What's Wrong with Irish Names?

IL is about to take action to keep judicial candidates from changing to Irish surnames prior to elections. I naturally think the practice might actually improve the wisdom employed from the bench, but basically I just thought this was weird and interesting enough to call your attention to it. No need to tell me if I'm wrong. (h/t Stateline)

[This could all be avoided if we followed the sane practice of state judicial appointments, with a major impact on criminal sentencing to boot, IMO.]
