Stephen Colbert ‘Defends’ Embattled Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has recently come under political attack for not reporting his wife’s income and “dropping by” a secret corporate fundraiser. Last night Stephen Colbert “defended” the embattled Thomas, not just from alleged tax evasion, but also from charges that he was inappropriately paid for attending a conservative political retreat. “It wasn’t a bribe,” Colbert chided, “it was a reward!” He then proceeded to call the taciturn Thomas up on the phone. It was funny.
