Excellent summation.

Scalia must have been getting too embarrassing for Roberts.

I assume we'll be hearing for Roberts' head on a platter soon. Conservatives are never wrong, they are just back stabbed by traitorous activist judges.

Twitter is so very entertaining right now. Sarah Palin: Obama lies, Freedom Dies. I wonder what she tweets when Bono lies?

the spin i'm hearing right now is that this will be a huge loss for Obama because the mandate being considered a tax.

So those millions of people without insurance right now (poor, middle class) will now have to pay new taxes, thus it's a tax on the base that Obama is trying to win over.

Of course I have no idea how any of this is going to work going forward (and Obama stating the Mandate is NOT a tax back in 2009). I'm sure once the dust settles, there may be some interesting aspects, but I think there is more good news than bad from this.

Canada might want to tighten their immigration laws

Those tweets have to be satire right?

ETA a quote about Chief Justice Roberts from Matthew Cooper of The Atlantic:

"When John Roberts was nominated to be chief justice in 2005, a very prominent liberal lawyer told me that he was reassured. Roberts, he noted, was a practicing attorney with years of trials under his belt -- unlike the academic Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas with his slew of government jobs and no real private practice experience. The real world experience of Roberts, this liberal lion thought, would make the Chief -- and the court -- less rigid ideologically."

More hilarity:
