Did anyone hear Chris Plante do his impression of Jonathan Capehart this morning? I LOLd so hard I about busted a rib!
I didn't hear it, but earlier this week he did a KILLER IMPRESSION of the Russian President, Dmitri Medjedev (sp?).
It was hysterical!
His Paul McCartney impression is also spot-on......
Not yet. I’m still laughing at Wed program, starting off with his imitation of Carville, whom he described as
“Ragin lunatic from Lousianna, James Carville, who looks like a turtle from outer space that escaped his shell. And he is a frothy and vociferous advocate for all things lefty, and he’s saying...(launches into Carville babble)...and they’ll give out the home addresses for members of the Supreme Court as a means of threatening them, which is the standard new tactic for Carville’s friends and those on the left.”
Plante only went uphill from there. That program was evisceratingly brilliant.
Dems Warn Of Grave Damage To SCOTUS If Obamacare Is Struck Down
A handful of Senate Democrats sought to assure doubtful liberals that the Supreme Court justices arent ready to strike down their crowning achievement, standing before cameras and mics Wednesday in front of the court. One warned that doing so would ruin the courts credibility.
This court would not only have to stretch, it would have to abandon and completely overrule a lot of modern precedent, which would do grave damage to this court, in its credibility and power, said Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D), a former attorney general of Connecticut.
The court commands no armies, it has no money; it depends for its power on its credibility. The only reason people obey it is because it has that credibility. And the court risks grave damage if it strikes down a statute of this magnitude and importance, and stretches so dramatically and drastically to do it.
Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) said the law has been thoroughly vetted.
As a senior member of the Finance Committee, he said, I can tell you that we had one of the most rigorous and transparent legislative processes that I have witnessed in almost 3 decades here in the Congress. We worked with some of the brightest, most thoughtful and experienced constitutional lawyers in order to make sure that the law was constitutional.
Kerry said the assumptions that tough questions from the justices will amount to striking down some or all of the Affordable Care Act are a fallacy he predicted, as the final oral arguments were transpiring inside, that it would be upheld.
Now I am glad as I think any of us whove practiced law are to see the intense questions from the justices. Theyre engaged, and they are thoughtfully working through these issues, Kerry said. But questions are a legitimate way of probing the basis of their own thinking. They are not an indication of a judgment made, or a vote ready to be cast.
Theyre working through this process as they ought to, mindful of the fact that 30 courts below them have already made a judgment upholding it.
