John Roberts just blew my mind.

  1. Right? I read something suggesting that the extremism of the four dissenting judges may have been what pushed Roberts to uphold ACA. I bet those dissenting opinions read more like blog posts than Supreme Court decisions.

    • It makes me think that the Senate Democrats rolling over on Alito may be as cowardly and damaging as rolling over on Iraq. It was clear as day that he was the second coming of Scalia, and Senate Democrats should have barred no holds in keeping him off the Court.

  2. I was beyond surprised when I saw the breakdown on the decision. I had read that Roberts did not want the court to be seen as ideologues.

    • Roberts had a sterling record before joining the court; it makes sense that he wouldn’t want to share a legacy with the three clowns on the ultra-right. Scalia is a classless, shameless buffoon, Thomas is a mute right-wing rubber stamp, and Alito is Scalia-in-training. All three are activists in the extreme–decide first if you agree with the law, then reverse-engineer a legal argument to support your personal opinion. In Scalia’s case, you can also count on insults and bullying, just to make certain there are no illusions about his character and professionalism.
