Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

The Deep Fish...

...appear to be lining up for Rick Noriega. This is a good thing; I respectfully submit that Noriega will make a better candidate than Mikal Watts (whose arguments in favor of himself are neatly deconstructed by Vince from Capitol Annex here). For one thing, Noriega's back story is better ("war veteran" as opposed to "trial lawyer"). For another, he seems to grok teh interwebs. And, finally, let's be blunt, he fits the growing demographic trend in this state.
