A 7CA panel, I should add, consisting of arch-reactionary Frank Easterbrook and two Trump nominees:
The thing about vaccine mandates is that they are utterly banal. (I had to get a measles vaccine before I could start my current job, and I said nothing because they idea that there is any legal or moral right to expose other people to infectious diseases is extremely dumb.) The theory that you have the right not to take a vaccine as part of a public community makes as much sense as claims you have the right to drive under the influence of Fentanyl or the right to ignore traffic lights. And politicians like DeSantis who went out of there way to obstruct mandates to take the COVID-19 vaccine, suggesting either that such mandates are unusual or that they shouldn’t apply to the COVID-19 vaccines because they aren’t as good/important, did incredible amounts of damage.
Speaking of people doing a huge amount of damage:

There is a very real chance a swing state will vote for Johnson three times if you’re wondering why we’re so screwed.
