    What was already an unprecedented cluster fuck of a political year has now gone on full tilt.

    Nothing will happen until after the election.

    But it certainly makes the election more interesting.

    If the current cases go before 8 Justices and deadlock, then Texas Affirmative Action will remain but abortion restrictions will also stay in place.
    And POTUS' immigration declaration would remain on hold.
    Looks like some Senators will be looking for even more wine and dine and ??? than usual. Way more.

    You are correct. The is going to be hell if you are a conservative. If the Senate goes in recess, Obama will put in whomever he wants. They can then stay until the end of the courts term, which is June. There are other conditions I am sure to get around the Senate temporarily.l, just not sure what they are.

    Supreme Court Justices get lifetime appointments. The POTUS nominates a new justice. The Senate must approve it. there are only 9 total. They don't get turnover that much in Supreme Court. With a liberal POTUS and a conservative Senste it will be interesting. Scolia was a conservative.
