What if Obama’s healthcare law required every American to buy a gun? How’d you feel about that?

“Never before in our history has the federal government ordered Americans to buy a product under the guise of regulating commerce. Imagine if this bill were that in order to protect our communities and homeland security, every American had to buy a gun. Can you imagine the reaction across the country to that?”

Andrew Malcolm’s Top of the Ticket articles are golden.

Ken Cuccinelli has not been a well-known public figure — until now.

He’s the attorney general of Virginia, who wasn’t given much chance of succeeding in his lonely legal challenge to President Obama’s beloved healthcare legislation designed to change whatever you believe in on that subject.

But then, oops, Federal District Judge Henry Hudson on Monday agreed with the Virginia AG, declaring a crucial part of the law unconstitutional. Full details here, including the opinion’s complete text.

Cuccinelli’s victory which, of course, the Democratic administration will appeal, is but one of several legal challenges to the measure  wending their way through the nation’s arcane legal system. Arguments resume in a similar federal case in Florida on Thursday. Nothing will be finally resolved until the Supreme Court gets it, accepts it, decides it and a lot of lawyers’ financial health benefits.

So in the intervening months, possibly years, we’re left with plenty to argue over as both sides seek to make their case to the jury of public opinion.
