Sic Semper Tyrannis

As the right continues to froth about the mouth over the threat of poor Americans having health care, it is instructive to read some reasoned legal opinion about the sheer fatuousness of the right's case to use the courts to kill the plan (see Balkin's sharp "If you can't stop the bill, just have another Bush v. Gore."

Also interesting are the roots of the health plan in "RomneyCare" and the Heritage Foundation

The Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (yes, the same moralistic AG who ordered Virginia's public universities and colleges to rescind policies that banned discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation) is going to sue to stop the tyranny of us all having to buy health insurance.

No doubt this means that the Commonwealth will soon stop the tyrannical state abuse of power which forces us all to buy car insurance. Sic Semper Tyrannis

South Carolina is apparently also threatening to pursue a legal remedy to this out break of majority rule. This means some good political theatre. After all, the last time the state right wingers postured in South Carolina in this way was that little episode when ol' Governor Sanford categorically refused to take one thin dime of federal bailout funds but soon ended up in Argentina in the arms of his soulmate.
