Check out this hilarious article on Time.com by ’90s woman Belinda Luscombe about the intense stupidity of Ginni Thomas’ reconciliation attempt (“I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something”). It starts:
Virginia Thomas has done the nation a great service. In calling up Anita Hill, now a Brandeis law professor whose calm but graphic accusations of sexual harassment put the eeew in Clarence Thomas’s Seeewpreme Court confirmation hearings 20 years ago, Ginni, as the Justice’s wife is known, has provided a casebook example of how not to effect a reconciliation.
I think there’s a broader message in here about how people who don’t fully understand what happened in the ’90s are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the ’90s.
