Late Night: Pouting Baby Asks Why Mrs. Ginni T Makes Mean Phone Calls
Pouting Baby is talking to us again. -JW
When I read the newspaper on Tuesday, I learned that Mrs. Ginni T left a really funny message on the answering machine of Professor Hill. The message didn’t make any sense to me. Here’s what the paper said:
“Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” it said. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.”
Ms. Thomas went on: “So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day.”
I talked to some old people who remember what happened back when Creepy Clarence was talking about being an important judge. The people talking to Creepy Clarence brought in Professor Hill and asked her about when she and Creepy Clarence worked together. He sure did some creepy things, so I don’t see why Mrs. Ginni T thinks it is Professor Hill who should say she’s sorry.
I noticed that Mrs. Ginni T made her telephone call really early on October 9. That’s a Saturday. That’s a funny day and time to call a Professor in her office. But Mrs. Ginni T had had a very bad day the day before. Here’s what was in the newspaper on October 8:
For three decades, Mrs. Thomas has been a familiar figure among conservative activists in Washington — since before she met her husband of 23 years, Justice Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court. But this year she has emerged in her most politically prominent role yet: Mrs. Thomas is the founder and head of a new nonprofit group, Liberty Central, dedicated to opposing what she characterizes as the leftist “tyranny” of President Obama and Democrats in Congress and to “protecting the core founding principles” of the nation.
But to some people who study judicial ethics, Mrs. Thomas’s activism is raising knotty questions, in particular about her acceptance of large, unidentified contributions for Liberty Central. She began the group in late 2009 with two gifts of $500,000 and $50,000, and because it is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit group, named for the applicable section of the federal tax code, she does not have to publicly disclose any contributors. Such tax-exempt groups are supposed to make sure that less than half of their activities are political.
Maybe on October 8, Mrs. Ginni T turned into Mrs. Gin and T because she didn’t like what the newspaper said about her. It’s too bad her telephone wasn’t from Horizon:
