If you want to be elected to a southern judgeship, it's not wise to expose yourself as a racist.
The leaders of the state's Democratic and Republican parties have asked voters not to cast ballots for state Supreme Court candidate Rachel Lea Hunter, whose fiery rhetoric in recent weeks has included comparing the actions of a black congressional candidate to that of a slave.This woman is an idiot, and should never be allowed to hold office of any kind. That kind of thinking belongs in the past, not deciding people's fates in court.
Last week, in a post on her Web site, Hunter criticized congressional candidate Vernon Robinson for running for office as a Republican, even though the staunch and outspoken conservative lost his bid for state GOP chair at the party's convention in 2005.
"Like a good slave, he has returned to the plantation," Hunter wrote about Robinson, who is black.
