Robert Bork, R.I.P.

Robert Bork died today.

By all accounts a superb lawyer and an 'original intent' constitutional scholar, he was denied a seat on the Supreme Court in 1987 because the Democrats lost their souls. How? by paying attention to the Senator who blatantly lied about Bork at his confirmation hearings. That man, who left an innocent young woman to drown in a river while he escaped to create an alibi and excuse, is the man the Democrats hold up as the best of their best.

That says it all...

    There's something seriously wrong with a country that not only condones but actively enables someone like Ted Kennedy as much and as long as he was. Yes, MA voters are notoriously bad, but this is not just a localized problem. Even if his constituents supported him, "Teddy" should have been seen as such an abomination by the country as a whole that his career at the national level should have been untenable. The media, of course, never came anywhere near treating him as it would have if he’d been a Republican, in which case his career would have undoubtedly ended with Chappaquiddick. My point is that an awful lot of people “lost their souls” a good while before the Bork hearings. Our current degeneracy has been incubating for quite a long time.

    Sadly you are right...

    I remember The Bork hearings and the utter hypocrisy of Ted Kennedy leading the charge to destroy a decent man just because he had different opinions. That's when the Democratic party lost me.
