Memo to President Bush: Nominate Bork!

Judge Robert Bork has a thoughtful and scathing editorial on OpinionJournal this morning regarding the Judiciary and their proper role in the three branches of government:
"Once the justices depart, as most of them have, from the original understanding of the principles of the Constitution, they lack any guidance other than their own attempts at moral philosophy, a task for which they have not even minimal skills. Yet when it rules in the name of the Constitution, whether it rules truly or not, the court is the most powerful branch of government in domestic policy. The combination of absolute power, disdain for the historic Constitution, and philosophical incompetence is lethal."

I know he's not young, and I know it would be a bloody battle, but wouldn't it be great if President Bush nominated Bork as Chief Justice? Give they guy another chance! And let's see if after proper reflection, Senator Spector repeats his shameful performance of 1987.
