I strongly reject the assertion that there was ANY "legitimate" reason to oppose Bork. What does the author think of Ginsberg or Kagan? Great legal minds who recognize that the law "lives"? That is the very position that the anti-constitution activists take, and it is a tragic mistake. We need to get back to the discipline that will protect our rights.

Bork, v., trans., "To defame or vilify (a person) systematically, esp. in the mass media, usually with the aim of preventing his or her appointment to public office; to obstruct or thwart (a person) in this way."

--Oxford English Dictionary in an entry dated March 1992.
