" The last two appointments to the Supreme Court would barely qualify to clerk for the likes of Robert Bork. Agreed. But JUST barely.

I'm a half step above amature in Constitutional Law and I do not believe Judge Bork would have considered either of them as clerks. In fact their LSAT scores would haqve given him pause in accepting them as students.

Well, that's true, isn't it?

Not only that but he would have easily recognized that their spirit and their animating philosophy wasn't in adherence with the same animating philosophy as the men who wrote the original document, and that, more than anything else, would have immediately disqualified either of them in Judge Bork's judicial mind.

Sadly, the upper echelons of our government and society are now top heavy with such monstrous legal temperaments and perspective.

As the credits begin to roll on the year 2012, I would like to take proper note of the recent loss of one of America’s most compelling figures, Judge Robert Heron Bork.  Robert Bork died on December 19 in Arlington, Virginia at the age of 85 due to complications of heart disease.
