When does the handwringing about Bork getting Borked begin?
Unlike soonergrunt, I’ve always felt that if you haven’t got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me.
In the meantime:
Robert Bork, Ronald Reagan’s one-time nominee to the Supreme Court, mumbles from beneath low-hanging jowls: “The coverage of this war is unbelievable. Even Fox News is unbelievable. You’d think we’re the only ones dying. Enemy casualties aren’t covered. We’re doing an excellent job killing them.”
Jeffrey Toobin says Bork “was an unrepentant reactionary who was on the wrong side of every major legal controversy of the twentieth century. The fifty-eight senators who voted against Bork for confirmation to the Supreme Court in 1987 honored themselves, and the Constitution. In the subsequent quarter-century, Bork devoted himself to proving that his critics were right about him all along.”
Remember, the dysfunctional state of American politics today is entirely the product of Dems blocking Bork’s nomination
