Looks like Justice Bork got the last laugh or should we say Justice Bork, borked the democrats in the end. Justice Kennedy now sits in that Supreme Court.

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...
