Not too pleased

Mona Charen comments on the disingenuousness of those who seem surprised that Justice Thomas’ new book adopts an angry tone towards those who attempted to destroy his reputation before a worldwide audience. Charen notes that while there is anger in the book, “there is also tenderness, vulnerability, brutal honesty. . .overflowing gratitude [and] unswerving intellectual integrity.” As I wondered last weekend, do Thomas’s liberal critics expect him to depict the assault on his character by Senate Dems as a sitcom?
The reaction of Nina Tottenberg, Ruth Marcus, etc. reminds me of the following old joke:

Farmer: “I had to shoot my dog.”
Neighbor: “Was he mad.”
Farmer: “He wasn’t too pleased.”
