Maybe Mike Carter could enter the race. There's always a need for a short-bus driver to carry water for Littlefield and Wamp.

While I've been accused of much, this is the first time I've been denigrated to a judgeship.

Sorry, EdwardMurrow and your compatriot "saminchatt" (otherwise known as Mike Carter), not guilty.

But I do have an incredible BS detector and Carter stinks. Too many episodes of "Little Corporal Carter" slinking his way into power, much like an outhouse rat finding a fresh privy.

Bob Moon isn't that petty and childish. The commissioners obviously made the right choice in not selecting a cry baby and a sore loser. Carter doesn't have what it takes and is in this for himself.

He may have claimed that not getting appointed wouldn't "wreck my life", but obvious he wanted it very badly and felt entitled to the position.

Carter has stated that it is an obvious choice. An educated idiot that was a "personal assistant" to the mayor or someone that has a good reputation, doesn't stir up trouble, and has been in ACTUAL public service for some time now. I have to agree with Carter... the choice is very obvious... and it's not you!

We are tired of it. Just have some dignity and walk away!

Not much has been heard from ole cry baby Carter aka saminchatt since Harry called him out. He can deny it all he wants, but the fact that Saminchatt's comments started as soon as he didn't get elected and ended as soon as he got busted being petty and desperate says a lot.

Good riddance.
