The Left's smear campaign against Bork in the 80's was much like the Obama campaign's 2012 character assassination of Mitt Romney. Their MO is to dig and dig for dirt, and if they don't find any, they make stuff up. With the help of their lapdog media, they sow the seeds of doubt into enough weak minds, and voila! Victory! As everyone knows, digging up, and then publishing, real dirt on his two opponents running for the U.S. Senate in Illinois was how Barack Obama became a U.S. Senator in the first place. At any rate, seeing anything about Judge Bork always reminds me what a lying, hypocritical scoundrel Kennedy was. But I have no doubt that these days Bork is in a much higher place than Kennedy is.
