On this weekend's Meet the Press, current GOP frontrunner Herman Cain was asked who would be his ideal model for a Supreme Court Justice and to no one's surprise, Cain named Mr. What-Scalia-Said Clarence Thomas as someone he has "a lot of respect for."

GREGORY: What about the Supreme Court? Who's your model of the ideal Supreme Court justice who you would appoint?

CAIN: I would say that there are several that I have a lot of respect for. Justice Clarence Thomas is one of them. I believe that Justice Clarence Thomas, despite all of the attacks that he gets from the left, he basically rules and makes his decisions, in my opinion, based upon the Constitution and solid legal thinking. Justice Clarence Thomas is one of my models.

GREGORY: Has he been targeted unfairly, you think?

CAIN: I think he has been targeted unfairly.
