They were right. In fact, "Getting Borked" became a buzzphrase for a reversal of fortune with no upward trajectory.
On Abovethelaw.com, lawyer-journalist Kathryn Rubino brings up that event in legal history. Bork was the most recent nominee to be get knocked out of the box.
Why Rubino is bringing it up is that the current conservation nominee Neil Gorsuch could, well, Get Borked.
Yes, Gorsuch is a smooth player. But that is unlikely to penetrate through the hardening feud between the GOPers and Democrats.
The unthinkable could happen: Gorsuch could not be confirmed.
The seat on the high court would remain vacant.
And the Trump Administration would suffer a major defeat.
Members of the Trumpetts would get it: They have to come up with a nominee not so much in the image and likeness of Antonin Scalia.
