On the politics

Very briefly, there are some in the blogosphere very desperate to find a silver lining in the nonsensical contortions of Chief Justice John Roberts. The theory goes that Roberts somehow knew that upholding this joke of a tax/not-a-tax law would re-energize the Tea Party, short-circuit an effort by President Obama and his allies on the left to vilify the Court and possibly even pack the court a la FDR, et cetera, et cetera, ad infinitum.

Hogwash.

The idea that Roberts is some sort of Karl Rove-ian super-genius who is somehow setting in motion a chain of events that will hand the GOP the presidency and an even larger supermajority in both houses of congress than even the Democrats enjoyed briefly in 2007-08 is delusional.

Roberts is no modern-day Hari Seldon manipulating the masses in order to make us a stronger constitutional republic.

Oh, and one more note on the law: What kind of hallucinogen is this guy under the influence of?
