Gee, it would have been helpful if this woman had not been silent 20 years ago during confirmation hearings, but then she had her career to protect. And now she has books to sell.

Your #1 fan. egl. If she would have said something 20 years ago, we wouldn't have Thomas in the SC. Anita Hill took a beating from congress. Shame on McEwen.

Impeach a Supreme Court judge? Man, oh, man, that sounds like a great idea. Should only take Congress 100,000 years to pass it. And then they'll impeach one judge a year, every year after that. But we can dream, can't we...

Man, I bet Justice Thomas thinks McEwen's book deal really sucks...no pun intended.

And Mrs Clarence is about to make another phone call. I hope the FBI is ready.

About to be busted, and about time. I've always marveled at his confirmation, and my cynical side says it was intended to undo the respect people had for Thurgood Marshall and ensure that we never have another African-American man on the SC.

You would have to be pretty ignorant to generalize from Judge Tom to all african american jurists.

But the people who would come to that conclusion are indeed pretty ignorant, unfortunately. It wouldn't surprise me at all to learn that raechel is correct in her suspicion.

Papa Bush appointed Clarence so he could cry rac.ism every time his incompetence was brought up.
And Thurgood Marshall and Clarence have nothing in common except their race.

Busted for what? Liking sex with his girlfriend? Or is the girlfriend going to say he harrassed her too and she hung around for more just like Anita Hill did?

You are sure scrambling hard to defend old Clarence here, ladylove.

Busted for lying under oath, busted for sexual harassment while leading the agency charged with enforcing sexual harassment. .

Has it occurred to you that Anita Hill "hung around" because she needed the job - not because of Clarence Thomas but in spite of him?

I can't wait. I also can't wait for the tell all from Sarah Painindaass'es neighbors book that someone is going to write sooner or later, and Crazistian Bachmann's neighbors book. C'mon - someone with money can dig the truth out of those people who are currently scared to death of telling what they know.

The US Senate and the CORPORATE MEDIA did a heck of a job exploring Clarence Thomas' background and values.....the Dems caved to the Repubs circling their wagons.
And then we have Scalia and Alito....2 more that got a free pass from the CORPORATE MEDIA.

I have to run to answer the phone....caller ID says Virginia Thomas is on the line....

I believed Anita Hill at the time and found his lack of candor more alarming then his love of porn. Ok. love porn...so what? But lying is not a trait I like to see in someone on the Supreme Court.

I agree. Lying is a trait we can't support for any Judge wannabee at any level. Porn - eh.

I believed and still do believe Anita Hill but I always thought that it was a mistake to make her the center of the criticism of Thomas. The accusations were too old and it essentially came down to a "he said she said". Yes Hill was much more credible but based strictly on the evidence there wasn't enough to support her case.

The real case against Thomas should have been that he was massively unqualified to be a supreme court judge. He had none of the qualifications for legal scholarship that a nominee should have and if he weren't black he never would have been considered. His behavior on the court reinforces this. He is the ultimate seat filler, he virtually never asks a question or writes an opinion. He just wakes up when its time to vote and listens to how Scalia votes and then does the same.

The ABA tried. He got the lowest competency ratings ever. The republicans were determined to push him through as their token.

Good, it's time to take this clown and his wife out.

Expose him for what? Liking porn? Am I correct that the progressives here think porn is a bad thing? So you think a book by an ex-girlfriend (30 years ago) saying he liked porn is "taking this clown and his wife out"?

Sexual harassment of subordinates, most likely. Her story will confirm the testimony of Anita Hill, which most of us thought rang true from day one.

Unfortunately short of convicting Thomas of a major felony it doesn't matter what comes out in that book. He's there for life.
02:05 PM on 01/05/2011
But anything that makes him uncomfortable is a good thing because he doesn't deserve to be there.

Gee. You think that the American people will not believe Anita Hill after it is published?

Back all those years ago, George H.W. Bush lost my vote when he said that. He clearly showed that his years in the millionnaire boy's club put him out of touch with reality.

You want to read sexually driven material, I suggest "The Other Hollywood: The Uncensored Oral History of the Porn Film Industry". At least you won't be kidding yourself.

I hear it will only be on Kindle, so Thomas can call it a "high tech lynching".
