SCOTUS Decision + ObamaCare = Internet Fun (And Not So Much)
Of course, because Americans now have a wide range of tools to express themselves online, the historic and surprising Supreme Court decision that has upheld the Obama administration’s controversial health care overhaul has been a perfect medium for the escalating debate.
There is already a Tumblr created today, with all kinds of funny captions and graphics about the Affordable Care Act — which includes the requirement that most Americans have health insurance — called, “When SCOTUS Upheld Obamacare.”
It entails a lot of interactive dancing and snapping of fingers, including by President Obama.
Meanwhile, culling the reaction on Twitter, BuzzFeed assembled a compilation of tweets called: “People Who Say They’re Moving To Canada Because Of ObamaCare.”
Thats it! I’m moving to Canada! #Obamacare

While some who posted seemed to be kidding, most who tweeted were soon inundated by responses that, um, pointed out that Canada funds a public health care system for all its citizens.
Instant education in political science and a good roiling Web goat rodeo is #ExactlyWhyILovetheInternet.
More, of course, to come.
