SCOTUS Rules Unanimously In 'Faithless Elector' Case

And it appears Justice Kagan is a fan of "Hamilton: The Musical" and "VEEP."

It would be great if the Electoral College would just go away and we could elect Presidents just like we do every other office in the country and the way every other country chooses its chief executive: one person, one vote.

But until that day, at least we won't have electors deciding last minute that Kimye is a better choice after all and they can forget how their state actually voted.

And... a swipe at Bush v. Gore?

The ruling, worth the read because Kagan is such a lively writer, is here (PDF).

Can you help us out?
