No, it's from second-in-command wingnut Clarence Thomas.  He said of porn, "I know it when I see it," during a Supreme Court case.

Actually it was probably "said" (with the meaning of "first said") by Justice Potter Stewart back in the 1960s. I don't know if Clarence Thomas was quoting him, or whether the latter comment was made up by somebody, on the grounds that, unlike Stewart, Clarence Thomas may well have had a habit of seeing a lot of it...

Okay, fine, go and prove me wrong when I was all high and mighty with my meaningless Supreme Court trivia!

Yeah it was Potter Stewart (below) but I like Jerome's tale on it better!
