Part of the attacks on Bork were the printing of his video rental history by a newspaper. The attacks on Kagan you and Matt were talking about were criticisms of her personal life printed in a newspaper. Yes, the part of the confirmation process that takes place in the Senate chamber may have changed, but the fact that aspects of a nominee's private life irrelevant to their legal philosophy are part of the public debate is nothing new.
Remember Anita Hill, Clarence Thomas and the famous pubic hair on the soda can incident?
