Late Night Roundup: ‘Jiggery-Pokery’
Larry Wilmore couldn’t help but send up Justice Antonin Scalia’s bitter dissent in Thursday’s major victory for Obamacare, which the senior conservative jurist referred to as “jiggery-pokery.” Larry’s response to that term: “Actually, it sounds like some Victorian-era term for sex in a toolshed, doesn’t it?”
