Quote of the Week

On the Liberals' Supreme Court Shock:

"The panicked reception in the mainstream media of the three-day Supreme Court health-care marathon is a delightful reminder of the nearly impenetrable parochialism of American liberals. They're so convinced of their own correctness — and so determined to believe conservatives are either a) corrupt, b) stupid or c) deluded — that they find themselves repeatedly astonished to discover conservatives are in fact capable of a) advancing and defending their own powerful arguments, b) effectively countering weak liberal arguments and c) exposing the soft underbelly of liberal self-satisfaction as they do so."

"That's what happened this week. There appears to be no question in the mind of anyone who read the transcripts or listened to the oral arguments that the conservative lawyers and justices made mincemeat out of the Obama administration's advocates and the liberal members of the court." — John Podhoretz, Commentary Magazine Editor and Former New York Post Editorial-Page Editor


  1. I wish it were so, but if any respect for Conservatives trickles down to academia or any Leftist dining table, I will be shocked.

    Mincemeat Obamacare's advocates certainly are, but I find it impossible to believe that Obamatons can be brought to conclude that Conservatives are other than corrupt, stupid, or deluded. Instead, the Obamatons will wring their hands that virtuous Leftists stood helplessly by as stupid Conservatives bribed corrupt Conservative lawyers to argue their case in front of deluded Conservative justices.

  2. Quite Rightly, your conclusion is pretty much how liberals will view their latest debacle. Come to think of it, this is pretty much their regular fall back line. Who do you think was more inept, Justice Breyer or Solicitor Virrilli? Tough call, right?
