Vote for me: My work doesn't suck as much as it used to
In an endorsement of Democrat Keith Hampton, the Dallas News says Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Michael "Keasler concedes that the court has a poor reputation, but he says the quality of its work has improved drastically in recent years, bringing it into 'the mainstream' nationally." Keasler's been on the court since 1999, so that's basically an admission that for much of that time the court's quality of work has been shoddy. And of course, to the extent the quality of the court's work has "improved drastically," it's mostly because Keasler has more frequently been in the minority.
