For those Dopers not old enough to remember, Clarence Thomas was the Official Token of Lord Bushdemort I, occasionally telling stories to young Dubya while animated whitebirds sang “Zippity” songs. Having the three major criteria Bush 1 sought in a replacement for the retiring Thurgood Marshall (a conservative record, a history of kissing ass to Republicans since Reagan, and though he wasn’t as light skinned as the liberal pinko Thomas he at least had a white wife), Clarence was rewarded by adding diversity to the Supreme Court (black Bush lovers being REALLY minorities after all).
Unfortunately an evil scheming woman who was probably a secret voodoo queen named Anita Hill came out of the woodwork to “lynch an uppity black man” (paraphrase of Thomas’s actual quote) by saying he’d sexually harassed her repeatedly when she worked for him a decade before. Hill took a lie detector test- Thomas refused- and the nation was riveted by that oddest of things- a 24/7 News Coverage of something sordid and soapy but actually relevant to the nation. In the end Thomas was confirmed and Hill told to go watch a movie of women screwing themselves, and the whole affair sort of died for 16 years. (Odd for a scheming floozy, Hill not only did not try to cash in on her fame but spent the rest of her career generally ignoring it- almost as if she was telling the truth).
Anyway, now Clarence has written a book in which, in addition to saying white liberals were worse than the KKK in black history (Thomas is still p.o.d that neither group would let him join) and in the book he once again calls Hill a liar. In an interview Thomas’s wife, Virginia, asked for an apology for Hill.
It may just be wishful thinking, but perhaps after years of being a relatively media shy and completely above board law professor, could this be the “off with the clip ons and off with the slip ons, I’m going for your hair, bitch!” moment for Anita? AH please let it be let it be let it be…
(Loved Jon Stewart last night showing the clip of Thomas in a recent interview claiming that a white politician would not have had to deal with such negative tales of sexual impropriety, followed of course by a collage of Clinton and Paula, Monica, and the lesser Billettes.)
More MPSIMS I suppose, but I’ll make it a bit more pit worthy by saying “Fuck Clarence Thomas, Fuck Virginia Thomas, and may they both choke on each other’s pubic hairs till the bells ring out 'Long Dong the Quisling is [something less than dead for that would violate the wishing death on somebody- let’s just say] Exposed”.
