I've been stewing over Roberts' snide little line, "It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices," over the weekend, getting madder every time I think about it.
All those laws you guys have struck down as unconstitutional over the last couple centuries, whose "political choices" were you protecting us from those times? Had those other laws been imposed on us by insidious outsiders or something, so you could protect us from their consequences, but we gotta bend over and take this one because it turns out Nancy Pelosi is not actually from Betelgeuse?
The reaction of the GOP loyalists has been amusing, too. They've spent the last several days staggering around the internet, sporting a shiner and telling us they ran into a doorknob and that John Roberts really does love them and he always buys them flowers to make up afterwards. It's just pathetic.
Keep telling me how it's important for me to vote for Romney because of the potential SCOTUS nominations coming up, and we wouldn't want Obama to get to appoint a liberal like that Roberts guy. (And let's not forget that the Massachusetts governor was for health care before he was against it...)
