We have death panels now. We have massive taxes, tax increases. We have taxes on our behavior.

And now there’s a theory that somebody got to John Roberts. I really hate even passing this on. When I say, “Somebody got to John Roberts,” one of the guesses is Obama’s public assertions that the court was going to marginalize itself and become irrelevant is something people were speculating might have influenced Roberts. Not that somebody threatened him. I don’t want anybody putting words in my mouth. It’s just going around a blog and it will probably be amplified on as the day goes on.
It doesn’t matter as to the outcome whether or not Chief Justice Roberts was intimidated and threatened, but it does matter. Finding out conclusively won’t change anything, but it will be quite eye-opening for people if it is established that the public intimidation of the chief justice by Obama and senators and so forth resulted in a changed vote.
the Volokh Conspiracy. It’s a post by gentleman named David Bernstein. Scalia’s dissent, at least on first quick perusal, reads like it was originally written as a majority opinion (in particular, he consistently refers to Justice Ginsburg’s opinion as ‘The Dissent’).” Earlier this week there were stories that Ruth “Buzzi” Ginsburg was writing the dissent. That did leak. And these guys are referencing it here at the Volokh Conspiracy blog, and they say that in his dissent, Scalia consistently refers to Justice Ginsburg’s opinion as the dissent.
[ES note: but, then - after exciting others and starting the rumors - then he goes on to say it's just Roberts making a name for himself. Sounds like screaming "fire" to me.]
