John Roberts Lets Conservatives Down. Again.

12:08 PM 06/25/2015

By now, you've heard the Supreme Court voted 6-3 in King v. Burwell to uphold the subsidies at the heart of ObamaCare. And you probably know that Chief Justice John Roberts is being compared to David Souter --- who was nominated by the first President Bush. (This really doesn't help Jeb, does it?)

A girl I went to high school with spent a semester in Australia. She must have blossomed there, for when she returned home, she magically had an Australian accent.

The accent receded; the mockery endured.
