Last week, I opined that we had been robbed by The Dread Pirate Roberts. If that’s not bad enough, Patrick Archbold, who writes for my favorite blog Creative Minority Report says it’s worser than I thought:
If reports are to be believed, the Chief Justice Roberts decision just went from worse to worser.
CBS reports that not only did Roberts change his vote on the healthcare mandate from overturning
to upholding, he did so for fear of the liberal media.
Roberts’ change of heart was driven by left-wing media anger around the possibility that the law would be overturned. Roberts reads the papers, and is very concerned about the Court’s image.
So the Chief Justice knew the right thing to do but instead chose the easy thing to do.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’d rather deal with a thief than a coward. But I have no stomach for a guy whose both.
