So, Roberts, despite my fearless prediction, went all Fat Tony with his “evil judicial lawmakers” rant, apparently deciding his reputation as a Republican needed the buffing more than his judicial legacy did. Not that it will do him much good now he has perpetually branded himself as Obama’s healthcare enabler to generations of bitter wingnunts. The best bit – thanks to Obama and John Roberts, the life expectancy of bitter wingnuts in many states has skyrocketed. That’s a lot more sweet, sweet tears to savor.
I was going to mine the Supreme dissents (pdf) for yucks, like how Scalia thinks hippy jokes are cutting edge comedy and California has broken off the West Coast and is rapidly sailing east on a magic cloud of potsmoke and buttsex, but thankfully the Wonkettes got there before me and saved me the trouble. Scalia’s dissent is worth a read if you want to see angry, ranty hypocrisy at its funniest, but is perhaps best left for gleeful contemplation at another time.
For tonight is a night to celebrate a fine and happy day – a day to marry, to be married or hunt down sweaty monkey sex with the one you’re going to marry – so I am just going to leave you with this, because Biden:

[ETA: Yes, I know it’s probably a fake twitter feed, but I’d lay money that this is actually what Joe Biden is doing right now…]
And this, because it’s sweet and simple and it made me cry. It’s celebration time, kiddies. Kiss your husbands, kiss your wives, kiss whoever will let you. Straight people, enjoy your marriages while they’re still legal.
Cheers, and mine’s a margarita.
