This week Justice Brett Kavanagh demonstrated for all to see that he has no place on the Supreme Court. His opinion that Wisconsin cannot count votes arriving in the mail after 8:00pm on election day was based explicitly on “logic” that says such late arriving votes might “flip” the election. Justice Kagan, in her dissent from this partisan bullshit decision, had to straighten him out. There is nothing to “flip” until all votes are counted. Duh!
The Frat Boy Wonder added in his opinion that keeping the count open waiting for all legal ballots to arrive in the mail would prevent states from declaring a winner on election night. That is one of the lies that Trump is peddling but again, DUH! States do not declare winners or losers on election night. The media tries to do so but that is an entirely different matter. States frequently take days and sometimes weeks to finalize an election.
This anti-Democratic and anti-democratic and obviously partisan decision is a taste of things to come. It is what happens when hyper-partisans pack the courts with ideologues. Time for Democrats to play hardball the way Mitch McConnell and Trump have been doing.
