Hooray for Bork! He did not "Bork" and run but has decided to stand and fight. The 40 or so vocal organized minority special interest groups have carried the day so far with promotions and slick Madison Avenue advertising. But these anti-Bork senators are in for a surprise from the silent conservative majority who will now seek to get Judge Bork confirmed by the Senate and to regain control of the Senate in 1988 elections.
Yes, those who have predicted that the judge has "no chance" of being confirmed are in for a surprise.
Indeed, these senators will be awakened by hot letters, phone calls, and votes in 1988 from the activated silent majority.
No, the race in the Senate is not over until election time in 1988!
