I’m watching a great docu-series titled The Confirmation Chronicles that analyzes all of the huge semi-recent battles for Supreme Court nominations. The first episode is on the failed Bork confirmation.
I knew the general gist of the story but seeing the actual footage is priceless. There’s a moment when a Democrat ridicules Bork for mentioning that gender segregation exists and is reasonable in the case of male and female bathrooms.
“What are you suggesting, that somebody is going to propose unisex toilets?” the senator scoffs. “That’s ludicrous!”
Of course, five minutes later (in historical terms) his party started insisting that forcing girls and boys to pee in front of each other is an important civil right.
Also, I’m discovering that Biden was a total jerk his whole life. I didn’t know that. As I pointed out in my 2017 book, mass immigration is incompatible with historical memory.
