I’m not a big fan of the health care reform bill, which was largely a big payoff to the insurance companies. I’m not a big fan of the SCOTUS ruling either, because it really is convoluted in many ways. But it’s really kind of fun watching the explosion of rage from the right wing, which was sure it was going to win the case. Here’s a roundup of some of the statements. From Ben Shapiro:
This is the greatest destruction of individual liberty since Dred Scott. This is the end of America as we know it. No exaggeration.
I miss Justice Harriet Miers.
Okay, that’s a pretty good line. From Ann Coulter:
John Roberts, Chickensh*t. Did Obama’s Court bashing flip Roberts? Evidence suggests a late Roberts switch.
This meme that Obama somehow intimidated the court with criticism is monumentally idiotic. FFS, the right has been blasting the Supreme Court for 80 years now.
Limbaugh the Greater (Rush) called John Roberts an “activist judge,” while Limbaugh the Lesser (David) declared Roberts to be a “Manchurian candidate.” Others have literally called Roberts a traitor and are demanding his impeachment. I should have stocked up on popcorn for this.
