The Angriest Justice?
At the time, Thomas called the attempt to derail his nomination a "high-tech lynching."
It was, at the very least, a well-documented conspiracy to commit character assassination.
The NYT's editorial page staff is alarmed that Thomas would recall his anger at being subjected to such a low and dirty campaign, one that was egged on by the Times itself.
It now says, Thomas should recuse himself from cases that involve the groups that sought to trash him personally to prevent his ascension to the court.
The NYT Editorial Page might want to think about recusing itself from weighing in on matters its writers feel so passionately about. Especially, when it comes to conservative black men about whom they have lost all sense of fairness or balance.
Those who know Thomas portray him to be a different sort of fellow from the one the Times editorialists and others seem to despise so much.
