Von Hoffmann Award Nominee

Jun 29 2012 @ 12:15pm

A reader calls me out:

I love the Dish and all, but sorry – citing an American Bar Association survey is hardly "calling" the outcome. If you had come out in March and said, "Roberts will be the deciding vote in upholding the ACA," then that would have been calling it. Besides, what about your statement published at Reason last week?

[SCOTUS] will strike down the mandate alone.

If anything, you should nominate yourself up for a Von Hoffmann award on this one.

Busted. I'm not clairvoyant. And Reason forced me to predict something. But in the original, I cited the Dish, not me personally. And we did air and link to the argument that Roberts would save the ACA.
