The Stupidest Lawsuit Ever

What Booman said:

You may or may not be wondering (if you’ve even noticed) why I have never once written a word about the King v. Burwell case that the Supreme Court is getting ready to rule on, but the answer is pretty simple. It’s the stupidest fucking lawsuit in the history of the universe. It’s so stupid that, if the conservatives on the Court rule in favor of the plaintiffs, then there’s just no point in ever pretending that this is a serious country again.

Put another way, if I have to seriously worry about Obamacare subsidies being rules unconstitutional because of a clerical oversight, then I’ve been wasting my life and nothing I’ve written matters even the slightest bit. I have to assume to even get up in the morning and clock into work that this case will not be treated seriously by the Court.

Sometime in the next three weeks we’re going to find out just how much this Court has been turned into a wing of the Republican Party.
