Am I the only one who noticed that ex-Nixon lawyer John Dean’s article “John Dean Knows How to Get Rid of Clarence Thomas” [1] concludes thus: “In short, nothing is going to happen to Clarence Thomas.” Talk about false advertising!

But Dean left out of consideration one strategy, the same one that five years ago he argued against pursuing with Bush and Cheney, whom many of us at that time wanted removed from office. The strategy is the one now being advanced by RootsAction: Impeach Clarence Thomas [2].
