PSSSSST, middle class white ladies! Huddle up! Let’s talk about this Jill Abramson piece in yesterday’s NYMag where she advocates impeaching Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. “Do You Believe Her Now?” asks the headline, under photos of Anita Hill and Justice Thomas swearing the oath at his confirmation hearing in 1991. Since you’re asking, Jill, yeah we believe her now. We believed her then, too! So should we take to the streets and demand that the Republican Senate replace a 69-year-old Justice on a mission to destroy women’s rights with a 32-year-old version of the same?


Abramson lays out in meticulous detail all the credible allegations of harassment from Hill and several other women. It’s gross, he’s gross, and these women’s careers were clearly harmed. Then she demands that Thomas be impeached, not because of that harm, but because he lied about it to Congress.

[B]ecause of the lies he told, repeatedly and under oath, saying he had never talked to Hill about porn or to other women who worked with him about risqué subject matter.

Lying is, for lawyers, a cardinal sin. State disciplinary committees regularly institute proceedings against lawyers for knowingly lying in court, with punishments that can include disbarment. Since 1989, three federal judges have been impeached and forced from office for charges that include lying. The idea of someone so flagrantly telling untruths to ascend to the highest legal position in the U.S. remains shocking, in addition to its being illegal. (Thomas, through a spokesperson, declined to comment on a detailed list of queries.)

Yes, it is shocking and illegal. Yes, speech is free and we’re all entitled to say any damn thing we want. But sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we spend 10 seconds thinking about the fallout from our provocative truthtelling, and we don’t use our public platform to risk other women’s health and safety. Sometimes we call up our sister instead and shout, “How the hell do we have a Supreme Court Justice who lied under oath to Congress? They oughta boot that guy out of there!”

And then we let the matter drop.

Because we remember five minutes after Justice Scalia died when Mitch McConnell vowed to hold his seat open for the rest of Obama’s presidency. And we watched Republicans kill the filibuster rule to install that vanilla reactionary Gorsuch on the Court. We know damn well that if a movement to impeach Thomas ever took hold, Republicans would jump at the chance to get someone younger and stupider in his place. And we know that we, you and me, Jill, will not be the ones to pay the price.

Because we are white women, married to white men, and our marriages are safe. Because we’ve already had our children, and won’t be personally affected if abortion becomes illegal. Because no one stops and frisks a middle-aged white lady. Because we’re not about to be deported. Because we live in blue states, with good schools where no one teaches kids that God created the earth in a week and requires abstinence until marriage. Because we live near excellent hospitals. Because when we put a glass under the tap, clean water comes out. Because no matter what happens with the court, we will be okay, and so will our children.

But if you give Republicans an excuse to install some kid from the Federalist Society at the Supreme Court, they will take it! And people like us, Jill, have no business idly speculating on the propriety of getting rid of a 69-year-old Supreme Court Justice, no matter how bad he is. The cost is too high, and it will be born by younger, browner, poorer women.

You know who does have a right to make that argument? Anita Hill. And Moira Smith. And Angela Wright Shannon. They have a right to ask for an accounting without worrying what it costs the country, because they paid the price 27 years ago when Thomas was confirmed. (And, by the way Joe Biden, we’ll be thinking about your disappointing conduct in those hearings if you decide to throw your hat in the ring again in 2020!)

But you and me, Jill? No. Not our time. Not our turn.

    First win back the House and Senate, then impeach both Trump and Pence, then and only then can President Pelosi nominate a replacement for disgraced Justice Thomas.

    • can we impeach Eddie Munster and Yertle also, too? I’ll write a letter to Santa and everything.

        Okay, but only if the indictment includes the phrase, “They were warned, it was explained to them, and still they persisted.”

      If, in 2019, the (House and Senate majority) Democrats first impeach and

    • Mondoshawan

      I have been thinking the same thing for a while now. We need major and continuous improvement, but only by taking small enough and carefully calculated steps will we preserve the progress we are trying to make. The good must be secured before we try for better and best. No matter how lofty the goal or how appealing the alternative seems at first glance, if there is a chance of sliding past the status quo in any area further back into the swamp, it is massively not worth the risk.
      I was downright elated to see Obama elected and reelected. It is terrifying how much resentment the deplorables came to harbor against the man, overlooking the fact that he was trying to make it so nobody in the society gets fucked over, and just because he happened to have more melanin than them. It is truly sickening how easily everything went in the other direction.

      • Anna Rompage

        Kind of like how McCabe was driven out of his job because his wife ran for office once, and took money from a Clinton backer SuperPAC… Then again, Clarence Thomas’s wife is a heavily involved political operative, so does this mean he should step own due to the conflict of interest?

    • Anna Rompage

      Ah but it give the opposition a really nice way to call into question whether the information is accurate or not…

      Anyone looking at Steele’s resume sees that he’s an integrious guy, who was one of the top folks in his field, and that alone should give credence that the information is likely valid, but as you and I know, the GOP are a bunch of partisan hacks that put party their corporate donors over country…

  • Lord High theCryptofishist

    Just want to say that there was an interview of Mr. Thomas in the past few days in which he said something about people claiming victimhood, blah, blah, blah, and this from the guy who said he was the victim of a “high-tech lynching.”
    I know, as I say not as I do.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      That phrase – High Tech Lynching – always irritated me. Where was the ‘high tech” exactly? Oooh! You mean like video cameras in the Judiciary Committee chambers? Ooooh so high tech!


  • How astonishing, The Wasserstein family, whose little magazine hobby has been brocializing like a big swinging dick for a couple of years now, hired Jill Abramson, who carried NYT water on any number of conservative ratfucks and knew Thomas was a pig all this time, to try and start a groundswell.

    I’m shocked.

  • Spotts1701, Porg Wrangler

    I don’t like him either. I don’t think he deserves his place on the court, and I certainly believe that Justice Thurgood Marshall’s ghost laments that he was replaced by what amounts to a bump on a log.
    But then I look at the crop of radical reactionaries the Republicans are installing at the Circuit and Federal District courts. The ones that make Thomas look like Marshall at his best and Marshall look like a bomb-throwing anarchist. I don’t want any of them within 100 miles of the Court.

    But we can wait until the Dems get a 60% majority in the Senate, and then impeach him, right?

    I mean, assuming he doesn’t die in some sort of bizarre auto-erotic asphyxiation accident like his pal Scalia (ALLEGEDLY) before then.

    • Saxo the Grammarian

      Unless several Republicans are willing to do the right thing, we’d need 67 Democrats in the Senate.

        …and then President Hillary Clinton will appoint Senator Tim Kaine as VP to allow the universe to return to its intended path.

        • TorbyIsHere

          I like this story.

        • ScottGoode

          As a citizen of Virginia I think you need someone else instead of Kaine. I’ve had my issues with the man, going back to when he was mayor. But I could not stand yet another statewide contest to pick a Senator to replace him. I know the Governor picks an interim but there would be another chance for Ed Gillespe or Corey Stewart to invoke stupidity.

      • Tennessee Rain Genius

        You don’t need that middle step. Hillary can be appointed Speaker of the House and move directly into the presidency.

    • Walter Wellstone

      Yup. Let’s not give Donald any opportunity to appoint any more people to the SCOTUS. Let’s impeach Donald and Pence first, then let’s go after Thomas and, while at it, Alito. I can’t stand that motherfucker.

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        When Scaly was alive I liked to refer to the trifecta of horrid men in the SC as “Scalithomas,” because it encompassed all three of their names and made them sound like a cancer cell, which they are.

    Very well said. Self righteous anger is not the key to change–passionate advocacy with level headed strategy is.

        I agree. We’re all self righteous at times, sometimes for good reasons. If we can put our own ego aside and study clearly what needs to happen, then we can change things. A good example of someone who does this is our recent president.

  • TorbyIsHere

    And, by the way Joe Biden, we’ll be thinking about your disappointing conduct in those hearings if you decide to throw your hat in the ring again in 2020!

    This was my main take-away from the article.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Biden’s actions during that time were indeed reprehensible.

      • Begin Anew Day

        He screwed the pooch for sure.

        Still, if the choice for Preznint comes down to Joe with a yellow dog still impaled on his front grill and any thing from the GOP I am going to pat that yellow dog on the head, say “Good boy” and still vote for JOE!

        • Villago Delenda Est


        • Old Man Yells at Cloud

          Essentially a choice between “kicking the can down the road” vs “tying yourself to the rear bumper of a honeywagon going in the opposite direction”. That can is starting to look pretty sweet.

    • Relativicus

      Biden being forced to end a candidacy (a candidacy I don’t currently support, btw), or him not entering the race at all, due to the Thomas hearings would be such a Democrat thing to do it would almost be a “cliche”.

      Also, Thomas would still be on the court.

      • TorbyIsHere

        The problem I have with Biden isn’t just his behavior in the hearings. I don’t really think he’s taken full ownership of what he did, and I find things he’s said since then problematic at best.

        Glamour’s editor-in-chief, Cindi Leive, who was moderating the discussion, added a follow-up question: “Professor Hill has said herself that she expected a fair process and did not feel that she had one. Given your leadership on these kinds of issues, do you have any message to her now?”

        Said Biden: “The message I’ve delivered before is I am so sorry if she believes that,” he said “I am so sorry that she had to go through what she went through. Think of the courage that it took for her to come forward.”

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    I think stupidity must be spreading through the country like the flu. There’s dumb ideas, and then there’s “let Drumpf appoint another SC justice” dumb ideas. SMDH

    Agreed, but the “movement” to impeach Thomas would never take hold, sotheres little to worry about. We could see the next 100 Democrats resign due to public disclosure of nasty behavior and not have to sweat one minute’s discussion of Thomas or any other equally guilty GOP’er. Unless, maybe, if children were involved, and only then if the children were male.

      Tangential: after seeing Congressional Dem leadership and prominent Distinguished Colleagues — looking at you, Kirsten Gillibrand — hanging Franken out to dry over what has turned out to be an outrage campaign managed by Russian bots, I am exceedingly unlikely to support the next round of “we have to do the right thing and sacrifice one of our own, even though the Republicans will gleefully promote their worst offenders for no other reason than spite, to prove that we’re better than that” that will inevitably arise each and every time the loathsome conduct of some Republican toady comes up like this in the news.

      • Villago Delenda Est

        Gorsuch apparently has not made any friends. He should have someone taste his tea before he imbibes.

  • Good_Gawd_Yall

    I think there’s a better case to be made that none of Drumpf’s appointees to anything including the SC are valid or legitimate since he was not elected legitimately. Gorsuck needs to go, as do every other judicial appointee, the entire cabinet, and whatever WH chef is making the fake Big Macs for the screaming racist cantaloupe.

    • Courser_Resistance

      I’ve thought the samewas well, right from the start. Fruit of the poison tree,so to speak.

    • I sympathise, but you know that this was PRECISELY what the Birthers were campaigning for re: Obama, and what we hate about Trumpy (he just reverses everything Barry did on general principle)

      • Good_Gawd_Yall

        I disagree because despite the racists and the haters, Obama was born in this country and was legitimately elected. Dump may be reversing everything on “principle” but he was NOT legitimately elected and the idea that someone the Russians installed in our government should get to appoint a SC justice who will be there for decades is just wrong.

  • O/T but Chris Hughes, a Facebook co-founder, is calling for a Universal Basic Income of $500.00/mo for working people making less that $50k per year.

    In his new book called “Fair Shot” he puts up the math to show how a modest tax on those making over $250k per year it would save mountains of money for all taxpayers and provide a basic income to those who risk falling off the economic table.

      • He sat down with zuckerberg to talk over his percentage of Facebook ownership. He argued for 10% and ended up with only 2%.

        His poor negotiation skills only amounted to a payout of somewhere short of a billion $.

        So you’re right. With skills like that I’d suggest he’s better off working to combat economic sabotage.

      You better hope the oldest liberal justice lives for a very long time.

  • khanurik

    Point well taken. On the other hand, what do you say to all them coke cans out there with pubic hair on them? Is there to be no justice?

  • PincheMacha

    Respectfully disagree. It’ll take a long time to boot Thomas – by the time the scuzzy mofo was actually ousted, Pres Pelosi (2019-2020) or Pres Harris (2020-2028) could replace with a dream candidate. This might be a perfect time to get the ball rolling

    This is really weird because I was lying in bed last night trying to drop off to sleep and it occurred to me that one of many wonderful things we can do after we get a Democratic majority in Congress again is boot this motherfucker out and put Anita Hill in his place.

    • AuntyMaude

      Anita would be and inspired and long overdue pick.

  • Robyn Ryan

    Please don’t let Biden slide back in. We don’t need another white man.

    • What’s Merrick Garland doing these days?

  • svejk

    christ on a fucking crutch, people. senate impeaches judges. can’t do unto thomas what he so richly deserves until dems control the senate. by then it will be 2020 & dems will also control the presidency & the house. so no worries. ain’t no presididnet turnip nominating no thomas successor because the conditions for impeaching thomas won’t exist until turnip is gone. calm down & think it through.

    No, no, no. Leave Awful Clarence alone until after the midterms. Until then, we can’t do anything about it without getting some very young, very wingnutty, very religio-grifty bastard occupying his seat for the foreseeable future and then some.

    Not now. Thanks, $5F.

      Oh Right. That’s what I meant to say.

    Nice piece.

  • phoenix00

    WELLLLLLLLL did you also propose some dude by the name of Merrick Garland take Thomas’ seat? OH NO YOU DIDN’T.

    • Delu

      Merrick Garland was not qualified before he was even appointed because of the person who appointed him.

      It’s always about the PERSON to these people.

      • phoenix00

        Kinda makes you wonder which team they’re on, eh?

  • Mike Steele

    Jill Abramson, attempting to be relevant again, steps in it bigly. Thanks, $5.

  • Lulu’s Mom

    Good thing that *lying* is now perfectly OK! Everyone is doing it.
