Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Judge Bork for SCOTUS?

Okay, so it won't happen, and frankly I doubt Judge Bork would want to go through that gauntlet again. But at least we can have fun imagining the collective apoplexy of the radical left if Bush righted past miscarriages of justice and re-nominated our Law, Ethics, and Public Policy professor to the Supreme Court of the United States. Whatever you do, though, don't tell Arlen Specter and Diane Feinstein that on top of everything else he's a recent convert to Catholicism! Horrors!

Don't just imagine it...let your opinion be known! Go to The Onion, which has a poll on the far right column of the today's new homepage entitled If you were president, whom would you nominate to the Supreme Court? And behind door #3, with 18% of the vote at the moment? "Robert Bork, just to see if I could get away with it this time."

UPDATE: It's come to my attention that -- like much of the content on The Onion website -- this is not a real "poll." The results are carved in the Internet version of stone, and no amount of voting will change what cannot be changed. Judge Bork will be forever stuck at 18%, and the world will have to wait to learn what Onion readers really think of the idea of re-nominating the man who should be (Chief?) Justice Bork.
