Justice Clarence Thomas: bobblehead



The creative folks over at The Greenbag (you gotta love those guys) have released their latest bobblehead of a Supreme Court justice: Clarence Thomas is so honored.

This illustration is too small to make out the details, but here are links to the annotations and the accessories.  I would have included this quote from his dissent in Kelo, which is engraved on the side of my coffee mug: "Something has gone seriously awry with this Court's interpretation of the Constitution."  Indeed.

(Rick Garnett previously posted here that the Yale Law Library is the official depository for the bobbleheads.)

But whose voice would it be? Not his.

The internet makes irony sometimes difficult to detect. But I would suppose this is the ONLY bobblehead that would not speak or ask questions. See Adam Liptak, No Argument: Thomas Keeps 5-Year Silence, NY Times (Feb. 12, 2011) (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/13/us/13thomas.html).

Perhaps this "bobblehead" should include a voice in the form of questions asked at oral arguments to distinguish it from other "bobbleheads."
