Even A Broken Clock...

That Great Thinker, Antonin Scalia, says, about the 2000 Gore/Bush decision:

The equal-protection clause had been violated because they were counting votes differently.

Hope he means it next time a decision on elections comes his way.

I'd, of course, argue that that should mean every vote in each state should be conducted in the same manner-if Democrats get easily 'spoiled' punch cards, so should Republicans.

Perhaps there could even be a system where if one college kid in Ohio has to wait 9 hours to vote, all the Republican voters should have to wait 9 hours to vote (watch the system get fixed in a nanosecond).
