    Also leftist white women. Someone I know wasn't going to vote Hillary because I quote, "she's a neoliberal!" Whatever that means.

    The most unsurprising news of the week....

    “The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that President Donald Trump should remain on Colorado’s primary ballot, rejecting a challenge to his eligibility for another term that could have upended the presidential race by taking him off ballots around the nation,” the New York Times reports.

    “Though the justices offered different reasons, the decision was unanimous.”

    “The decision was the court’s most important ruling concerning a presidential election since Bush v. Gore handed the presidency to George W. Bush in 2000.”

    I'm not a jurist, but the most surprising thing is that is a 9-0 and that the SCOTUS basically defers to congress to create the enforcement process for section 3 of the 14th amendment.

    Seems like that would make it the VP's job if Congress doesn't address it... just don't count the votes for him, conflict of interest notwithstanding...

    They ruled just in time for Super Tuesday. I can’t help but notice that they’re pretty quick and cognizant of the schedule of political events in some situations. In others, they are very dilatory.

    And I also can’t help but notice that their application of knowledge of the political calendar ain’t random.

    An Illinois judge ruled that Trump can't to run in the state, I guess this decision would Trump that.

    And yet, somehow, I'm sure they'll live with it just fine.

    Has anyone seen enough of the opinions to know if this is limited to the primary only, or does it presume to apply to the election itself? I can certainly live with the notion that a party can nominate an ineligible person if it wishes, just not that he can win...

    They use that as cover for what they truly believe in. Which is why they are ok with it.

    It looks like the votes for the Liberal Justices was changed from from a Dissent, in part, and changed to a Concurrence with partial dissent. I'm not clear on what the difference is as it seems to be semantics, but legal twitter is atwitter about it. Some are speculating that the Liberal dissent was changed to a concurrence in exchange for hearing the Immunity case this session rather than punting it to the next session:

    My experience was that progressive white men were worse on the issue than progressive women. HRC triggered a LOT of Mommy issues on the left.

    The opinions I'm seeing is that the ruling is saying Trump (or any insurrectionist) can't be removed from any ballots because Congress has not written a law regarding enforcement. So removal falls upon Congress.

    The Supreme Court seemed to have a different view of congressional authority in the VRA case Shelby.

    This court is corrupt to the core as a court. As senators or representatives they’re par for the course (except for it being legal to bribe a Supreme.). But they’re not justices adhering to a set of legal principles. They’re political operatives. Their decisions are the exact same decisions the Wise Old Heads of the GOP would make. Every time.

    I have this vague memory of freshman year astronomy. We started with a bit of pre astronomy, the wrong, nonheliocentric models. Without a heliocentric model they were never going to understand orbits, but they came up with a systemof a sort. I think it was called the Ptolemaic system. And I can still hear and see the professor saying the word “epicycles.”

    Epicycles were basically cheats to explain away the anomalies on Ptolemaic Astronomy.

    Which brings me to conservative constitutional scholarship….

    For this one, they kind of had to rule today, as our Primary is officially tomorrow (but we all get mail in, so it really started a couple weeks ago).

    9-0 is a surprise. Most thought it would 8-1 with Sotomayor dissenting.
