Justice Thomas had his say yesterday.  Justice Kennedy also addressed Citizens United, although in much more brief terms.

Most of the questions from the audience, written on notecards, were about the case, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. But Kennedy addressed it only briefly, and then with a quip. His response when asked about President Barack Obama’s comment that the ruling invited special-interest money into politics:

“I’ve got a lifetime job,” Kennedy said. “He doesn’t.”
