The man who arguably became Central Florida's most recognized judge — without ever making public comment about the case that thrust him into the national spotlight — left some piercing, parting words for Casey Anthony's defense attorneys on Monday.

In an order granting Anthony's request for him to step down from the case, Orange County Circuit Judge Stan Strickland wrote: "At its core, defense counsel's motion accuses the undersigned of being a ‘self-aggrandizing media hound.' Indeed. The irony is rich."

Anthony's defense team filed a motion late Friday asking Strickland to disqualify himself from her first-degree murder case because of a "personal relationship" he has with a blogger who has been critical of their client...

I was originally floored by this. But, God does what He does. Careful what you wish for, Josie. Now you got a judge who not only prosecuted death penalty cases, as a judge he has SENT women to the green mile. I am just bummed that a hot dog vendor/blogger who had the fortune of living nearby managed to inject himself into this circus. hmmmm maybe he will end up like Donna Brock. One can always hope...
