I used to make it a point to spotlight Republican hypocrisy, but no more. Hypocrisy is no longer one of the deadly sins in the GOP book. It's a best practice, right up there with lying and cheating. Even so, sometimes their transgressions demand a response.
This week's evil-doer is Dallas Woodhouse, a person who's integrity seems to match that of the scumbag in the White House. I'm not sure if Woodhouse ever had a soul, but if he did, it has long been sold on the altar of "win at any cost." In this case, the "cost" is the integrity and impartiality of an entire branch of government.
A few days ago, Woodhouse tweeted his displeasure with a Democratic judge behaving like a Democrat. Oh the horrors, said Woodhouse. How could this be?

How could this be? Let me count the ways:
- In 2013, the GOP ended public financing for judicial elections, ushering in the era of big money and outside influence.
- In 2015, changed the rules to make statewide appellate court elections partisan.
- This year, they're going to pass HB100 to make ALL judicial races partisan. In addition, they plan to gerrymander the hell out of judicial districts.
So with all due respect, I have two words for Mr. Woodhouse and his never ending bullshit. And they ain't, "Good day."
