Mobile Register Endorses Smith over Parker for Alabama Supreme Court

The Mobile Register has endorsed Democrat Robert Smith over Roy Moore clone Tom Parker for Place 1 on the Alabama Supreme Court. Smith describes himself as a fan of U.S. Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Conner. Though she often votes with the Court's "conservatives," Justice O'Conner is known as the Court's principal swing vote, a position that may be more indicative of her lack of clear principles than of her thoughtfulness. So much for looking for an acceptable alternative to Tom Parker.
