Fascinating article by James Stewart in the New York Times on how right-wingers (you know it: some of them funded by the Koch boys) created a metaphor about broccoli that may well drive the U.S. Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of health care reform. Opponents scoff at its appropriateness — forced consumption of broccoli compared with mandates in a national health care system — but the inventors may get the last laugh.
