Justice Clarence Thomas Doesn't Like His Job

The Orange County Register reports on a speech Clarence Thomas gave at Chapman University on Monday.

"'There's not much that entices about the job,' Thomas said, answering questions from the public that provided a rare glimpse of the man behind the office. 'There's no money in it, no privacy, no big houses, and from an ego standpoint, it does nothing for me.' Thomas, 59, said the position is satisfying because he feels he's serving the public, and he's honored by it, 'but I wouldn't say I like it. I like sports,' Thomas said. 'I like to drive a motor home.'"

Then I think it's simple, nothing is keeping you there, resign. I don't think anyone should stay at a job they don't like.

Poor, underprivileged Clarence... it's an awful disgrace that he only makes a paltry $194k/year with no expenses related to his work (his staff and office expenses are paid directly by the government, of course.) This for working 9 grueling months of every year. I'm sure he has to fill those 3 months off with lucrative speaking engagements to make ends meet.

He should do what he really wants to, make George the emperor so the court can retire en masse. He'd probably have a disagreement with Scalia, though, who'd rather have Cheney as emperor.
