The Definition of Insanity, Redux and Again/Again

Lord Damp Nut is taking that definition of insanity quip (about doing the same thing over again and expecting a different outcome) to Broadway (mixed metaphor alert!) :

President Trump’s campaign team on Sunday filed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Courtasking it to reverse several cases by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to change the state’s mail ballot law before and after the 2020 presidential election…

“The petition cites a “related Pennsylvania case” where Justice Samuel Alito and two other justices observed the constitutionality of the state court’s decision to extend the statutory deadline for receipt of mail ballots from 8 p.m. on Election Day to 5 p.m. three days later. “

I think it was Karl or Richard or one of the other Marx Brothers who said, History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.

    Howdy y’all!

    Sometimes news stories are a little hard to follow for us thickheaded mulleted types: If the SCOTUS Justices stated that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision to allow the extension of the statutory deadline was constitutional, then doesn’t that mean that they’re likely to either make the same finding again or just refuse to hear the case? So, why would they cite the case in their petition? Surely, I’m reading that wrong, right? Because otherwise they just defeated their own case before it was even filed. No one would do that, right? That would be foolish. I’ve got to be wrong here. That can’t be what that says. Please tell me I’m wrong. It’s wrong, right? It’s wrong. It’s all wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Somebody make it make sense, please.
