Why John Roberts fumbled again

We know longer have cause to look down on the corruption of so-called "Banana Republics," because we've become one (I borrowed the image above from The People's Cube, where they're familiar with totalitarian impulses).

E. Donald Elliot in American Spectator Online yesterday:

"The [U.S. Supreme] Court's stated reason for turning down the case brought by Texas against Pennsylvania and other swing states was its ruling that one state has no "judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another state conducts its elections." That should go down in history as one of the dumbest things the court has ever said, right up there with 'separate but equal' as a justification for racial segregation or 'three generations of imbeciles is enough' as a justification for mandatory sterilization.

The question was not how Pennsylvania conducted "its" election, as the Court wrongly characterized the issue. The allegations went to the constitutional legitimacy of election procedures in a presidential election in which voters in both Texas and Pennsylvania participated. If one state may illegally manipulate votes in a presidential election, the influence of all the other states that do play by the rules is undermined. The Court was essentially saying that one team has no interest in whether the other team is cheating."

(To see and think about what the Supremes should have but chose not to, see this compendium of evidence for ballot fraud and irregularity as alleged by no less than 923 fact witnesses)
