hear me out:

someone would immediately file in Federal district court.  Regardless of the outcome of that case, one can make an argument that the Supreme Court would, like it did in both Roe v Wade and Bush v Gore, take the case on an expedited basis.

I believe that the vote in the Supreme Court would be unanimous -  KS cannot do that.

The issue of whether the sitting President of the United States, sworn into office - TWICE - by the Republican Chief Justice, is eligible to BE president of the United States, is already settled.  Can you imagine any of the Justices voting otherwise?

Okay, I know this is a silly posting.

But I think this action by Kobach and company could be a major blow to the credibility fo the Republican brand.

And oh by the way, as the point was just made on Hardball, Romney's failure to step up and make a statement against this potential action in Kansas, where Obama's mother was born, demonstrate absolutely clearly his lack of character, his cowardice in confronting the lunatic fringe of the Republican bank.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
