    Well, being on the left, you'll probably make stuff up anyway. But Robert Torricelli comes to mind, as a similar situation where the law was clear, but a judge ignored it.

    You realize Roberts is very, and very consistently, conservative?

    Under the circumstances in this case? No. He had enough signatures, and some of them were invalid on a technicality, and apparently the circulators in question had evidence to show they had reasonable belief the statutes had been complied with.

    Democracy is supposed to be about voters, not paperwork. So, no, I don't have a problem with that.

    Unless ofcourse Demo's lose the election, then it's all about technicality....

    Many cases of supposedly "conservative" judges appointed to the SC, that turned out to be shall we say, less than conservative....

    No. Roberts is more of a consensus builder than a conservative.

    David Souter, a mistake that HW will have to live with forever. That's what you get when you let your moderate Chief of Staff pick your SCOTUS nominees for you.

    So excluding them from the race on a technicality is fine with you, but them winning on a technicality is anathema. OK.

    The rules are the rules, until the rules hurt your side.
