I would rather put my faith in a panel of their peers. The Bar Association rated Paul Wojtaszek as well qualified and Mark Montour as qualified. That's the proof I need. Just look at the experience between the two. And Carla is right ethnicity should be no criteria. I want someone who would rule against cases involving the SAFE ACT.

Either way DarkStar you nailed it. I was really hoping that the annual migration might have stopped the goose crap from soiling our comment pages.

My kingdom for an edit function. lol!

That should read consistency, I freaking hate when I decide to rephrase something and then miss a word when I change everything else. :)

Got to love Dcronig's consistence, if the paper came up with a cure for cancer he would figure out a way to take a shot at them over it.

It's sad really, he seems to have become the leftist Steiner, although actually there is the rare occasion when Steiner posts something intelligent and makes a salient point (and which isn't covered in misogynistic babbling), unfortunately Dc's seem to be even more rare.

The problem with a lot of voting is the reason people vote.....I always liked him/her. He/She comes from a good family. I never liked that family. They are rich/poor. They are black/white/indian/polish/italian/irish,etc and on and on and of course the big one I am Democrat/Republican and I vote the party line because if I voted differently I might explode.

Oh, I'm not saying it's why he won, but it was constantly touted as a reason to support his candidacy and election and if it's good enough for a Presidential election how can we expect it not to be used in lesser elections?

DarkStar, I usually agree with your posts. However, in 2008 I think it was simply a case of ABB – “Anybody But Bush” – and Mickey Mouse could have run on the Democratic ticket and won. Oh, wait, he did! :-)

Anyone want to bet that the left wingers here who constantly rant about the Observer only endorsing the candidate running under the GOP ticket wont be commenting on this story, and will likely pretend it doesn't exist?


While I agree that race and/or ethnicity shouldn't be a deciding factor for any political office, but it how are we suppose to avoid it in State races when it was constantly used as a reason we should vote for Obama in 2008?

Ethnicity should not be an endorsement criteria.
