Yes, Santa, There Is A Virginia (Thomas)

They're reporting that Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas (of whom I am an unabashed fan) left a voicemail message on Anita Hill's cel phone asking her to apologize for what she, Anita, did to Justice Thomas during the Thomas confirmation hearings.

Bad move, Virginia.

Look, I'd be chewing nails over the events 20 years ago too if I were you. I can't blame you for being still angry. She slimed your husband and you are right to be ticked.

But leaving a voice mail message? On something so consequential?

No. class.

A letter in an official letterhead envelope, letter handwritten and personally addressed, is what might have been called for.

But a voice mail?

You are an extremely sophisticated political operative, madam; you can do much better than that.

Please, don't embarass us like that.
