stuff are great but seriously now, don’t we citizens of the USA kind of expect the Supremes to at least be reasonably intelligent and capable of complex and critical thinking and stuff, and here one of them is qualified to wear an “I’m With Stupid” tee shirt. And stupid people generally hang around with and end up marrying other stupid people. Which you may have noticed makes Thomas stupid by association.
    Back all those years ago I watched many hours of the Anita Hill related hearing and it was clear to me that Thomas was a very angry, rigid, sexist, emotionally immature, narrow minded but clever man willing to do anything, which included lying his ass off, to get on the Court. Well, maybe he’s just so fucked up any white woman would do.
    Having stayed a time or two in my minivan in Walmart parking lots while on road trips, I have to say I’ve always found some charm in Thomas’s RV thing. Next time out may they die in a fiery single vehicle crash.

  68. emjayay

    I just looked up Prevost, their RV brand. They make busses like you know Bolt and Megabus use, and the RV’s are the same thing tricked out for living in. About the size of an average apartment inside, with supercheesy designer interiors. They just park at WalMart to show off.

  71. emjayay

    Oh, and obviously her new teabagger related group is achieving immediate notoriety almost entirely because she is married to one of the nine of the most important government employees in the country, charged with making the most important decisions possible. And she’s all about not just idolizing a gang of demagogues, but is of course all anti-tax. The taxes that pay her husband $199,200 a jyear, four times the average US salary. A guy who has been working in mostly high level federal government positions for 31 years – since 1979. Plus – conflict of interest problems for Thomas? Lucky for him the Supremes get to decide if they have to recuse themselves. Just ask Clarence’s buddy Scalia. This is one of the most stunning and underreported developments in the short but wacko history of teabaggerism.
