GQjock saidCrazy in what sense of the word?
I started this thread by writing "The lady has mental problems," and though I'm not sure I'd use the word crazy,
I think this incident does demonstrate mental problems.
Here's the message she left, "Good morning Anita Hill, it's Ginni Thomas. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.
"So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day."
And later she said, in explanation, "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 past what happened so long ago. That offer still stands. I would be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same. Certainly no offense was ever intended."
Now if I thought she was being insincere and was just trying to get at Anita Hill, I wouldn't necessarily say she had mental problems, or at least not serious ones. (Who doesn't have some sort of mental problems?) I'd just say she was being a bit of bitch.
But I do think she sincerely thinks that she was "extending an olive branch," even though you can hear the fury in her just by reading her words, without even hearing her say them.
And on what level of delusion does she function to think for one second that Hill's going to recant or apologize? Ginni Thomas is a woman who not only can't let go, but can't see reality.
I hasten to add that I'm not 100-percent convinced that everything did happen as Hill said. But to think that Hill's going to change her story now, or that this kind of clearly angry phone call (no matter how much Ginni Thomas thinks she's not angry) is going to persuade her to change it or even talk to Ginni Thomas, that's truly
This is basically what she said. "Hello, my dear friend. I'd like an apology and an explanation of why you did such a terrible thing to my husband. I'm concerned for your well-being because you're such a lying bitch that you'll surely burn in hell if you don't apologize and recant so I wanted to reach out to you. I'm extending an olive branch to you in all sincerity." That she seems to have no idea that what she did was extremely aggressive and confrontational, that she seems to think it was a loving gesture of concern, is delusional.
