Some Of His Best Friends Are Supreme Court Justices

ken salazarKen Salazar has himself a Tim Russert moment:

There are members of the U.S. Supreme Court that I very much disagree with. Clarence Thomas, for example, I think is an abomination when you contrast him to the leadership and principles of someone like Thurgood Marshall. I’ve been in front of the court and I know the justices.

The comparison is quite natural. They knew each other, after all, during their stints in Harry Belafonte’s band.

Meanwhile, Salazar has said he will vote against filibuster, and says that if Democrats try to block the vote he will call a meeting of the Gang of 14.
