    Rush was talking about the vile verbal beating he took from the left during his confirmation hearings in the late 80s. He thinks that was the beginning of the character assassination tactics from the left. It’s just gotten worse.

    Yes, this is sad news. FOX had a grandkid of his on today, and the grandkid said talking to his grandfather was always something he looked forward to – cause they’d have interesting conversations. I can only imagine.

    Another reason to hate Teddy Kennedy, as if we needed any more.

    He was exactly what the left wing hated; A judge who interpreted the law rather than imagined it.

    His last name is a verb; to Bork someone is to have a politburo of communists abuse and discard you in a character assassination.

    The man stood up the the filthy insects though, took it like a real man.

    Yes. A brilliant American died today.

    Ted Kennedy is sober 1212 days today.

    Joe Biden was appointed to clean up crime in America, by January,by Obama, today.

    “Borked” The systematic villification of a person.

    President Reagan nominated Robert Bork to the Supreme Court. Next day on the Senate Floor, the drunkard Kennedy told the American people that Bork would have women getting abortions in back alleys and blacks would be back in chains.
    Biden picked up on it and the Media ran with it.
    None could shine his shoes.

    Mark Levin did a beautiful tribute to him today. And made the point that had he actually been appointed, obmama would be appointing a new judge in his place.

    “Slouching Towards Gomorrah.” Modern Liberalism and American decline. Robert H. Bork.

    We have arrived.

    I hope Teddy is burning in hell.

    He was a great man who would have made a fine surpreme court justice.

    Here is one of my favorite quotes;

    “Bill and Hillary were both students of mine (at Yale). But I no longer say they were students of mine, but that they were in the room.”

    He recognized what pieces of crap they were then and still are now.

    Rest in peace your honor.

    Wow. I didn’t realize Ted the Swimmer had been gone that long. On the other hand, that means Bork had over 1200 opportunities to piss on Teddy’s grave. But since Teddy’s buried in Arlington and Bork is a man of honor, he probably didn’t. (But isn’t it nice to know you COULD??)

    I consider Bork the most brilliant legal mind of my lifetime. What a travesty that his talents were never utilized – he would have been one of the best SCOTUS justices ever. I hope Ted is able to look over the great abyss from hell and can see Mr. Bork in Paradise, hang his miserable head in shame and finally admit, ” Robert, I was so wrong, and you were so right.”

    I will never forget what was done to this noble man! Please, please read his book, “Slouching Towards Gomorrah,” one of the best books of the 20th century. What vile, hate-filled devils who made sure he did not grace the Supreme Court….! That alone told me that our culture was on death row. God bless his family. What a sad Christmas – those precious babies and now Mr. Bork…. I can see this dear man already holding these babies in his arms.
