The term "Borked" or "Borking" originated with conservative talk show hosts (primarily Rush Limbaugh) to describe someone who is denied something earned simply because they either aren't politically correct enough or aren't trusted - usually without cause. The usage is derived from Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork who though eminently qualified was deemed too "conservative" to serve as a Supreme Court judge.
Harriet Meyers was "borked" by distrustful conservatives. NARAL "borks" any candidate that isn't "pro-choice". Radio stations around the country are "borking" the Dixie Chicks.
