I have to weigh in on the NJ Supreme Court decision in the NJ senate race because everyone else is. It's a complete crock, of course, but at least the NJSC didn't try some tortured reading of the law but just flat out ignored it. At least they're clear about their view of the importance of the rule of law. Micky Kaus has the best tag line I"ve seen:

It's ironic that the court pays such attention to finding what it thinks is the most democratic way to pick a lawmaker, even as it brushes aside the actual work-product of those democratically-elected lawmakers, namely statutes.
