In Sausalito overlooking S.F. Bay with my uncle, Lucky Strike nonfilters and a case of Bud. Those splendid days are long gone.

Mr. Carpenter...may I remind you of these words of an unnamed Bush aide (some say it was Rove) regarding discernible reality:

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

So if the right decides that the Constitution says something it doesn't really say...well...welcome to the new reality! This operatic farce is the tip of the iceberg.


Good point.

If passing healthcare reform was unconstitutional, then isn't repeal of healthcare reform also unconstitutional?

There's nothing in the Constitution saying that Congress has the power to repeal laws that it thinks are unconstitutional.
