As the heads of those on the right continue to explode over Chief Justice Roberts deciding vote in the health care case, wingnut shock jock Michael Savage has it all figured out. From the Daily Kos:
If you’re like me, you had no idea batshit insane right-wing radio host Michael Savage was still alive. I naturally assumed that by now his desiccated remains had been found on the floor of some rural Montana bunker, diary still in hand, with his last thoughts on intricate political conspiracies coordinated by moon men, vampires and Freddie Mercury written in blood on every page. But no—apparently he still has a radio show. And his theories about why Justice John Roberts betrayed all of conservatism might actually become a thing:
“Let’s talk about Roberts. I’m going to tell you something that you’re not going to hear anywhere else, that you must pay attention to. It’s well known that Roberts, unfortunately for him, has suffered from epileptic seizures. Therefore he has been on medication. Therefore neurologists will tell you that medication used for seizure disorders, such as epilepsy, can introduce mental slowing, forgetfulness and other cognitive problems. And if you look at Roberts’ writings you can see the cognitive dissociation in what he is saying.”
Got that? Chief Justice Roberts: Too hopped up on epilepsy meds to know the law.
And just as an aside; Once again, although I am hopeful that this victory will be a boon for Obama in the coming election, I myself have serious issues with the law as written. The Volokh Conspiracy has many postings on the constitutional issues with the bill. Hop over and check a few out.
