Robert Bork and Ted Kennedy

Robert Bork is dead at 85.  To the extent that Ted Kennedy was ever worthy of any respect after he left Mary Jo Kopechne to die in his car, he forfeited all of it with his ugly, vicious defamation of Robert Bork during Bork's confirmation hearings in 1987.  The verb "to bork" is a legacy of Kennedy's that continues to haunt the nation a quarter of a century later.
