It has been a surreal week, what with what is arguably the most conservative supreme court of the post WWII era delivering stunning blows to the right on two landmark cases (The affordable care act aka Obamacare, and the Arizona Immigration Law”.
For over two years now we have been hearing how the GOP and the Tea Party are the proud defenders of the constiution. And yet, this conservative court has essentially told them they have a pretty poor grasp on the constiution. And the evil marxist, socialist, communist, whatever ist democrats seem to have it fairly well down.
Now, I’d like to believe the right is capable of learning from it’s mistakes. But clearly not. I mean- we have the rights presidential candidate, who proposed, supported, and passed the law, including an individual mandate, and on which the ACA was modelled now insisting he will repeal it if elected. Not because he made a mistake as governor, not because the law was bad for MA, but because…well…I guss because of lot of his supporters, who by and large don’t even understand the law, are against it. (and apparently ignorant of the fact Romney proposed/supported/and signed what is essentially the same law)
But hey, it was only a few months ago that scientists came to the obvious conclusion- america is too dumb for democracy.
