Thomas also said at one point: ďI do think that what happened at the court is tremendously bad...I wonder how long weíre going to have these institutions at the rate weíre undermining them.Ē
Thomas also touched in passing on the protests by liberals at conservative justicesí homes in Maryland and Virginia that followed the draft opinionís release. Thomas argued that conservatives have never acted that way.
ďYou would never visit Supreme Court justicesí houses when things didnít go our way. We didnít throw temper tantrums. I think it is ... incumbent on us to always act appropriately and not to repay tit for tat,Ē he said.
