    I do not think there is any possibility the Supreme Court is going to save Trump's bacon if he clearly lost (or even narrowly lost!) an election. Roberts isn't going to pull a move that will...

    I would say "In God I trust, all others I audit," but double-slit experiments make me want to audit the Holy Ledger too. There's definite funny business.
