The Bork Defeat, Down the Years

This piece by law professor Gary McDowell recounts the painful rejection of Judge Robert Bork, twenty years ago today.

And through the narrative of the Bork loss -- and arguing that conservatives inadvertantly saved Roe v. Wade -- Jeffrey Lord reminds all conservatives unwilling to be pleased by any GOP presidential candidate what the results can be of "a full loaf or nothing" mentality.

The tragedy is that because Judge Bork was not confirmed, we can only think of what would have been. When Chief Justice Rehnquist was alive, along with Scalia and Thomas and then the addition of Roberts and Alito, a solid conservative majority would have been on the court. There would have been sane decisions instead of tortured 5-4 decisions based partially on "international law."
