Robert Bork was interviewed by Tucker Carlson and didn’t have good things to say about the Miers nomination:
TUCKER CARLSON, MSNBC HOST: Are you impressed by the president’s choice of Harriet Miers?
JUDGE ROBERT BORK, FORMER SUPREME COURT NOMINEE: Not a bit. I think it’s a disaster on every level.
CARLSON: Why? Explain the levels on which it’s a disaster.
BORK: Well, the first one is, that this is a woman who’s undoubtedly as wonderful a person as they say she is, but so far as anyone can tell she has no experience with constitutional law whatever. Now it’s a little late to develop a constitutional philosophy or begin to work it out when you’re on the court already. So that–I’m afraid she’s likely to be influenced by factors, such as personal sympathies and so forth, that she shouldn’t be influenced by. I don’t expect that she can be, as the president says, a great justice.
I agree with him, of course. But I still chuckle a bit at Bork, who would have been the ultimate disaster as a Justice, taking such shots at someone else.
