one word describes this man to me: narcissist.

clarence thomas has taken narcissism to the highest level of jurisprudence this country has ever seen.
and if it weren't for his sister having taken care of his sick relatives all those years, he wouldn't be where he is how. sounds like he never even thanked her, much less return the favor.
