Well, It Looks Like Clarence Thomas Isn't Mute After All

February 29, 2016
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas drew gasps yesterday when he asked actually asked a question in one of the Court's proceedings.

Why is this gasp-worthy?

It's been ten years since he's asked a question during oral arguments.

Why now?

Theory is, he was jumping into the spot recently vacated by his pal Antonin Scalia.

Or maybe he's just one of those guys who doesn't like the sound of his own voice.

Could be that he was even shocked..
