Ann’s great-as-always article about the Kav nomination battle leaves out one historic nomination. Between Bork and Kennedy Reagan nominated Douglas Ginsburg.
When the senate “Borked” Robert Bork, Reagan next nominated federal judge Douglas Ginsburg, a libertarian law and economics type, and NPR then revealed that he smoked marijuana occasionally with his students at Harvard Law.
Ginsburg withdrew. Jon Lovitz played Ginsburg saying how “wrecked” he was while writing an influential law review article in an SNL sketch, “The Rolling Paper Chase.”
How weird! I have zero memory of this sketch! I'm fading!!! https://t.co/bTQ4ZKlpPJ— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) March 29, 2016
Reagan’s DOJ threw in the towel and cursed us with Justice Anthony Kennedy.
