    Due to Black_Hole's resignation as Chief Justice, the office is currently vacant. This places myself, the President, in charge of selecting a replacement.

    Please apply here.

    Name:Mhcarver
    Date:Not as often as I'd like
    Applying for: Chief justice
    Former Experience:Every Judicial office at least three times
    You should appoint me because: Since I haven't actually done anything this demogame except lose for elected office, It therefore can't be said that I have any conflict of interest. If appointed I promise to rule on all pending issues within 72 hours of my appointment. I promise now that I will not seek re-election so that I can issue the rulings I believe in and not have to worry about the wrath of the voters My rulings are brief and therefore will be easy to understand, also If i'm not nominated then I will kill a puppy, and possibly a kitten(joke)

    Actually, I'm not real worried about the puppies and kittens, but I will second the nomination of Mhcarver on his past performance. Just hide the key to the wine cellar. ;)

    I suggest we wait the 72 hours so we don't have a repeat of last term.

    Whether we have a repeat or not would seem to rest in your hands, since you were the only supporter of waiting 72 hours. Perhaps you should give it a rest. :)

    Actually, I like four days better. 72 hours is already a compromise. And need I point out that it's Friday, so we're coming up on a weekend. Would it be so terrible if an appointment was not made till Monday?

    Yes, it would be terrible. Every time we have a delay of any kind, we turn people off and they leave. If your objective for the game is to be the last one standing, waiting is a good course of action to follow, but I'd rather just get all the pending rulings done and move on.

    Well at the moment I'm stuck in a bit of a conundrum, I side with donsig then I will be hurting the game, If I favor being appointed then I'm against the laws and likely subject to some kind of confirmation poll, so I'm going to defer to the president on this one

    I'm waiting the 72 hours. 48 hours has already almost passed, and an extra day won't amount for much.

    I would like everyone to welcome our new Chief Justice, mhcarver! The deciding factor was the smoothie making contest.
