1991: Clarence Thomas confirmed to The Supreme Court

The confirmation hearings turned into a disgrace when Clarence Thomas was forced to respond to Anita Hill's charges.    It was a very low point for the US Senate.

The whole thing had nothing to do with their relationship, whatever that was.  It was a last minute attempt by the Democrats to "Bork" Thomas before he had a chance to join the Court.

It was a high tech lynching over abortion, as Mr. Thomas told the committee.

History will judge Thomas.   I'm not capable of judging his opinions or legal knowledge.   He has been a reliable conservative vote in the tradition of Justice Scalia.

No one will ever question Thomas's character, which is a lot stronger than all of the feminists and liberals who took cheap shots at him.

My guess is that Grandpa Thomas is very proud of his grandson Clarence!

For more on about Justice Thomas' life, read his wonderful memoir.
