Bork, RIP

To adapt the despicable Senate denunciation: Robert Bork’s heaven is a land where women no longer face the painful choice of abortion, blacks sit anywhere they like, police lay down their weapons, schoolchildren sleep in the arms of their Savior — and Ted Kennedy is not present.

    May he rest in peace.

    This sounds awful, and it is awful, but one of my first reactions to the news of his death was relief that he was not on the Supreme Court, since President Obama would then get to choose his replacement.

    My next reaction was shame for such an unworthy thought — we sorely could have used his brilliance in SCOTUS over the last two-and-a-half decades.

    He would have lived longer, being on the court, being exercised by slaying the darkness of his fellow Supremes.

    With regard to the vocation of one Teddy… May he be present and serve his masters well.

    Here I Stand.
