Lunch Buffet

I rarely watch Fox, and having decided to track conservative reaction to the Court decision, I’ve really got a headache. Time to look elsewhere:

* At Volokh Conspiracy, David Bernstein offers fascinating evidence that Kennedy dissent was originally draft as majority, then Roberts flipped.

* Romney statement on decision did not follow Tax! Tax! Tax! message. Clearly a prefab speech.

* Both Fox and CNN initially misreported decision as striking down mandate. Yuk, yuk.

* European markets close with small rally as hope springs eternal of EU summit non-failure.

* House plunging ahead with Holder contempt vote this afternoon. Will anyone notice? If not, was that the plan?

And in non-political news:

* Gaga’s new single, “Princess Die,” a real buzzkill.

Back after a mental health break.
