Judge Bork's Supreme Court Confirmation Hearing

September 25, 1987

Let me see if I can get this straight: Biden, the Democratic chairman of the committee, has recently admitted to plagiarism in law school; committee member Kennedy was penalized for cheating in law school, and committee member Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), was forced to resign his position on the House Intelligence Committee for leaking information to the press.

On the opposite side, there is Bork, former solicitor general, law professor and federal judge, none of whose opinions has been overturned by the Supreme Court. Compared to his inquisitors, Bork seems to be a man of impeccable integrity who is apparently splendidly qualified to be a Supreme Court judge. His week-long inquisition by the above political posturers is reminiscent of the lion swatting at flies on a hot summer afternoon.
