Yes. Yes you are.

Sure, I perjured myself for partisanship.

But, it ended up benefiting real victims of sexual harassment,

So we're cool, right?

She is still alive?

Oh, no no NO! He is much, much smarter than you, and he'll be the first to tell you so. He's oddly quiet about the "being wrong a lot anyway" part.

Yes, and making valuable contributions in her field; unlike, say, a certain SCOTUS justice who's apparently capable of little more than parroting America's most powerful homophobe.

She wasn't charged, but she apparently wasn't believed by the committee.

Of course, that's because they were white.

From what I saw, the committee was evenly split.

Of course, that's because those that believed her were liberal.

/hey, this is fun!

Does anyone remember the Saturday Night Live skit about the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings? It's ppretty farking funny.

Apparently the evenly split 7-7 committee vote on his nomination prior to sending it to the full senate.

Anita Hill is as about as credible as they come, Clarence is about the biggest can of shiat on the planet.

The fact that you can hold a seat of such power and be so willfully ignorant, destructively ignorant or just plain evil to the common good of our country while still lining your pockets and flouting the law is just obscene.

When he goes I will have the same reaction that I had to Fred Phelps dying.  Mr. Justice, sir, you are a piece of shiat.

That's the stuff of a republican's wet dream.

I'll celebrate when Thomas, Scalia, and Alito are gone from the court.
 
2014-03-21 11:13:25 PM
You know, everybody knows what Antonin Scalia is; he thinks of himself as an oligarch who does as he pleases, and then justifies his whims by pretending to commune with the dead.

But Thomas is in a place by himself as someone who should probably not be serving on the SCOTUS.  To him, it's a title that confers status; that he has to show up and deliver opinions is an inconvenience he clearly would prefer to do without.
 
2014-03-21 11:13:28 PM
Clarence Thomas has his wife take hundreds of thousands dollars for "access" from people who have interest  in front of the court.

This guy is not farking ethical at all.

Cewley: hill vastly more intellectual liberal than dumb cluck conservative clarence and his horrid honky wife. she  should have gotten the seat while clarence stayed home and looked at porn.walks on water and can do no wrong.

No, it was real. It was pretty obvious at the time, too. Thomas is an ass, a right wingnut of the worst sort, but this was a smear job pure and simple.

I have doubts, but 'pure and simple' and 'obvious' seem rather dismissive without anything particularly convincing.

I see nothing has changed with the feminists.

Rabidly scream that any questioning her story is just like rape, Then is you do bother to pick apart the story , Its okay for her to lie about sexual harassment because this some how helps women , but you are still a rapist for questioning a woman.

I was only just barely 11 when the confirmation hearings happened, so even though I watched all of the confirmation hearings (my mom decided it would be educational), I really don't know what to believe. Other than that I can't believe that my mom let 11 year old me watch the whole sordid thing.

You understand that this was one of the most widely covered stories of the  early 90s and probably the biggest 'scandal' of Bush, The Greaters presidency?
