And then you had the TX Attorney General sue PA and a couple other states to invalidate our elections.

These people need to be SANCTIONED and DISBARRED.

12. Trump will call on his base to take up arms to protect his overwhelming win and "stop the steal."

And dammit, some of them will.

5. CNN's article gives more detail, though i wish they would post how the justices voted.

https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/biden-trump-us-election-news-12-08-20/h_5aea05d0b214c3b5c332cde033b18517

I'm curious to know how the GOP justices leaned in particular, especially that Amy CB.

It's over. And denied by Alito, an extremely conservative justice.

13. Is it too late

To file lawsuits saying the 2016 election was fraudulent?
(only partly sarcastic.) Their heads would explode.

14. I've gotta laugh. Hannity on radio just now saying he has reviewed this filing and it is air tight.

I just got back from the grocery, on the way home put on local radio channel.

He was also praising Ken Paxton's silly lawsuit, and claimed "The Constitution is clear" that Georgia election is illegitimate.

15. "Long-shot legal effort?"

Not by half. It was a 4th quarter Hail Mary when your team is down by 30. Never had a chance.

I admit, I was a little apprehensive when I thought about how SCOTUS has been tilted so far, but some cooler thinking prevailed.

One of my over-riding thoughts was that, John Roberts, if no one else, knows it would be his legacy, and he has more gravitas and sense of history than this wheezing calliope being pulled around by asthmatic donkeys could pull him towards either party, or Drumpf.

I'm no fan of his, but he has surprised me a couple of times, and I think he, above all others of his stripe, wants to be proud of his place in history. Kavanaugh probably doesn't even understand the concept, because he clearly has no shame (hardly uncommon over there) or sense of propriety and just Doing The Right Thing. He cried over how much he loved beer FCS.

Barrett has the certitude of a True Believer, but she's just waiting to get a crack at Roe v Wade. She has no particular allegiance, other than to her god. I could be wrong, but that's the sense I get.

Alito was a bit of an unknown, but he's come through, shown he understands the law, so I believe I can now put these reservations to bed.

Plus, I think Thomas is feeling old enough now that he's more in Roberts' camp and won't want to further wreck his reputation. Not that that was a problem with the Rs, but that whiff of scandal is never going to go away completely.
