Moore Protege Parker To Run for Chief Justice

Oh, goody! More blog fodder for those of us who follow Alabama politics — Tom Parker has formally announced his candidacy for Chief Justice. Tom was the only one of the Roy-Moore-wannabes who managed to win a Supreme Court seat in the last election, despite their constant vilification of the incumbent judges who upheld a federal court order to remove Roy’s rock.

Tom’s work record isn’t very impressive. He spends most of his time railing about godless activist judges and neglects to write opinions in cases before the court. He’s particularly angry that the US Supreme Court ruled that juveniles should not be executed, and he decided to publish an op-ed piece stating that the Alabama Supreme Court should ignore the ruling. He’s now been charged with judicial misconduct, but he says it’s all an ACLU plot to turn Alabama into San Francisco.

Parker faces current Chief Justice Drayton Nabers in the Republican primary, and the winner will go up against Judge Sue Bell Cobb, who has twenty-five years of experience on the bench. We can only hope that Drayton, a real conservative (despite Parker’s assertions to the contrary) and a man of integrity, will manage to defeat Parker so we can have two good choices in the general election.

Unfortunately, the last time we had a choice between a demagogue and a candidate who actually knew how to administer a court system, Roy Moore handily defeated Circuit Court Judge Sharon Yates. And we all know how that turned out.

  1. All Tom Parker’s got to run on is his Roy connection bonafides. I’m hoping it won’t get him past Nabers. But who can tell?

    Might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure I saw Roy Moore yesterday on the street downtown (regular lunchtime walk). Came within 8 feet of him. He and another suit were scouting about a quiet side street, maybe looking at vacant property for an office…? No lunch places right there, either.

    I looked for a campaign vehicle or related entourage — nothing. Odd. Who knows?

    Jeff, I’m guessing Roy already has a campaign office in Montgomery. Maybe he’s looking for space to run his “national spokesman for morality” gig.
