hypocrite watch: judge bork realizes it’s not so “frivolous” when it’s him that slips and falls

From the American Constitution Society blog:

…Judge Robert Bork, one of the fathers of the modern judicial conservative movement whose nomination to the Supreme Court was rejected by the Senate, is seeking $1,000,000 in compensatory damages, plus punitive damages, after he slipped and fell at the Yale Club of New York City. Judge Bork was scheduled to give a speech at the club, but he fell when mounting the dais, and injured his head and left leg. He alleges that the Yale Club is liable for the $1m plus punitive damages because they “wantonly, willfully, and recklessly” failed to provide staging which he could climb safely.

Judge Bork has been a leading advocate of restricting plaintiffs’ ability to recover through tort law…

This would be like Rick Santorum knocking up a prostitute and forcing her to get an abortion. It’s hypocricy at its finest.

    Only slightly less blatantly offensive than that judge suing the dry cleaners millions of dollars for losing a pair of freaking pants.

    His resistance was futile. Bork has been assimilated.

    I’m convinced that would have been funnier had I spelled frivolous correctly.

    What! Rick Santorum knocking up a prostitute and forcing her to get an abortion? Preposterous! That would be like Strom Thurmond knocking up an under age black girl or something. Come back to reality. I don’t know where you liberals get this stuff.

    Good analogy. I was trying to think of a good one, and all I kept coming up with were examples of “family values” Republicans leaving their wives for younger women. I knew that there were better analogies out there though. Thanks.

    And, for what it’s worth, the spelling mistake only makes it better.

    A reader who wants to remain anonymous (given the sensitive nature of her job), wanted to pass along this update on the infamous “pant suit” mentioned by Kathleen.
