From Where Should Judges Come?

David Rivkin is angry with Sandra Day O'Connor because of her support (and campaign telephone calls) for "merit" selection for judges. Rivkin's objections were in the WSJ on Friday. The Washington Times had an editorial on the same subject here. From the Times:
This week, the retired justice was exposed for having recorded political robo-calls pushing a constitutional amendment in Nevada for state judges to be appointed by governors rather than elected by citizens. She claims she never gave permission for her recording to be used for robo-calls, but she recorded not just a voice message but also a video for a political group dedicated solely to passing this amendment - a group she leads as "honorary chairwoman."
