Does Bork want Miers Borked?

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."

"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."
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?
