Bork Her Back

Elena Kagan thought the divisive supreme court hearings on the nomination of Judge Bork were just ducky. Would that the GOP was prepared to Bork her back.

Ever since his nomination collapsed in an angry ideological confrontation, conservatives and liberals have mobilized forces with regularity to advance or tear down would-be justices. “Anything you seeing the left doing, the right can do,” Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a Republican member of the Judiciary Committee, is shown saying at one point, effectively linking the Bush-era fights to the future Obama presidency. “And if there’s a Democratic president, anything that you think is out of bounds or makes you feel uncomfortable, we can do the same thing.”
It's a dirty business, which makes one wonder why the GOP goes so easy on liberal nominees.
