The Right Coast: Biden puffery Tom Smith

"The Bork hearings were a national disgrace. They were a low point of left-wing McCarthyism, but that is too kind. If they managed to convince members of the public that what's in the Constitution doesn't depend on its words, so much the worse. The Bork hearings wrecked what was left of the comity among people with different views of the constitution. They were a show trial, with the same level of integrity and perversion of legal forms.

Rosen is right about one thing. We do well to remember Biden's role in them, and I do."
