4. If someone fires a bullet at your head, you know it missed by a mile, so talking about it is "fear"?
This doesn't become an issue ONLY if the supreme court decides to exercise their option to intervene. It's an issue now because they have that opportunity. They could get in and get out real quick just to say it's a political issue for the Congress to decide. Most in the media would cheer their "not getting involved in politics", but this would force the claims into the Congress and the media and get the Supreme Court off the hook, seemingly, in more or less one fell swoop.

Dude, lawsuits in ten or more states overall don't just go away, except from the perspective of people just watching tv or their computers. They go away because at least some knowledgeable people take some actions of various kinds so that the suits are seen as untenable.

If these suits were seen for what they are -- attacks that attempt to overrule democracy -- then I would agree with you that there'd be little or no chance of the Supreme Court even kicking it over to Congress. But they are not seen that way right now.
