Why is this news?

In a move as surprising as the bear's decision to crap in the woods, Judge Robert Bork thinks Judge Sonia Sotomayor is unqualified to be a Supreme Court Justice.

I know what you're thinking--Robert Bork is still alive?

The whole interview is a piece of work, but in order to get a real sense of just where Bork is on the spectrum of of judicial philosophy, one question pretty much sums it up.

As it's currently composed, this is sometimes called a conservative court.

I don't see it at all. It's a very left-leaning, liberal court.
I keep trying to imagine what Judge Bork would consider a centrist court, and I keep getting the Blue Screen of Death combined with the Spinning Wheel of Waiting Hopelessly flashing before my eyes.
