Did I Miss the Memo?

I'm no fan of semantic cuteness in politics. I'm not fond of George Lakoff's popularized books on the subject, I don't really care what ATLA calls itself, and I can't believe anyone takes Frank Luntz's memos seriously. That said, I can't help but notice that David Kopel, who delighted in using the phrase "Obamacare" until roughly late June of this year (say, last Thursday), explaining that the President "proudly embraces" it, has put up a half-dozen or so posts about the NFIB ruling since it came down and has failed to use the word once. Maybe the "Obamacare" macro on his laptop isn't working.

Volokh has been a sight to behold since Thursday. After months of gloating that the mandate would be struck down, the same bloggers who were so concerned that a decision in their favor would lead to attacks on the Court are now leading the charge to discredit Roberts as an unprincipled hack. Thank God for Orin's blogging; he has been the only VC-er more interested in the law than in right-wing ideology.
