Who will be choosing your judges? It could be people more radical than you ever imagined. This is what could happen when the conservative establishment starts to go soft.
As we've repeatedly pointed out, in Massachusetts the elections for Governor's Council, though usually overlooked, are actually among the most important. These are the eight people who approve the nomination of judges. Judges serve for life (until retirement). An activist, biased, or incompetent judge can -- and often do -- affect the state for decades. As we know, Massachusetts has a horrible history with this.
The Democrat running in a key district, Michael Albano, a former Mayor of Springfield, would be every pro-family citizen's nightmare. If you think the activist judges who imposed "gay marriage" on this state were outrageous, that's just the beginning
Here's what the local Hampshire Gazette wrote about Albano today:
He says he will use support for gay marriage, abortion rights and affirmative action as a litmus test for deciding on judicial appointments.
"I make no apology for that. We're not going back," Albano said. "I fought hard for those civil rights throughout my career and I am going to safeguard them as a member of the Governor's Council."
Litmus test for judges? You must support abortion rights, gay marriage, affirmative action -- or be rejected. It could happen in Massachusetts after Tuesday's vote!

I always vote against the judges that are up for approval vote. If a Judge has not done anything that makes the press that I like he is not working hard enough for me.
