    Bork thinks the 14th Amendment is 'un-Constitutional.'

    At age 85 it’s unlikely Bork would realize an appointment to the High Court, but in some sort of advisory capacity to Romney he could steer radical rightwing jurists to the Federal courts jeopardizing the civil liberties of every American.

    Janice and the Bork!

    Holy cow. It's almost enough to make me think we could save this Republic yet.

    I rep thee!

    Just to be clear on what getting "Borked" means.....

    to attack (a candidate or public figure) systematically, especially in the media.

    So, in effect, you are borking Romney.

    Not that I am surprised...you have appeared to be something of an ignorant twit.

    BTW: the smear was about a bunch of extrapolations. They really could not get him on his record. Joe Biden was in on the smear and in the middle of it he was exposed for plagurism.

    Get it right, asshole.

    Yep, Romney will use Bork to advise him on Supreme Court appointments. He thinks an employer can ask an employee to be sterilized, among other things.

    Why couldn't an employer ask this?
