JOHN PODHORETZ: “The panicked reception in the mainstream media of the three-day Supreme Court health-care marathon is a delightful reminder of the nearly impenetrable parochialism of American liberals. . . . The strength of the conservative arguments only came as a surprise to Toobin, Greenhouse and others because they evidently spent two years putting their fingers in their ears and singing, ‘La la la, I’m not listening’ whenever the conservative argument was being advanced.”

UPDATE: Chris Matthews: I’m pretty surprised to learn that the mandate might be unconstitutional. “I was totally unprepared because of the way people talked.”
