LOL, and I've yoinked it for future use if that's OK.

And she really is that tough. Just the pancreatic cancer bit is impressive. My friend's mom was diagnosed with it and died maybe 45 days later. And even though doctors are supposed to be objective, you just KNOW that a few of them are thinking, "You CAN'T die before the January."

What's with the worry? This Senate has already established it won't confirm a nominee at this point in the election cycle. We have no reason to expect they'd reverse themselves and risk exposing themselves as hypocrites.

God, this is f*cking terrifying, her continued illness.  I'm not sure any more that she can hang on until January 21.  And if she can't, McConnell already has a young far-right judge lined up for immediate confirmation.  I predict it would take maybe 3 weeks, tops.  Probably more like 2, since they can change the rules at will with a simple majority.

shiat.

Why do I have this sinking feeling that Trump will send in DHS to execute the four liberal justices?

I made that like three RBG hospitalizations ago, and I'm glad I didn't have to be the one to post it this time.

A strategically placed spitball would do it at this point.

I mean, I'd be down for a kidney or part of my liver given the gravity of SCOTUS shifting further right.  Who would even be the "moderate" judge if that went down?  Gorsuch?  Sure as hell isn't Kegstand McDudebro, Alito, or Snoremas.

It's weird how close to disaster the US feels.

Will the US electorate vote against tyranny... or for it?

If Trump loses, will he abide by that vote.... or try to fight it?

If Trump fights the vote, will Ruth still be on the SCOTUS?

We're basically at flip a coin... heads you're a democracy, tails you aren't.

That we have to watch this elderly woman and farking pray nothing bad happens or we're all screwed is ghoulish, and a sign that the system is deeply broken.

That seat is racing right no matter who wins.

Maybe this can be a lesson Americans internalise for the long haul. But I doubt it...

Then the stupidity will start with either impeaching judges or padding the Supreme Court with each super majority...

McConnell keeps sending her poisoned apples as gifts. She is far too smart to open them.

And if she passes before the election, Donnie will contest the results and. . .let's not go down that road.

Not that I'm wishing death upon her, but I'm curious to see what would happen if she passed on Inauguration Day. Who would shiz themselves more, Trump, McConnell or the entire Federalist Society?

I'm not sure what your point is.

The new Senate comes to order before Inauguration Day, so assuming the Dems won back control, Trump couldn't make a last minute appointment.

And if RBG died during the lame duck session, I imagine there are enough parliamentary tactics the Democrats could use to burn time.

Sure her vanity has put us on the precipice of total Republican domination of the court for a generation, but the important thing is that she lives her best life. The rest of the country suffering is a small price to pay for that.

The entire Federalist Society.

This book about RBG is good for teenagers and middle schoolers. If you have a girl in your family who is paying attention to the news, you might buy her this book for the role model and also to explain why people care about RBG so much. (I bought it because I was curious about RBG's pop culture image).

In a prefect world, Thomas, Alito and Kavanaugh drop dead 45 minutes after Biden is sworn in. RBG retires but lives another decade. Biden nominates four 30  year old clones of Thurgood Marshall. John Roberts, sensing that his judicial legacy will be forever tainted, steps down. Joe nominates everyone's pal B-Rock the Islamic Shock as Head Negro In Charge of Justice.

She's too dedicated to die. I'm not sure she has an angry bone in her body.

On the other hand, to be a fly on the wall in her home when she comes across the latest bullshiat from Trump or his minions, or Justice Thomas, we might get a different impression
 
2020-08-01 4:24:04 PM  
I am beginning work on an animatronic duplicate to replace her if necessary. It really only has to fool conservatives and they have proven themselves terrible at recognizing (or even acknowledging) the humanity of those with whom they disagree.
 
2020-08-01 4:24:47 PM  
Every week or so, I think of her.
