Yes Virginia, there is a Ganja Clause
"Ginny, I'm sorry your husband got his pubes on my coke."
Last week Virginia Thomas, the teabagging wife of one of the most incompetent Supreme Court Justices in history - Clarence Thomas, called Anita Hill and asked her to apologize to her husband for her "false and misleading" testimony during his confirmation hearings.
Hearings that were held in 1991. Nineteen years ago.
To be brief, Ms. Hill was dragged in front of Congress (she did not want to testify) during the Thomas hearings and told the sitting senators (including Vice President Biden) that Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her while she worked for him as a clerk. The testimony was explosive and graphic - complete with coke cans, pubic hairs and pornography.
Ms. Hill was treated abominably and publicly humiliated by the Senate (especially Arlen Specter) and basically called a liar. In the end, Thomas was confirmed by a vote of 52-48. Later on, Senator John Danforth, who sponsored Thomas - said he regretted how the Senate treated Hill.
It goes without saying, Virginia Thomas' recent actions are nothing short of bizarre, inappropriate and truly delusional. Dredging up the past at this point, leaving a message like that on an answering machine and calling at 645am - none of this rings of a shred of common decency or normal behavior.
But remember Virginia Thomas is an activist teabagger who is married to one very angry man (read excerpts from his book). The fact that a Supreme Court justice's (albeit a pitiful excuse for a justice) wife is a conservative activist smacks of major conflicts of interest. But in this age of no-accountability and anything-to-win, none of this comes as a surprise.
So yes Virginia, there is a Ganja Clause* all for you.
(sung to "Do You Hear What I Hear?")
Said the teabag nut to the College Prof,
"I don't see what you see"
Not upon the can of Coke, College Prof
"I don't see what you see"
What pube, What pube, taped upon the can
From a dong as long as John
From, a dong as long as John."
Said the College Prof to the teabag nut,
"Did I hear what you said?"
Ring my phone at 6am, teabag nut
Did I hear what you said?"
Apologize, admit I made it up
Your nerve tis big as Long John Dong,
You should throw away that bong.
Said the teabag nut to the silent judge,
"Did I do the right thing?
You were lynched, you did no act
Did I do the right thing?
Our prez, Our prez, A socialist in fact
You nine should force to show proof of birth
Or this country will leave the Earth
Said the College Prof to the FBI
"Listen to what she said!
An olive branch to admit your guilt ,
Listen to what she said!
The 'baggers, the 'baggers, insane up to the hilt
They will bring us sadness to mourn
While he will bring us nothing but porn.
This is the cost of allowing ultra-conservatives to mainstream their psychoses. Ginny Thomas' behavior is consistent with the rightwing belief that they are better and always right - that even behavior anb average person would deem offensive is owed an apology from people they see beneath them.
*Ganja Clause - a mythical figure said to visit stoners that have been good in the last year. Ganja Claus is most often pictured as a jolly old rasta with long dredlocks, dressed head to toe in green. He flies through the sky on a lawn chair pulled by 8 giant sloths.
