Naive Supreme Court Justices are hilarious!

Here is one of the standout moments from this week's Supreme Court hearing to decide the fate of the Affordable Care Act. "Genereal Verrilli" is the U.S. Solicitor General.

GENERAL VERRILLI: Well, this Congress, Your Honor, I ­­ I ­­-- (Laughter.)
GENERAL VERRILLI: You know, I mean, of course, theoretically ­ of course, theoretically they could.
JUSTICE SCALIA: I ­­ I don't care what Congress you're talking about. If the consequences are as disastrous as you say, so many million people without insurance and whatnot, yes, I think this Congress would act.  Link

Yes, this Congress would ACT! to save Obamacare!

Sometimes I like to wonder what color the sky is in Scalia's world. Usually, I imagine that it's a golden yellow and has clouds shaped like Jesus.
