Yes but no
Love is like a magic penny

if you give it away you'll have so many
they'll be rolling all over the floor

When does the sheriff show up to arrest these guys for defying a court order?

Whew, so that means it can't get any worse.

No, the whole ingenuity behind our particular version of hell is it will continue to get worse bit by bit by bit

Remember that in sixteen years five months three days when God Emperor Trump brings your beloved childhood pet back to life, only to force you to slaughter and eat it to prove your eternal loyalty.

The smoke signals communicating current events in the post-nuclear wasteland will describe his sadistic laughter as "very presidential."

Wouldn't that be "God-Imperial"?
Are we there yet?

I'm sure the author of that article knows more about this stuff than I do, but I'm not sure I follow the logic. If they're confident Whitford is going to end partisan gerrymandering, why would they bother with Rucho? It makes more sense to me that they'd want to expedite Rucho if they know they're going to lose Whitford and they want to get another shot with a case that maybe presents what they feel is a better challenge.

ETA: I guess the argument is that Whitford will only end the partisan gerrymander in Wisconsin and they want to quickly get through another case that might set a wider precedent?

There's a cynical part of me that feels like it will be awful timely to end gerrymandering right before the hypothetical "blue wave".

So the state SC is just going to go "lol no" on that one, right?
