10. Lol people over at Conservative Reddit are stunned.

They're basically in disbelief. They honestly thought Trump had SCOTUS in the bag.

...I think I might make a single three-word reply ("suck it, traitors" and see how many downvotes it gets before it gets deleted.

15. Is this the case before Alito this morning?

(On edit: seems it was. Now what the heck is going on in Texas? When does this sick whackamole get smack down for good? )

23. Yes.And it was never going to be decided by Alito alone.

On cases such as this, where emergency relief is sought in a potentially significant case, it is standard operating procedure for the Justice receiving the petition to refer it to the entire court, which is what happened here. Note that there was no opinion, no dissents, just a back of the hand, one line order denying the application for injunctive relief.

Which is what all of the experts predicted, notwithstanding some uniformed handwringing by concern trolls.

I can't imagine the Texas attempt will get any further.

22. The fat lady just wheezed her last aria,

and even Scalia wouldn't touch that dumpster fire.

There's still the ridiculous Texas vs. Everybody Else case, brought by indicted TX AG Ken Paxton as a desperate bid for a presidential pardon; the court has to hear that one because they have original rather than appellate jurisdiction. But I can't for the life of me figure out why they think Texas has standing to complain about how other states exercise their constitutional power to manage their own elections. That one will crash and burn before long, too.

28. Yes, I have to admit I am breathing much easier.

I was just a bit apprehensive after 4 years of being shell-shocked, then watching them get away with it, time after time.

Wiser folks than me - professional 'observers,' if you will - said "The judiciary will hold." And damned if it hasn't!

30. So, 9 or so red states are suing multiple blue states?

To overturn their electors?
I'd like some expert analysis of this one.
I think the legal standing/precedence issues in this one would be nightmarish and something Roberts would rather not touch with a 10-foot pole.
