This whole thing has lost all credibility

Calif. recall blocked
Court postpones gubernatorial election

Federal appeals court rules historic vote cannot proceed as scheduled because some votes would be cast using outmoded punch-card ballot machines. (via breaking news – no link)

UPDATE: Here’s a link. That doesn’t increase any credibility on anyone’s part, however.

UPDATE 2: Michael Williams notes

It seems inevitable that the Supreme Court will accept the case, but I have no idea how it will rule. I don’t expect the Court to be overly sympathetic with the old-voting-machine argument, considering that a majority of the justices stopped the endless recounting in Florida in 2000.

Good point.
