Dahlia Lithwick makes a good living writing Supreme Court commentary where she utterly misrepresents conservative justices' positions and knocks down the strawmen. That she got a National Magazine Award for three such columns about the health-care cases says more about the National Magazine Award than Lithwick's work. Ramesh Ponnuru's takedown of one of the columns should have been disqualifying by itself; we earlier noted other devastating criticism of the columns, and have had no shortage of other Lithwick critiques, though I've largely stopped reading her for the sake of my blood pressure.
