Bork Doesn't Seem to Know Beans

Jesus effing crapdoodle, Robert Bork is out of his mind.

Here's a little Q&A with him from this week's new-and-improved(?) Newsweak.

The highlights? You're going to love this one. It's a gem.

Q: As it's currently composed, this is sometimes called a conservative court.
A: I don't see it at all. It's a very left-leaning, liberal court.

HUH? Rub your eyes, pinch yourself and read it again.

And here's another bit that didn't make the print edition but is in the online Extended Dance Mix of Stupid.

[T]he court has moved so far to the left that any correction back to the proper central position would look like conservative activism to some people.

Holy shit. I don't know what to say about that. Except holy shit.

We are more fortunate than ever that this nutjob isn't on the Supreme Court. Things are bad enough already without someone who thinks that the most reliably reactionary court in U.S. history has somehow strayed way to the left. Yowza.

Newsweek rightly called this tidbit "The View from 1987", because this dude is living in the past.
