Bring 'em on
Can't you hear Justice Scalia speaking to California? Like the president he anointed, he must be telling the Court of Appeals in California, "Bring on the recall so we can jump into another election." The 9th Circuit decision ironically referred to Bush v. Gore throughout the decision pointing out that the high court found that punch ballots may miss many voters.
What will this Court do? Scalia might conclude "punch ballots were bad in Florida but good in California." Perhaps, but it is unlikely that the Court will interfere. If the recall is held on the scheduled date of the presidential primary, there is plenty of time for California to modernize. Think the White House is making some calls?
