"I was being pursued not by bigots in white robes but by left-wing zealots draped in flowing sanctimony."

Clarence Thomas in the WaPo today

He unloads.

On Sen. Howard Metzenbaum:

"It would be kind to describe him as unlikable."

On Sen. Howell Heflin:

" . . . made me think of a slave owner sitting on the porch of a plantation house."

He compares then-Judiciary Chairman Joe Biden (D-Neil Kinnock) "to the lying hypocrites in the old song 'Smiling Faces Sometimes' by Undisputed Truth."
