    The Commonwealth got "PC'ed" [vacated per curiam] by the Supremes, suggesting that they entertain some doubt that all eligible voters will be able to get the required ID by Election Day. This is more or less of a "procedendo": to Simpson to enjoin the law's effectiveness until after the General or else they will.

    What a gutless opinion from a top state court.

    This group did not have the guts to write an opinion. They were even more gutless in sending the matter back to a 'lower' court, and telling this lower court what to consider in rendering an opinion in a lower court that can immediately be brought right back to a 'higher' gutless court.

    No wonder the Judicial Branch - including the SCOTUS - is held in such low regard.
