US Supremes cuff ears and hands 9th Circuit

The Court’s per curiam opinion in Purcell v. Gonzalez - the Arizona Proposition 200 citizen initiative requiring voters to present photo identification (or two forms of non-photo identification that contain both name and address) in order to vote - cuffed the ears of the 9th Circuit for failing to explain their reason for enjoining the law and then handcuffed the 9th Circuit, preventing the lower court from throwing down a last minute injunction.

Hat tip to the Supremes for allowing Arizona to require that dead people produce at least to photo IDs to vote.
