Picking judges-2009 Edition

The issue of judicial selection has started getting a little bit of coverage in this session. The Austin-American Statesman ran a story on judicial politics that covered some recent developments in reform.

Reading the comments from readers is always a risky choice. However, I thought it was particularly interesting that so many readers tried to make the case for keeping elections by writing foolish and angry comments. Nothing impresses me more than having someone tell me that I’m dumb as dirt for opposing the partisan election of judges. Perhaps these comments are planted in an effort to convince readers that the average citizen is no better educated or tempered than the governor.
