    the House votes to impeach.

    And no, there is no way that an impeachment vote would ever take place in a GOP controlled House on an issue that involves a rank partisan, conservative like Thomas.  And the vote to convict can't take place without the impeachment vote taking place in the House first.

    Even though I'm a partisan Democrat, I don't think Thomas should be impeached -- not unless a lot more substantive evidence of a quid pro quo comes to light.  I have no problem with hounding him on the ethics issues and making it a public controversy.  But its damaging enough simply to call attention to the appearance of a conflict.

    I agree with you that this likely had no bearing on Roberts decision.  If it did, we should have seen some evidence of this in the Citizens United decision.
