Whelp, time to be looking at putting another drunken rapist on the bench.

Well, she gets infections all the time.  Hopefully this is something relatively benign.  Dotard gets another appointment, then the Senate and WH need to be flipped so Joe can expand the court to 13 judges.

Read a more in-depth article.  She'd been experiencing a fever and chills, so went into the hospital.  Her doctors cleaned out a bile duct stent and have her on antibiotics.  She's expected to be in for a few days.

Keep in mind that she actually heard cases from her hospital bed via teleconference earlier this year.

Good thing the Senate doesn't allow votes on SCOTUS this close to the election.

Install this harridan in the Golden Throne of Terra if you have to, but she is not allowed to die until January!

Pray for her recovery.

You may not mean it, but it might cancel out some red-hatted idiot praying for her death.

No, it's OK.  The president is white.

Mitch McConnell is going to need to call a doctor in four hours to avoid permanent damage.

If it were McConnell he'd be saying that that dumbass reasoning only applies to Presidents who have been termed out. Which is what the GOP will be saying if the worst happens and a seat opens up between now and January.
 
2020-07-14 5:58:24 PM  
I wish her well and hope she can wait to retire once Biden is POTUS and can nominate Barack Obama as her eventual replacement.

New congress is seated Jan 3 2021 at noon. She can make it until then.

The very last thing we need is for RBG to die and the Donny/McConnell hydra to replace her with someone who makes Kavanaugh look like a dirty pinko Commie socialist.

From your lips to God's ears, as they say. 

I may have sincere disagreements with some of her opinions, but I've never questioned her personal integrity like I have other members of the Court.

Do you have any doubt that they have a plan in place to ram an appointment through if she drops at 11:00 AM?

It should be a message sent to the "I won't vote for Biden" Bernie supporters but the ones I know are determined to throw their temper tantrum regardless of the consequences.

And this, children, is how the Supreme Court went from 11, to 13, to 25, to 111 justices in just 20 years. Once each side started adding new judges when their "team" was in power, it just sort of snowballed out of control. At one point President Ivanka Trump added new judges each time a case was found not in her favour, leading to dozens added in a single month. The only stopping the exponential growth was the Civil War 2 which kicked off almost 200 years to the day of the original.

you think they'll bother with an excuse for the hypocrisy?  *sigh* I remember when I was young and naive.

53 would be my suggestion for an opening offer, one for each state.*  Then negotiate down from there.

* fixing the ridiculous exclusion of DC, PR, and Guam+Pacific Islands not already named "Hawaii" having been taken care of first.

Dear uncompromising progressives, Bernie Bro's and other flavors of Never Bideners;

YOU ARE NOT VOTING FOR JOE BIDEN. YOU ARE VOTING FOR RUTH BADER GINSBURG'S REPLACEMENT.

Please keep that in mind.

Thank you for your attention.

If RBG were to leave the bench before the election and the Republicans pushed through a new justice before we vote in Nov. (or if Biden wins, before Biden takes office in Jan. 2021) then I would consider that a declaration of war on this country.

Can we feed her a thousand psycho conservatives a day to keep her alive?  Because that sounds like a win-win.
