Conservative doublethink

Say what you like about Obamacare (and I have my issues with it), but at least try to be consistent. Attorneys general, mostly Republicans, are suing to stop it. I thought that conservatives, especially anti-gay conservatives like Ken "One Issue" Cuccinelli, didn't want unelected activist judges to protect individual liberty against democratically elected legislatures. It just goes to show that being a conservative means knowing when to cheer for democracy and when to say that America is a republic, not a democracy.

I also like the discussion of the interstate-commerce clause. If they genuinely think that way, why didn't they say so when the issue of medical marijuana was before the courts?
