Democrats gone wild, 24 years later

While Democrats complain about partisan bickering and try to blame it on Republicans, today marks the 24th anniversary of the Democrats' war against Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork.  If Democrats had any sense of decency or shame prior to this war, they abandoned them.  Take, for example, Sen Kennedy's (D-MA) who declared:
Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is — and is often the only — protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy… President Reagan is still our president. But he should not be able to reach out from the muck of Irangate, reach into the muck of Watergate and impose his reactionary vision of the Constitution on the Supreme Court and the next generation of Americans. No justice would be better than this injustice.
None of that vitriol bears any resemblance to reality but that mattered not to Democrats.  Democrats have been in a state of unbridled anger unbound by any morality or ethics ever since.
