A current Federal Judge nominee is being criticized for comments he made on a college sports message board.

Reporters ferreted out his screen name and are publishing his posts.

Is nothing sacred?

Good. The illusion on anoyminity provides a window to the true intentions that lurk beneath.

They should just focus on his opinions as a state judge or the arguments that he has made as a trial attorney.

Oh.

Does this spell the end of the Colt 45 as we know it?

When you say things that stupid, you probably deserve to be outed.

I am NOT that federal judge nominee, nor would I want the job, even with its lifetime appointment and associated perks. My friends who ascended to the federal level have all tended to vanish into the clouds atop Mt. Olympus, never to be seen again. I am perfectly happy where I am, hoping to play out the string and retire at the end of 2021.

Plus, you can say most anything you want on this message board and not worry about reporters outing you.

Just need to be careful about that Politico reporter that pops up on the board every now and then!

I can only imagine what would happen if some humorless federal agent had to troll through my nearly 2,500 posts, discovering my obsessions with Henery Hawk, squirrels, 40 oz. malt beverages, Scottish tams, Diane Lane, etc., not to mention my abysmal ignorance of the finer points of basketball.

Or --

You can use your real name and write your real thoughts.

And be the real thing.

If the political world can't handle it, worry not. It's not real anyway.

I would like to agree with this but I don't want to use my real name. I'm still hiding from old girlfriends and the people who knew me freshman year. Wink

The signature is an homage to a greater wit than mine

You and I have figured out the best screen names for remaining anonymous.
