One of the first cases we studied in law school was Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Company. The "carbolic smoke ball" was a rubber ball with a tube attached. The ball was filled with carbolic acid. The user inserted the tube into his or her nose and squeezed the ball, releasing the enclosed vapors into the nose, causing the nose to run and the disease to be flushed away. What disease? The carbolic smoke ball was advertised to "positively cure" coughs, colds, catarrh, asthma, eroechitis, loss of voice, sore throat, "throat deafness," snoring, sore eyes, influenza, hay fever, headaches, croup, whooping cough, and neuralgia.
Last night, Americans were treated to a televised version of the carbolic smoke ball when The One took to the airwaves and delivered his "plan" for health care reform. Now that the tsunami of media gushing has subsided somewhat, let's take a look at some of The One's claims.
