My pal and co-author of Power Over Pain, Eric Chevlen, just e-mailed to tell me I was quoted by Rush Limbaugh today. I didn’t hear it, but found the transcript. It’s from this SHS entry on the overturning of Obamacare. From the Rush Limbaugh Show:
It’s well known that Judge Roger Vinson ruled yesterday that the individual mandate exceeded the powers of the federal government under the Commerce Clause. But he also ruled that because the law lacked a severability clause and the law’s proponents had argued that the individual mandate was a necessary part of the scheme, the entire law was invalid. Wesley J. Smith explains the implications: ‘That means that under the ruling, the law is void and cannot be implemented from this point forward. The Administration’s legal remedy is to seek a stay of the ruling pending appeal. It cannot just defy a federal court ruling. If it tries, the plaintiffs should go to court for the injunction and/or seek an order of contempt against the administration,'” which I suggested yesterday one of the attorney generals of the 26 states suing the regime do. “Pretending that the ruling doesn’t change anything when it unequivocally does, would be both a petulant and extra-legal approach to governance.
This is the second time for me. He once kindly quoted me at length from an article I for the Weekly Standard wrote about Terri Schiavo. Excellence in broadcasting, indeed.
Aside: For those interested in poetry, Eric has a new poetry book out called Triple Crown, which is “the only triple heroic crown of sonnets in the English language.”
