Whatever we want to say about it, I still can't understand this decision's circular logic. It is unconstitutional for the government to mandate an individual to buy insurance... but it's okay to make him pay a tax if he doesn't honor the mandate.

I think Obama has a picture of Roberts having sex with a goat.

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision upholding the Obama administration's health care legislation was a victory for the president, his administration and his party. Their most ambitious legislative achievement has not been nullified, and they are not left in obvious disarray.

But it is only a partial victory and in some ways not a victory at all, both in the short run electorally and in the long run in terms of the constitutional order.

Politically Obamacare, as its critics call it, remains highly unpopular. It's possible that the court decision will boost its support, but unlikely.

Most voters...
