Outing a keyboard warrior

Here's a priceless nugget from the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that rebuked President Bush for violating American law and the Geneva Conventions (see my post yesterday). Justice Clarence Thomas, in his dissent defending both Bush and the notion of an unfettered wartime executive, took a swipe at colleague John Paul Stevens, who had voted with the majority. Thomas huffed that Stevens' reasoning was hampered by "unfamiliarity with the realities of warfare."

Check out the official Supreme Court biographies:
Stevens served four years in the Navy during World War II.
Thomas never served.
