Long Dong Silver

In 1991, Mitch McConnell, serving his second term as a Republican senator from Kentucky, voted to confirm Clarence Thomas, President George H.W. Bush’s for shit nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States. In so doing, McConnell rejected the clear and forthright accusations of sexual predation and harassment made by Anita Hill.

Hill was harassed by the Senate Judiciary Committee led by Sen. Joe Biden. She was specific in her charges against Thomas much in the same way the allegations are being made today against Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for senator in Alabama. McConnell finds Moore’s accusers credible. By implication, his vote rejected Hill’s charges against Thomas.

It would be interesting if McConnell would explain why he believes Moore’s accusers and rejected Hill’s charges. Seems clear that McConnell thinks Roy Moore is lying. Apparently, McConnell thinks sexual predators, surmise, are not inclined to tell the truth. One might well consider  whether in hindsight McConnell now believes he voted to add a low-life sexual predator to the highest court in the land. Some of us have no doubt about that.
