Ginni Thomas out at Tea Party group she startedGinni Thomas

Virginia “Ginni” Thomas is stepping down from Liberty Central, the Tea Party nonprofit group she started earlier this year. Not because political activism and fundraising (from anonymous donors) by the wife of a Supreme Court justice raises ethical questions, but because the media keeps bugging Ginni about said ethical questions. Just last month, Ginni had to remove her name from a “memo” that called Obamacare unconstitutional, so that her husband wouldn’t have to recuse himself when it came time for him to decide that Obamacare is unconstitutional.

And also there was this thing a little while ago where Ginni called up the woman her husband sexually harassed many years ago, and demanded an apology. That one confused a lot of people.

Ginni will take “a back seat so that Liberty Central can continue with its mission without any of the distractions.” The powers that be seem to have decided that they don’t want Ginni in charge of millions of anonymous dollars, and her organization is apparently merging with The Patrick Henry Foundation, a group founded by lying nutcase ex-FBI agent Gary Aldrich. ( Liberty Central’s flack is accusing the Post of breaching “confidentiality” in reporting this fact, and they refuse to confirm it.)

Here, because I find it amusing, is a video of Ginni Thomas introducing you to Liberty Central:

“In just three-to-five minutes a day, you will discover ways you can help to restore the greatness of our country.” It’s activism as miracle diet cure! (Does cutting a $50,000 check to Ginni really take three-to-five minutes?)

    Sonic's Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog

    Sonic calls this a "gourmet twist" on a classic. I am not so, so fancy, but I know that sprinkling bacon and cheddar cheese onto a tube of pork is not gourmet, even if you have made a bun out of something that is theoretically French.

    Pizza Hut basically just glued pigs-in-blankets to the crust of its normal pizza. This actually sounds good, and I blame America for brainwashing me into feeling that.

Just calm down, Tokyo Dog. Calm down.
