republicans will do anything to suppress the voters,gratefully this federal judge seen right through the GOP nonsense! Also I think that it is time for state and lower judges to be elected and they must declare their party.

They are political hags anyway,so why should they have lifetime appointments to the bench? The constitution is a remarkable document,but the founder got it wrong about the Judicial branch

The founders instincts to keep politics out of the courtroom as much as possible is a good one. Electing lower level judges by political party that nobody knows anything about will only attract more partisan judicial candidates. Wouldn't be a good thing in my opinion.

We knew that as long as we only have Obama as President the sanctity of the voting process would be compromised. Chicago Machine Gangster tactics must take precedence over even the most common sense best interests of America.

We already elect lower level judges,just by name only,and no party affilation,so why make a vote for a judge that you no nothing about?

So, illegal aliens getting a driver's license, felons, those with pending felony charges, those illegally purchasing guns in the week before the election, those using non-photo identification of the recently deceased and other ineligible Democrat voters can make false applications on the day of voting and no one has any ability to check its legitimacy.

Learn English then come back, teabagger.
According to homosexual columnist Dan Savage, the person whose scrotum is being stimulated is known as "the teabagger" and "the teabaggee" is the one giving the stimulation: "A teabagger dips sack; a teabaggee receives dipped sack."

http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/SavageLove...

Savage Love is a syndicated sex-advice column by Dan Savage.

The openly homosexual author uses the column as a forum for his strong opinions that reject conservative views on love, sex, and family. He generally encourages advice-seekers to pursue their fetishes, so long as activities are legal, consensual, safe, and respectful.

For the first six years of the column, Savage had his readers address him with "Hey faggot", as a comment on previous efforts to recapture offensive words. He was criticized for this by some homosexual activists.

GGG

Dan Savage and his readers often use the abbreviation GGG. In his March 1, 2007 column, Savage summarized: "GGG stands for 'good, giving, and game,' which is what we should all strive to be for our sex partners. Think 'good in bed,''giving equal time and equal pleasure,' and 'game for anythingówithin reason.'"

Lifting Luggage

Following the "rent boy" allegations regarding George Rekers, who has widely promoted aversion therapy, Dan Savage, along with others including Stephen Colbert, promoted the use of the idiom "to lift one's luggage", meaning to supply one's partner with sexual pleasure. When outed, Rekers insisted he had hired the escort only to assist him with lifting his luggage. Rekers also claimed he "spent a great deal of time sharing scientific information on the desirability of abandoning homosexual intercourse" and "shared the gospel of Jesus Christ with him in great detail."

Originally Dan Savage suggested that "lifting my luggage" refer to listening to the speaker expound on the "desirability" of converting oneself from homosexual to heterosexual. Later, after several political humorists started employing "lifting your luggage" as an implicit or explicit reference to various sexual acts, Savage suggested that "Whatever lifts your luggage" supplant "whatever floats your boat" in common parlance.

In following weeks and months many calls and letters directed to Savage Love employed various forms of "lifting one's luggage" to refer to a sexual act performed to the preference of the recipient. Such usage continues among writers and callers to Savage Love.
