What Was He Thinking?

The Judicial Council of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals opened a misconduct review of Montana's chief federal District Court judge for forwarding a racially charged email about President Obama from his courthouse computer.

Judge Richard F. Cebull asked for the review as calls mounted Thursday for his immediate resignation. Legal ethics experts predicted the incident would result in a public admonishment. (Los Angeles Times)
Like Judge Cebull, many of us have received racist or sexist emails; however, the difference is we realized the hateful content of these emails and promptly deleted them. The good judge choose to forward this racist email to his "old buddies." That a federal judge displayed such gross insensitivity and poor judgement clearly demonstrates his lack of judicial ethics necessary to remain on the bench. As incompetent a president as was George W Bush, the number of hateful emails directed at Bush never equaled the avalanche of slime directed at President Obama. Our political class has become like a carnival sideshow - nothing but freaks, geeks, and snake oil pitchmen.
