Getting Borked

I see via CapitolBuzz that Bork was on TV cricizing the retiring O'Connor, presumably for the relative nonconservatism of her opinions.

Does it strike anyone as even remotely possible that Bush might actually nominate Bork himself to replace O'Connor?

It would be in keeping with the "up yours" nomination style the administration has employed for the UN, SEC and lower courts already, would continue the trend of rescuscitating the careers of conservative heroes/criminals from the Reagan era (think Negroponte, Poindexter) and would naturally give Republicans the opportunity to avenge one of their most bitter defeats from the eighties. And not coincidentally, the Dobson-Perkins-Santorum wing of the party would love it.

I wouldn't put it past them.
