Notorious RBG Retirement?

Could it be that the Dems can get a more centrist or even liberal replacement of RBG, if they agree to cave in on Trump's wall?

Who might her replacement be?

She's so "badass."

many of the judge names that have been floated so far are women: Amy Coney Barrett, Joan Larsen, Amul Thapar, Raymond Kethledge, Britt Grant; Thomas Hardiman, and Neomi Rao.

Ginsburg has said before that she has no plans of retiring anytime soon. When commenting on her former fellow Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens serving on the court until he was 90 years old, Ginsburg said, “[H]e stepped down when he was 90, so I think I have about at least five more years.”

She has otherwise said that she “will do this job as long as [she] can do it full steam.”

Trump will likely appoint a chick this time. Amy Coney Barrett or Joan Larsen look like top choices for him at this point. They will definitely outrage the left. So, if he wants a wall, I think this might be his way to make a deal. Let the Left get something they want here.

Check out the make fun of trump threads (multiple) that have been raging for three (3) years without stop. If you find that kind of funnin' to be classier than the above, I guess that's your call. But, Democrats and Lefties get to be mocked and made fun of, too. Every time, though, someone has to white-knight, and wag fingers, because this -- this - is over the line.

Indeed. Trump is a class act deserving of class and all the respect he personally and demonstrably affords the Office of the President.

Don't mock Democrats or anyone on the Left! Even if they fall asleep during the State of the Union! Their efforts are just too important....

I expected some new power saving scheme whereby we must abandon our red, blue, and green, displays for a new fangled "low consumption" system.

The new displays cost 10 times more and drastically increase toxic chemicals released into the environment, but if you own them for 25 years you see a small net savings!

RBG just got out of surgery to have a cancerous growth removed. Trump mocks disabled people, steals children from parents, incites violence, sows division, and stokes fear and hatred. How sick, vile, and stupid someone must be to find any sort of equivalence here. You're probably one of those white guys who thinks it's unfair that black people are allowed to say the n-word and white people aren't. God you're pathetic.
The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots. ―H.L. Mencken

Bad government is the natural product of rule by those who believe government is bad. —Thomas Frank

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. —Einstein
I’m a nationalist. —Trump

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring
