Re: “The Electoral College has Yet to Elect a President

Wrong. The two-thirds requirement refers to the US House of Representatives' vote on a president, in the event there's no Electoral College majority: "The person having the greatest Number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice."

Enough Obama electors would have to boycott to deny him a majority in the Electoral College. Then, it'd devolve to the House. Not gonna happen.

Re: “Take That, Homophobes!

Another issue with the case being heard by anyone else is that, given the pace of the judicial system, any decision is probably going to come after the election, which renders the issue moot / non-justiceable.
