Far more shocking to me than the sex scandals are the blatant alignments of Supreme Court justices with political and economic agendas that once might have suggested conflict of interest. Clarence Thomas is the most blatant example--his wife is a tea-partyish activist; Scalia used to hunt with Dick Cheney. They are saying, you know what we're here to do; don't expect us to keep an open mind. Conflict of interest? Get over it.
