This ruling is unfortunate and I hope it is overturned. These laws are the least-problematic solution, within the confines of the constitution as currently written, to what could one day cause an actual constitutional crisis (not the kind cable news declares every 48 hours, the actual kind with tanks). We're not immune to that kind of thing, as a country, and we should be mindful of keeping out of situations where it's very difficult to get out. The vote of a faithless elector is nothing short of an attempt at a coup d'etat, and the legitimate responses to that kind of thing can be much worse than some party activist being kicked out of a ceremonial office; I wish the judges hadn't decided we would have to g eveno farther down that road to solve this problem in the future.
