BLUMENTHAL URGES CLINTON TO SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT OF JUSTICE THOMAS: According to the Daily Caller, the latest batch of released Hillary Clinton emails reveals a telling one: Clinton’s top confidant, Sid Blumenthal, urged Clinton to support the impeachment of Justice Clarence Thomas, forwarding to her a 7-page “memorandum” penned by David Brock, the founder of Media Matters, and a self-proclaimed defender of Hillary Clinton.

The political left’s hatred of Justice Thomas is legendary, with the only black Supreme Court Justice routinely being called an “Uncle Tom” for holding conservative/libertarian views. But Blumenthal’s email to Clinton in October 2010 shows that the left was still actively scheming to ruin Thomas, trying to build a case for impeachment.

The utter ridiculousness of the effort is patent. Thomas’s impeachable “high crime and misdemeanor” offenses? According to New York Times and Washington Post hit pieces relied upon by Brock, women (including a former girlfriend) who were interviewed indicated that Thomas had an apparent interest–prior to being confirmed as a Justice–in pornography, and a healthy sexual interest in the opposite gender.

Um, so basically the left wanted to impeach Thomas because he was a red-blooded American male? Well, I guess that’s in keeping with the left’s utter hostility to all things male. But please, this is all you’ve got on Thomas? Yawn.
