I thought it would be hard to beat calls to impeach Chief Justice Roberts, but once again I have underestimated the GOP caucus in the House.  From conservative darling, Rep Mike Pence:

In a closed door meeting with House Republicans, Rep. Mike Pence likened the health care ruling to Sept. 11, Politico reported. Why? Who knows. “My remarks at the Republican Conference following the Supreme Court decision were thoughtless. I certainly did not intend to minimize any tragedy our nation has faced and I apologize,” the congressman said later in a statement to Politico.

It’s just a shame that there is no one for us to invade to make this right again.
