A new drinking game

So after reading my roughly 500th ACA-litigation-related brief, motion, or filing of some sort, I think I have gotten a little punchy. But it occurs to me that a great new drinking game for those ACA litigation buffs who sit around on Friday nights drinking beers -- a huge cohort, I am sure -- would be to read aloud briefs filed by the challengers, and take turns drinking when the word "unprecedented" is used.

I'm not saying it is inaccurate, mind you. But let's just say the level of the use of this one adjective in this litigation has been, well, unprecedented.
