"Robert Bork's America is a land in which women would be forced into back alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids, school children could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is - and is often the only - protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy."

goodnight, funnyman.

Know what is funny?  If he had been confirmed, Obama would be able to replace him with one of his socialist loving  buddies.

I'll never forget the time he wore that swan dress to the Academy Awards.

Jonah Goldberg was on FOX earlier, acting like this guy was Jesus Christ's brother.

Of course Saint Reagan was mentioned a lot.

Main claim to fame was a guy who fired the Watergate prosecutor for Nixon after two others refused to do so. Oh and wanting to return women's health care to the Middle Ages. And not getting confirmed for SCOTUS.

Pshaw. Like a Bork Supreme Court would permit an uppity colored person to become president.

Ignore the resident trolls. That aside, this man was dangerous. Politically, I'm glad to see they're finally dying off... As a real live person though, condolences to the family.

I don't mind the RIP meme. I kind of like it.

What I do hate? When people write RIP and "mean it". People write it all the time. You want someone to rest in peace? You cared so much for someone that you abbreviate it? You don't care. You're a jerk.
And what does "rest in peace" even mean? Did we not expect peace? Is there a war on terror even after death? Do we die and go to Baghdad? Are there mobile chemical weapons manufacturers that we need to attack?
Or will there be tossing and turning? Is the guy buried next to him playing the stereo a bit too loudly? I'm at a loss.
 
2012-12-19 11:04:51 AM
The article is right...Bork looked like a major asshole on television. In ' 87 I remember hoping his nomination would fail just based on his appearance.
 
2012-12-19 11:05:13 AM
Robert Bork was a unscrupulous douchebag. As the short bio mentioned, he fired the watergate prosectuor at behest of Richard Nixon. He betrayed every principled and ethical position of the law for his own personal political gain and conservative ideology. He never came to terms with the fact that he ruined his own reputation and instead became embittered and retreated even further into wing-nut far right political fantasy - after all, only the most diehard conservative shills could possibily stomach association with an outright two faced hypocrite like Bork.

So, are we supposed to know and care because the guy was a backwards thinker that was feared that he uphold his personal views before upholding the Constitution?

Anyone want to tell me why the confirmed Scalia then?
