This Thomas Lady Has Some Freakin Balls!

Nearly two decades after their "she said, he said" public battle, Anita Hill and Justice Clarence Thomas are back in the news. The reason? Thomas' wife, Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, left a voice mail message seeking an apology from Hill

An apology from Hill?

Oh, yeah, sorry Mrs. Thomas. Clearly I was in the wrong for being both a woman and attractive, thus forcing your husband to drool creepily on me, show me porn, and joke about gross pubes. I sure hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me!

In a statement to CNN, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas said: “I did place a call to
Ms. Hill at her office extending an olive branch to her after all these years,
in hopes that we could ultimately get passed [sic] what happened so long ago.
That offer still stands

Um, I don't think you understand what the term "olive branch" means.

Extending an olive branch would go something more like "Hey, I know my gross creepy husband got all skeevy with you a while back, but that doesn't mean you and I can't be friends!"

Or "I'm really sorry that my husband is a predatory pig-man. And I'm sorry that telling the truth about his loutish behavior resulted in your being slandered and defamed in a lot of horrible ways. Say the word and I'll kick him repeatedly in the balls while shouting 'this is for Anita!'"

Asking passive-agressively for an apology from the woman your husband mistreated, not really an "olive branch."
