    “If the State has a problem with judicial impartiality, it is largely one the State brought upon itself by continuing the practice of popularly electing judges.”

    I am at somewhat of a loss as to why elected judges are expected to be more partisan, and less impartial, than judges selected by elected politicians. It seems to me that any process for selecting judges has a built in problem of bias towards those who do the selecting, and given that, we should prefer judges who are biased in favor of the electorate, rather than the government.

    On a side note, how many “captas” does this site have? Seven? It seems to rotate through a remarkably short list.
