Clarence Thomas visits Limbaugh's home

I'm sure he felt quite at home with the nasty, bigoted, junkie hatemonger.

Yesterday I flew the "24" contingent that was at the party down here to Palm Beach. We had a blowout dinner party last night at my house, it ended at three a.m. At 1:30 this morning a bunch of us are out by the pool, and Surnow comes in, “I want some bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches.” We just finished eating at ten o'clock. So we hustled up some bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches. Listen to the guest list. I had Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife, Ginny, last night...

And, yes, the producers of "24," apparently are huge Rush fans and were on the program yesterday.

UPDATE: Found this on regarding a book on Thomas:

Foskett also unearths a few curious facts about Thomas. His favorite movie is "The Fountainhead," based on the Ayn Rand novel about a fiercely independent architect who dynamites his own building rather than see his ideas compromised; each year Thomas hosts a required screening of the movie for his law clerks.

Also, Foskett reports that among the things that cheered Thomas during his recovery from his confirmation battle was discovering Rush Limbaugh. "He listened for hours on end to the conservative commentator blast the liberal media and excoriate the Democrats on Capitol Hill," Foskett writes. "Limbaugh's rants gave voice to his own anger."

"The Fountainhead" as required viewing? Frightening.
