Former federal judge Robert Bork - whose nomination to the Supreme Court the Senate was rejected in 1987 - described the choice of Miers as "a disaster on every level."I know the usual definition of "borked" is when the opposition party defeats the nomination, but what is it called when the POTUS's own party rejects his nominee?
"It's a little late to develop a constitutional philosophy or begin to work it out when you're on the court already," Bork said on "The Situation" on MSNBC. "It's kind of a slap in the face to the conservatives who've been building up a conservative legal movement for the last 20 years."
