Oh fffffs

Now we have TWO RGB thread?

If she DOES step down/other then you better believe that the republicans will nominate and appoint someone before the elections

If they dont then the base will not turn out for senators in states up for re-elections......

100%.....if there's an opening it will be filled before Nov
Not a chance. The Senate has proven time and again they don’t have a hair on their ass to upset the status quo.

Ok....first its bullshit

Second the bullshit was fabricated for a lame duck pres at end of term

At this point it hardly matters.....let him put another disappointment up there. Gorsuch and Kavanough have been so awful.

Thats exactly why they WILL confirm and ram it through.....they DONT want to upset the status quo.....specifically their cushy jobs in the run up to an election

They could have been better no doubt......but Trump has a learning curve.....he's demonstrated that time and time again

I'd like to see him reach out to justice thomas for "suggestions" on up and coming judges/potential

I say this not to nitpick, but to amplify your point (I think) - they can’t stop him from submitting a nominee if he chooses to, but the Senate is far too spineless to borrow a set of balls from someone to consider any nominee he does submit.

you are not nitpicking and you are absolutely correct. He can nominate someone. I should have said they would not confirm his nominee....nor would they consider it unless he won the election.

So now she's undergoing bi-weekly chemo for liver cancer recurrence, according to news reports...when is enough enough?


Seriously, if this was any one of us, our insurance companies would have pulled the plug on us years ago.

Lol.

If she'd just get on the bench and hold still, someone might just take her up on that.

I really want her to retire. For her sake, and ours.
she doesn't have much sake left, it's not like she got some knitting to do or movies to watch. Between braindead Biden, undead RGB and plastic Pelosi, Dim party is quickly turning into zombies.

members of congress have special health plans, unlike serfs they rule over. I really doubt any one of the congress critters had to wait for "elective" procedures that would put them at risk.

It's the 1980s Politburo with less intelligence and less allegiance to their nation.

Sorry for the loss of your brother.

I'm not in the medical field, but have family members who had a whole lot LESS issues, and when their kidneys shut down, there was no way to get them started again.

I don't wish anybody or their families to go through this. At a certain point, as a human being, you have to take politics out of this news.

If she is staying on because of politics, I hope it destroys her brain pronto.

Exactly how did you get that information?
I think SCOTUS has worked that way forever. It's why a federal clerkship is so prestigious for young lawyers: you spend your time there doing first drafts of really, really, really important SCOTUS decisions.

I'm sure different justices do things in different ways, but a huge amount of writing goes out over each justice's signature. It wouldn't surprise me if they called in a clerk, gave them a bullet version of their reasoning and a few soundbytes, then turned them loose to edit and approve whatever came back.

From that article:
"Ginsburg was treated for pancreatic cancer in 2019 and 2009, for lung cancer in 2018 and colon cancer in 1999."

OK:
pancreatic
lung
colon
liver

That's a whole lot of cancer going on.
