R.I.P. Sen. arlen Specter. You were the lone moderate voice in a sea of neocons and Tea Party cerazies. The American people long for more legislators like you-one with a voice of reason. You have fought a brave battle with cancer for many years. We can even forgive your defense of that slimball, Clarence Thomas. Thank you for your years of service. Pennsylvanians on both sides of the aisle were lucky to have you represent them all these year. Now rest in peace.
While many on FB are praising Arlen Specter, I remind you all that he gave us Clarence Thomas.
Is there an irony in the death of Arlen Specter whose harsh treatment of Anita Hill essentially cinched the confirmation of Clarence Thomas on this anniversary of that confirmation vote? Does the behavior of Thomas prove that Anita Hill was right?
Yesterday, Arlen Specter died, a demon down. Of all Anita Hill's adversaries when she testified about Clarence Thomas's sexual harassment and generally disgusting values, Specter was the most relentless and rude of the interrogators. His disdain for her as a woman, as a black woman, oozed. Listening to him, a well-regarded democrat, stripped bare any pretenses that racial hatred and woman-hating were things of the past. In a twist of fate, on this day in 1991, the Senate confirmed Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court with a vote of 52-48. As a Justice, Thomas has disregarded disclosure rules, attended secretive Koch fundraisers, and exhibited other unethical behavior. Credo's calling for his impeachment. I believe Anita Hill.
I missed last night's debate, but all i know is that Biden has been in the Senate for years, was the head of the Senate Judiciary Committe and went to head to head with Sen. Arlen Specter during the Anita Hill hearings to try to block Clarence Thomas's appointment to the Supreme Court, and Ryan's an *** who spouts alot of nonsense that most people don't even believe (in.) SO, i think this is more important to circulate and share AFTER the debate than before! Please share!
