    Justice Clarence Thomas documentary.

    I just watched a PBS documentary on the life of Clarence Thomas. It was powerful and emotional. That man has endured things which most people can't imagine.

    Everyone should watch this. He's a great man.

    Thomas said something about his confirmation hearing which was quite funny.


    Biden was the chairman of senate judiciary committee at the time. Thomas said that when Biden started his comments and questions Thomas said that he had no idea what Biden was talking about. Then they showed a clip of Biden making his comments. He was nonsensically rambling about natural law and Thomas was looking like he was trying to hold back from laughing at him.

    Why does that remind me of Schumer and Kavannaugh.

    About 8-10 (?) years ago, I was motorcycle (tent) camping in a nearly empty campground, just settled in against a cool October Indiana night with my wonderful wireless radio for company. I don't know what radio show it was I was listening to, but it was an interview with Clarence Thomas about his appointment and SC tenure up to that time, and I was stunned at how he berated the office -- how bored he was with that job and how beneath his capability and intelligence it all was to him.

    I'm sure this will rankle every conservative on the board, but I have not liked him since, no matter his politics. He's an arrogant, unappreciative $#@!. I can't find any information about that interview, however. I didn't dream it, and I'm sure it was Thomas being interviewed. Anyone else hear it?

    My only thought was, $#@! you.

    I never have gotten that same impression. I don’t think he believes he’s a big shot sitting on the supreme court.
