Ho-hum. Yawn-stretch. What? Yeah, Justice Wil Schroder resigned and Governor Beshear is going to appoint somebody to fill that seat and then in 2014 a few lawyers will run and somebody will win and well, who cares, right? Well how about this: what do you know about any of the likely candidates?
Michele Keller, Bob Sanders, Katie Stine, Tom Rouse, Greg Popovich, Marty Sheehan are all being talked about as people considering a race. Michele Keller is the odds on favorite to get the governor's approval but might not be up to a blistering half million dollar run. They are all very nice people. Some with more legal experience than others. Some with court experience.
What else do you know about them? How do they see the world? What do they think about the second amendment, right to life, the way in which the constitution should be applied? Might you be able to tell any of these things from their party affiliations? Probably not. Should any of this count anyway?
Who is endorsing them? What is their agenda? Do you know these people personally? Will they perform the job the way you think it ought to be performed?
Does it really matter anyway?
Some things to think about. Now back to your regular programming.
