If you didn't know, next week the Supreme Court is going to hear arguments (pro and con) on ObamaCare, aka the Orwellian-named "Affordable Care Act" that was forced, rammed, pork-barreled, bridge-to-nowhered down the American people's throat. I'm crossing my fingers that the High Court will at least shoot down the individual mandate, thus robbing ObamaCare of its key -- and only -- funding mechanism.
We shall see...
One optimistic indicator that I see on Memeorandum today is the left already calling the Supreme's potential striking down of ObamaCare "political."
For example, some lefty writer at Slate is priming the pump of his fellow collectivist readers' ire and attention to the possibility that the five conservative Justices will strike the law down as a cynical bow to public sentiment, the rabid right-wing, tea party freaks (I'm paraphrasing but you get the point.)
I think this kind of sentiment on the left at least shows they think they might lose and they are already throwing the meme out there that (if) the Supreme Court strikes the law down, it was nothing more than overtly political move unrelated to ObamaCare's Constitutionality; ie. an "illegitimate" move on the Supreme Court's part, just like Bush v. Gore in 2000.
I'm heartened that I saw this today.
