The SCOTUS ruling on the Voting Rights Act was released this morning, causing the left to move John Roberts from the “brilliant adjudicator” column back to “hated Bush appointee” status.

After some blowback, Winkler’s excuse was as weak as they get:

There’s only “some debate about it” if you actually have an uncle named Tom.

He also tweeted this:
