That leaves Chief Justice John Roberts, who was uncharacteristically quiet. If I had to guess, Roberts is less than pleased to find this political hot potato back in the lap of a court he devoutly wants the public to see as nonpartisan. Further, having been identified, and assailed by conservatives, as the late-deciding fifth vote to uphold the Affordable Care Act last time around, Roberts wanted to avoid any soupçon of hand-tipping.
Dude, as long as Progress has wrought Politics in Everything, having the SCOTUS reduced to Colonel Nathan Jessup meets a Commie babysitter seems mostly inevitable.
Is JohnnyRob going to find a way to reject what his lyin’ eyes tell him? Will the Lefty bimbo squad on the Court get him to do some more mental gymnastics? Can he find some way to legislate creatively again? Did the last election have consequences, but not “consequences” consequences? Has this godforsaken ObamaCare farce not gone on long enough?
One hopes Roberts takes this opportunity to un-soil himself.
Prediction: no matter what the verdict, the ObamaCare zombie is still going to be staggering about, groaning for “Brainz”. It’s time for actual, no-kidding, voter-mandated reform.
I hope that the @GOP crafts its 2016 campaign as “The Second Reconstruction”. It would be cooler still if the GOP actually meant it.
