In 1987 I was 40 yrs old. I was politically ignorant/uninterested/uninvolved. I was in Dallas, Texas. Talk radio was becomming more popular. My job required going to customer locations. In the car, I was GLUED to the radio and the hearings and discussions about them. I wondered WHY are they crucifying this man? I became politically aware. I am HARD CORE CONSERVATIVE AMERICAN. In the 25+ years since, I have educated myself. God forgive me but, I cheered at the death of Kennedy. And isn't it ironic that if Bork had declared himself an athiest, he would TODAY be cheered. But, it was not politically correct back then. He was demeaned for an apparant lack of religious beliefs.

It has always annoyed me that this POS Kennedy was treated like some elder statesman entitled to deep respect. I have always said that there is nothing we can do about the idiots in MA sending this POS back to office every 6 years. If Kennedy had humbly served his time and not been such a bombastic, hypocritical loudmouth, that would have been tolerable. However, he is the Poster Boy for ill manners and hypocrisy. Lastly,, the worst offenders in this were the MSM. Sure MA thrust this POS back on us every 6 years, but that didn't mean that the MSM had to give Kennedy a platform. Embarrassing. If he was a Republican (think Joe McCarthy for comparison) he would have been forced off the stage and humiliated-not honored!!!!

Most of us would be honored to have our name become a verb. Especially those of us in public life. But that is not how Judge Robert H. Bork got into the dictionary. He was "borked" when President Reagan nominated him to the U.S. Supreme Court. No sooner had the announcement been made by the White House on July 1, 1987, than Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) raced to the Senate floor to denounce the distinguished judge and former Yale Law Professor.

In Robert Bork's America, Kennedy roared, blacks would once again sit in the back of the bus, rogue...
