So last week, they made a really stupid decision, and then this week they do a 180 and make a correct decision. I don’t understand…I would think they would have got them both right or both wrong. Did we change SCOTUS justices over the weekend or something?

So I wonder if these means that legislative and congressional district boundaries will be drawn more unbiased in the future. Wouldn’t it be great if there were no rigged districts? Wouldn’t it be great if voters weren’t such predictable sheep that rigging districts wouldn’t even be possible?
