The 'conventional wisdom' is never wrong, right?

That was quick. The jury is back already. The "conventional wisdom" has decided that the US Supreme Court will declare the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional, 5-4, courtesy of the conservative judges (Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, Alito) plus Kennedy. We won't actually learn what decision the justices reached until late June. But the CW says that's just a trifling detail. Obamacare is toast. Trust us. Never mind that there are few, if any, bona fide constitutional scholars among those providing the CW. They are mostly the same windbags who get it wrong more often not. It is notable that the fella who pushed to get get Obamacare in front of SCOTUS is POTUS -- President Obama, a Havard-trained, constitutional law professor. Gee, I wonder if Mr. Obamacare himself knows something the CW doesn't?
