In "Judge Bork was a champion of rule of law" (Opinion, Dec. 22), Brent Hatch claims that Robert Bork would have been a perfect choice for the Supreme Court, where he could enforce "the neutral, non-political application of the law."
Makes you laugh. As the title of Bork's book Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline reveals, he was a conservative zealot. His confirmation would have been a disaster.
Rather than observing "the rule of law," Bork would have supported his own agenda of restoring the true America a right-wing paradise where women and minorities know their place, welfare doesn't exist and Rush Limbaugh feels right at home.
