In June 2010, Bork spoke on a conference call for reporters against the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan. She was an activist, he said, with the “inflated dreams” of a young lawyer. She had no experience on the bench. She lacked a “mature” view of the law. Americans United for Life, an anti-abortion group, sponsored that conference call, but not to hear from Robert Bork, respected jurist. They were presenting Robert Bork, living symbol. The first to get borked.
