There’s been considerable speculation as to why Chief Justice John Roberts voted to uphold Obamacare as constitutional. Some on the right have blamed his epilepsy medication, which is only slightly less absurd than the idea that David Axelrod was planning on having Roberts offed. Really, if President Obama wanted one justice off the Supreme Court, wouldn’t it be the Giant Gas Bag of Righteous Rightwingness, Antonin Scalia? And if Roberts was dumbed down by his epilepsy medication, why didn’t the prescription work its magic when it came to him unnecessarily and without precedent limiting the commerce clause of the Constitution?
