    Re activist conservative judges overreaching to achieve the political result they wanted, see http://www.newrepublic.com/article/118803/halbig-v-burwell-ruling-anti-obamacare-lawsuit-could-backfire-gop

    Haha. It’s so funny when a political cartoon makes the opposite point of the one the cartoonist thinks he’s making. Too bad there wasn’t room for the balloon where the judge says, “Yes, he did, but we activist conservative judges have deliberately misconstrued the health care law to keep affordable insurance out of the hands of millions.”

    Separate from anyone’s personal politics, isn’t it a little odd to be using this quote on Veteran’s Day? Jefferson was talking about domestic tyrants, after all, and I don’t recall that our current veterans had to face any of those.

    There’s also Catalino’s unfortunate misstatement of the quotation, which loses the stirring cadence of Jefferson’s actual words: The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

    In any case, props to those who served.

    I don’t think a Republican-imposed requirement that members of Congress and their staff must now get their insurance on the exchanges — treating them unlike any other Americans who already have insurance through their employers and stripping them of their existing benefits — counts as “exempting.”

    They would have been treated like everyone else if not for the GOP’s political grandstanding. Nor would a special provision have been required to maintain the federal government’s employer contribution at the same level it was previously.

    And here we all thought it was some kind of Christmas miracle (or else a disturbing fixation you were going to need to seek professional help for). Thanks for the explanation.

    Props to Darrin Bell for placing “gobbledygook” in 1944, the year the term was first used. I looked it up because I thought it was a postwar coinage.

    (From Wikipedia: According to Michael Quinion on his World Wide Words website the word was first coined on 21 May 1944 by Maury Maverick, a congressman from Texas. His comments, recorded in the New York Times Magazine, were made when Maverick was the Democratic chairman of the US Congress Smaller War Plants Committee. He was being critical of the obscure language used by other committee members. The allusion was to a turkey, “always gobbledy gobbling and strutting with ludicrous pomposity”. It is sometimes abbreviated slightly to gobbledygoo.)

    Now that Vince has been identified, helping us to see that what panel 3 contains is a recommendation for Zack to tell his teacher that some of his best friends are gay (but doesn’t help us see anything funny in the panel 4 punchline), let’s return to the overlooked second panel, and its reference to “those among us with identity issues.”

    I’m not going to try figure out what that phrase is supposed to mean exactly, but the message is clear: poor Zack is struggling with the impossible task of tiptoeing around other people’s incomprehensible “issues.” No, Zack (and John and John): saying “That’s so gay” to describe something you think is bad means that you’re saying “gay” equals “bad.” Maybe I’ll start saying “That’s so Presbyterian” about anything I don’t like, and if any Presbyterians get upset I’ll just throw up my hands about how hard it is to please those among us with religious identity issues.
