It's an election year, and the campaign's silly season has begun: big money, independent expenditures by special interests, endless TV advertising, nasty attack ads, false and misleading charges and raging partisan campaigns.

Each state should seek a balance of independence and accountability in its methods for selection and retention of judges.
