Failed Supreme Court Justice nominee and reactionary wingnuttian hero Robert Bork has shuffled off to his reward. This is one of those cases where the Senate’s Advise and Consent clause worked out in our favor by borking Bork.
However, Bork probably got the last laugh: Fat Tony was the one who was approved almost immediately without much discussion, following Bork’s extraordinary flame-out.
The only nice thing I can think to say about this excrescence is that the man was sound on the subject of martinis. Fair Warning: the link takes you to NRO, the most intellectually dishonest rest stop on the Information Super Highway.
