Graciousness: I Haz It

Mrs. Clarence Thomas extends the hand of conditional forgiveness:

In a voice mail message left at 7:31 a.m. on Oct. 9, a Saturday, Virginia Thomas asked her husband’s former aide-turned-adversary to make amends. Ms. Hill played the recording, from her voice mail at Brandeis University, for The New York Times.

“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.”


In a statement conveyed through a publicist, Ms. Thomas confirmed leaving the message, which she portrayed as a peacemaking gesture. She did not explain its timing.

“I did place a call to Ms. Hill at her office extending an olive branch to her after all these years, in hopes that we could ultimately get past what happened so long ago,” she said. “That offer still stands. I would be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same. Certainly no offense was ever intended.”

What a good Christian woman, offering Ms. Hill the same kind of absolution that Dick Cheney offered to Harry Whittington for getting in the way of his shotgun.  And all Ms. Hill has to do is apologize for being sexually harassed by Ms. Thomas’s husband and then having her name dragged through the muck by his Republican buddies.  How could anyone be churlish and ungrateful enough to spurn such a kind and generous offer?
