Response to bemildred (Reply #4)

5. The appointment/merit retention was intended to depoliticize the Court.

I don't know if this is going to work. Generally, the merit retention vote is a rubber stamp, barring gross incompetence and corruption. Though this has gotten some mention in the papers, I'm not sure the average voter is paying enough attention that the massive ad campaign won't have an effect.
