What an excellent reflection on the Constitution, the role of judges, etc. One of the terrible things about what they did to Clarence Thomas in the hearings is the fact that, although they were not able to defeat him, they did manage to tar him and his image so badly that he rarely goes into the public forum to speak or write, and when he does, it’s virtually ignored. I heard him speak once, at a Catholic legal organization event, and he’s an excellent speaker. And the few things I have read by him have always been thought provoking - and extremely clear, logical and non-rhetorical. Yet schools will not have him as a speaker, he’s still constantly ridiculed by the press, etc.
His autobiography, My Grandfather’s Son, is worth reading, btw.
Indeed it is!
Yes. And no one who actually reads it will any longer have doubt about Thomas's qualifications to be a Supreme Court justice.
