    And we elect judges. This dude is done.

    But congratulations for a job well done. Let's see how long it lasts. So MANY bigots live here.

    While the Democrats and Republicans take incoming from each other and corporations are pwning America, the Chinese are taking over the world. C'est le vie.

      This judge, Chris Piazza, is in Little Rock. Not exactly a hotbed of conservatism that. AR-ACLU picked his district to try this case for a reason.

      Second, since judges aren't term-limited, there's a good chance he's been there a while and can weather an electoral storm (judges around here usually only get defeated if they get into money or sex scandals themselves).

      Third, the filing deadline for offices has long passed, and local judicial terms are (I think) four years. By the time any real opposition took hold, all but the crazies will have forgotten he was the one who struck it down. And, again, it's a good chance that his isn't a crazy district.

      Now if this judge had been sitting anywhere else (aside from Fayetteville, the college town), I'd agree with your assessment. As it is, I think you're wrong.

      rolls around, please post. At least he won't be short of $$$.

      All evil needs to succeed is for good people to say "the votes aren't there in the Senate."
