Oh, very big news, everyone. Over 100 former clerks to Justice Clarence Thomas have signed an open letter announcing that Thomas is just great, nothing to see here, no corruption so everyone needs to shut up about that.
Fox “News” is boosting the story, and it helpfully includes the actual letter itself, which is … wow, a whole lot of not much, actually. In general, when you’re defending someone against charges of accepting improper favors from people who, say, purchase his mother’s house, fix it up and let her live there rent-free in preparation for turning the site into a museum of Why Clarence Thomas Is Great, you’d want to include some actual defenses.
But the Clarence Thomas Is Great Club skips all of that. Instead, most of the letter is a retelling of Thomas’ entire life story. It’s a story of hardship and more hardship and being inspirational until now, finally, he’s at the top of the American hierarchy and gets to be friends with people who own yachts.
