Roberts Blackmail Plot!
Wayne Root, former Libertarian VP candidate asked a provocative question: Was Supreme Court Justice John Roberts Blackmailed?
His concern: Roberts’ vote in the PPACA cases.
Is the idea implausible that this same Obama administration that orders IRS attacks, then orders destruction of key evidence, would stop at nothing to save Obama’s signature achievement?
Well, then. A more ironclad argument could not have been made!
This leads to my favorite sentence of the week (perhaps the month):
Is it impossible to believe that Obama and his socialist cabal that learned from Saul Alinsky that “the ends justify the means” would hold something over a Supreme Court justice’s head?
I will confess to having LOL’d after reading that one.
The whole column (which I read only because a friend sent it me in hopes of amusing me) goes on like that and ends with: “The Obama Crime Family is in charge.” (Italics are Root’s).
Since I read this piece after the SSM ruling was handed down I couldn’t help but think that the Obama cabal is lousy at its job, since Roberts did not vote with the majority on that one. Further, what kind of crime families can only get to a measly one Justice? Sure, leave a few to show some token resistance, but why not some 7-2 and 8-1 votes? And what kind of socialist cabal worth its salt can’t get TPA through Congress?
I know, as the saying goes, grifters gotta grift, but I really do wonder about the psychological state of some of the people who produce political commentary in this country (and others, if you want to be fair). A more disturbing thought, however, is that there is an audience for this stuff.
