The Supreme Court ruled on Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. It ruled 8-1 on the law. The dissent? Clarence Thomas. While the other justices weren't wild about the law's application, they voted to uphold it - even Scalia. The holdout? The lone black justice on the court.
And then Thomas acts befuddled and outraged because he is not embraced by black Americans, and will never be anything close to Justice Marshall.
