Default Ruth Bader Ginsburg Missing Work

The Fat Lady, or should I say, Old Lady, is about to sing.

Too much ego to bow out during the Obama Administration, she will now be giving Trump a 3rd Supreme Court appointment. Poetic justice.

And people are all, best wishes... hope you get better. Come on. Don't mean to be insensitive, but the old girl has had a good run. It's just over. She broke her ribs because she couldn't stand. Then the lung cancer. And those ribs are still hurting. Alyssa Milano wants to give her a lung... and her ribs... and her husband... on Thursdays. I don't know what Alyssa thinks Ruth will do with her husband, but it seems clear, she wants him out of HER hair on Thursdays. Paparazzi take note. Alyssa is up to no good on Thursdays.

How many days she gonna miss before she gets fired??

Boy, GIVING Trump No 3. She is probably burning through her pain meds every 10 minutes. Not from the pain, but from the rage over her own screwup.

There is already a conservative majority, so Ginsberg's seat isn't going to rock the boat like Kavanaugh's did. She is expected back by the February sitting by and my bet is she will make it. She works out, is very fit for 85, and is tougher than the leather on the black 195's I used to have.

Not to make the point that Kavanaugh was a terrible pick, but let's watch and see if Kavanaugh plays law or Politics.

Luckily,the Supreme Court Justices are worldly, not short sighted, not prejudiced, again, Kavanaugh has to prove his mettle, the Majority of Americans Rejected him, but let's see how he plays.

Ginsburg, hopefully will stick around, but if not, finding another unqualified canidate that gets through confirmation will be tough.

You'd think. But her leaving will rock the boat for who she is, and what she represents to many.

Rumor: RBG retires on Friday. She said previously that she would retire if she were not able to do her job full steam. Her missing several days of oral arguments would not be considered full steam. So, perhaps her making good on past statement.

You can color me surprised if that happens. Below is a more likely scenario.

Oh yeah. That is totally what Nancy and Chuck want.
And throngs of liberals everywhere.
