First thoughts, Harris v. Quinn, Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby.

Basically:

  • ‘Constitutional law scholar,’ my white Irish middle-aged tuchis.
  • That being said, both decisions are relatively narrow. The Right was looking for grand slams; we got RBIs.
  • But remember: the people who won wanted RBIs. Harris wanted to stop getting dinged for useless union dues.  Hobby Lobby didn’t want to go out of business because the alternative was paying for drugs that they considered to be abortifacients.  They both got their wish.

And that’s it for right now.  Gotta go clean the living room.

…Wow, this was an incoherent post.

I was pretty much out and out babbling about Harris v. Quinn, at first. Not that the case isn’t important, of course – forced unionization dues – but I was treating it as this epic level court case, the universe was hanging on the results, yadda yadda.  Clearly I need a nap.

PS: Didn’t help that I kept writing it as Harley v. Quinn, either.
