Good morning and Happy Last Day of July 2012.
Back in 1979, Donna Summers' Bad Girls was the number 1 single this week. Here's your very short morning Sift. Enjoy.
A- Justice Building Blog asks his readers who's the best judge they ever appeared before and gives his answers.
Any discussion involving the best at the REGJB usually starts and ends with the late Judge Cowart. A very smart man. Great judicial temperament. A true southern gentleman. Usually responded to most inane objections with "bless your soul", but when he needed to apply his razor sharp legal mind, his reasoning was spot on. Is remembered for telling Ted Bundy when he sentenced him to death that in another circumstance he wished Bundy would have been a lawyer appearing before him "but you chose another path pardner...." A great and memorable line.B- The Reid Report links to a Newsweek article that questions whether Willard Romney has what it takes to be President of the United States.
C- Eye on Miami explains why judicial candidates need to renounce endorsements from the Christian Family Coalition.
I am calling ON ALL JUDGES and JUDGE CANDIDATES to renounce your CFC endorsement. Don't let this hate group co-opt your reputation and make you appear as hateful as they are. The Christian Family Coalition doesn't just hate and attack Gay Groups...they hate and attack judges that don't side with their positions too.
