Joe Nocera and Robert Bork
I'm catching up now on Joe Nocera's column from last weekend saying Robert Bork was really not very extreme at all, and it is congressional Democrats who started the gridlock craziness in opposing Bork.
You can't make this stuff up. The shame is that this is the NY Times op-ed page. They can get anyone they want. They have some good people. Some people who know what they're talking about. And some who don't. It's not like there is a shortage of smart people out there.
Nocera has just been a joke, period.
