Monty Python skit or SCOTUS decision?

If this is Friday at the Court, it must be Chief Justice John Roberts (of the living in glass houses Robertses) day to get out of his bed on the side of the Constitution.

Today, after denying the legislature its constitutional prerogatives in King v. Burwell, John Roberts is a born again believer in judicial restraint (in his dissent);
...this Court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be. The people who ratified the Constitution authorized courts to exercise "neither force nor will but merely judgment." The Federalist No 78...A. Hamilton....
Which happens to be exactly the reference Justice Scalia made yesterday is HIS dissent in King v. Burwell, when he and Roberts were on opposite sides!

Quit your day jobs...Pleeease.
