Default Re: The Week in Blog: Hug It Out (Bill Scher & Matt Lewis)

"In fact, the fight over Bork's nomination, noisy and voluble as it was, never departed from the issues of constitutional interpretation..."

Smile when you say that.

"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, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens."

This is related to "issues of constitutional interpretation" in the same way that calling Obama a Marxist is a fair critique of his financial and health care policies.

As for Clarence Thomas, for me at least, his comments to Anita Hill pale next to the antics of our 42nd President. As discussion of Elena Kagan's sexual orientation pales besides the hatchet job done on Thomas' personal life by "respectable" journalists Jill Abramson and Jane Mayer in the appalling "Strange Justice."
