Openings on the Alaskan State Supreme Court:
Remember just a day or two ago when Sarah Palin filled the Alaska Supreme Court vacancy, and her administration claimed “Her choice for Supreme Court judge was made in accordance with Alaska law. She chose the person most qualified from the names sent to her.” Well, apparently that attitude is checked at the door when it involves someone who is eminently qualified, but who has also been somewhat critical of the governor.
The governor has received more than two dozen unsolicited applications so far, and apparently wants as many as she can get. She’ll be accepting applications until Friday at which time she will release the names of the applicants. Elton’s replacement must be a Juneau Democrat and be approved by a majority of Democratic State Senators. Hey, Juneau Mudflatters, any takers?
