Supreme Court upholds Obamacare individual mandate as a tax

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why the selection process for Supreme Court justices is so apocalyptic: one side is out to select intelligent people who care about the Constitution and the other side is out to find enough ideological wingnuts to cram its unconstitutional vision down the throats of the country. This is also an object lesson about choosing moderate or relatively unknown justices (John Roberts): they will spend most of the time looking like they respect the Constitution and ruling in ways that are consistent with that respect but when it matters most, when the issue is extremely political and the going is tough, they can and will bury a knife in your back. Goddamn Bush... when he tried to feed us Harriet Meirs, we should have known that his administration's judgement about justices was horrible; we only got an excellent jurist like Alito because Bush was trying to kiss up to the conservatives who might have otherwise turned their back on him.
