Not a Serious Question

This is absolutely not a prediction. It's not a serious question. It's just a question.

If Bush were to lose the election, what would happen if, in the interest of the war on terror, he were to declare some sort of martial law and postpone or invalidate the election results?

What is US law on this subject? How would the branches of government react?

As I said, this is most certainly not a prediction. It's hard for me to imagine any US politician doing this, even one in the current administration. It's hard for me to imagine the legislative and judicial branches acceding to such a move. It's hard for me to imagine the military supporting it, beyond a small group particularly loyal to the current President. It's just a question. An idle musing.

Of course, I'm off to Google "martial law".
