Instead of questioning the views of Clarence Thomas some of the Senate democrats used Anita Hill to try to block his appointment. Thomas told an off-color joke and Hill supposedly was offended. What does his questionable sense of humor have to do with his qualifications to sit on the high court? Anita Hill is a household name but not all of the story was publicized in the same manner. When Hill left the law firm and returned to DC she phoned Thomas from her hotel room. That certainly contradicts her detestation of Thomas. Why would she call a married man from her hotel room?
