We’ve had a few days now to process the Obamacare ruling and I’ve seen all sorts of reactions from outrage to relief. I’ve seen this common theme and idea tho that conservatives seem to think that the conservative reaction to the ruling has been a measured and rational response. Below are a couple tweets to illustrate.

Maybe it’s just human nature and it’s part of the process of demonizing the other side in order feel justified in ones own feelings but I’m here to tell you that neither party has a lock on either rationality or crazy. Believing otherwise strikes me as willful fiction. Here are a few examples of teh crazy (source):
