Virginia and Clarence: doubting Thomases?

Sign this petition if you think that being married to a professional opponent of health-care reform may tend to judicial bias on Justice Thomas’ part.
Given Thomas’ history in the 2000 election and the Citizens United decision that made citizens of corporations, I think this is mere understatement: Thomas should be required to stay out of any case in which his decision might so much as appear to be influenced by his wife’s political activities and consequent financial investment in the outcome. This is the law as it pertains to all lower courts; how much more, then, ought it to apply to the highest court in the nation?
But at least this petition is a step in the right direction.
