Rather sloppy, I'd say.

I wonder if he'll take the blame, or point the finger at one of his clerks.

Kavanaugh and Coney were seated on the Supreme Court for only one reason. Steal the election and give Trump a second term.

That's it.

Politics over country is all the Republican Party has.

US Senators Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) released the statement:

"In America, we count the votes to determine who wins an election. Despite the incorrect assertions from President Trump and Justice Kavanaugh, election officials across the country accept ballots well after Election Day every year, and results are not certified until the votes are counted and a canvas to confirm the results is conducted. Absentee ballots counted after election day do not flip the results of an election,' as Justice Kavanaugh claimed. They are the results of the election.

"More than twenty states, including states like Mississippi, Kansas, and Utah, require ballots postmarked by Election Day to be counted even if they are received after Election Day. This is critical to ensuring that those who may face hardships in voting, including members of our military serving abroad and those affected by COVID-19, are not disenfranchised by things like mail delays. These are not new rules and they do not serve any political party. It is on all of us to reject misinformation and to tell the truth. Our election systems span 50 states, five territories, and thousands of jurisdictions. State and local election officials are working around the clock, and experts have concluded that the integrity of our election system is strong. The best defense against those trying to undermine our democracy is the resolve of the American people, who are voting by the millions as we speak. Keep voting."

Judge Keg wrote the opinion after having Amy Coathanger Barrett research the case.

Brilliant post. I loved it. I just wish Judges Keg and Coathanger would actually be exposed to it and understand the disgust that most Americans feel about them.

Great, so now we get Trump-esque incompetence leaking into the supreme court to go along with Trump-esque batshtt insanity too.

We are 3/4 on our way towards a banana republic.

I believe the clerks are expected to provide a summary of the law; but it is on the Justice to read and correct if necessary. Unqualified jurists make weak interpretations of law. I am not sure why, but I expect better of one of the Supremes!

He was obviously drunk when he wrote it, I mean he's on the record at his hearings as really, really, really liking beer.

Great lesson on how the right-wing turns lies into facts:

Great lesson on how right-wingers usher in autocracy:

They do it legally.

"When it comes to issuing decisions on the voting rights of American citizens, facts matter."

Umm no. Not to Trumptilians. Obviously.
