At 3:30am Eastern, freshmen GOP Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee were still going strong as they tag-teamed their way through the wee hours of the night to expose Obamacare’s ravages. The two lawyers traded discourses on Commerce Clause jurisprudence, the SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare, religious liberty, and enumerated powers.

In a fun colloquy, the two used examples of misnamed events and objects (the 116-year Hundred Years War, New Zealand’s “Chinese gooseberries,” squirrel-haired “camel’s hair brushes”) to illuminate the rhetorical games over Obamacare’s individual mandate, “penalties,” and taxes.

Mr. Lee: Can the Senator say where Chinese gooseberries first grew?

Mr. Cruz: That is easy. New Zealand.

Mr. Lee: I thank the Senator.— Dean Clancy (@DeanClancy) September 25, 2013
