C-Span followed Clarence Thomas around his book release party at the home of Armstrong Williams. Its a rather amusing video with cameos from David Souter, Antonin Scalia, John Roberts, Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito, the ever-lovely Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Arlen Specter, Lindsey Graham, Dick Cheney and a plethora of mid-major political stars and their spouses. Here are the things that I learned:

John Roberts looks like a real square when he’s drinking a soda (or alcoholic beverage?). Stephen Breyer looks like a real cool kid. Thomas Sowell is a chess master. Micahel Chertoff’s job is really taking a toll on his body. Samuel Alito’s haircut is a little sketchy, but his wife speaks very well and sounds like a cool kid. Watching Alito and Specter talk baseball and Thomas and Graham talk USC football is a keen reminder of how human these political figures are, despite the way the people (myself included) portray them as ideological ironclads.

Clarence Thomas, like everyone else, has an opinion on the Appalachian State upset over Michigan. He grills Stephen A. Smith of ESPN on the media bias against the Cowboys and drops some random bits of sports trivia.

Overall, a pretty interesting video if you’re a Political nerd or if for some reason you can’t fall asleep.
