A Massachusetts Democrat running for the U.S. House has promised to impeach Justice Clarence Thomas if elected.  State Sen. Barbara L’Italien, in other words, is absolutely unhinged from reality.  The Washington Times has the details:

At Justice Thomas’s confirmation hearings in 1991, Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill accused him of sexual harassment — one of the first such cases made against a public figure. Justice Thomas vehemently denied the charges, calling them a “high-tech lynching” against an “uppity” black man.

Numerous women who’d worked with Justice Thomas said the graphic accusations from Ms. Hill were not credible to them.

But according to Ms. L’Italien, there is “considerable evidence that Thomas lied under oath” about sexually harassing Ms. Hill.

This is the first congressional candidate to call for Justice Thomas‘ impeachment, according to Ms. L’Italien’s spokesperson, who apparently doesn’t yet realize that there’s a very good reason no other candidates are doing this.  Because Ms. L’Italien doesn’t have to power to impeach Clarence Thomas.

Hey, let’s play Democratic Limbo… how low can you go?

Lower, lower, lower…
