http://twitter.com/#!/GOP/status/506524410158006272 We get that the RNC is trying to zing the White House for its rank hypocrisy on this issue.

Angry lefties scold SCOTUSblog for Hobby Lobby decision; Just one problem…

http://twitter.com/#!/JumpyNelson/status/483645678749376513 SCOTUSblog is a fantastic resource for learning about all-things related to the U.S. Supreme Court.
