A 4-4 supreme court could make things interesting in a contested election.

Mitt Romney is about to betray every one who ever voted for him by blocking her replacement.

That will make four Rs that won't vote until after the election. I think that already puts the kibosh on a new justice before the election. Not to mention it doesn't seem there will be time anyway. We're talking like 50 days, and we saw how long all the investigations dragged on last time, with the help of some milquetoast republicans.

Something in me says that President Trump has precalculated every contingency possible for every date of her passing and has everything  pretty much automated.

It was only a few days ago that the Trump admin talked about their new "short list" for a new justice. Given today's news, it made me think that the higher seats of gov already had information that she was in her final days and were preparing. Both parties.

Rest In Peace, Ms. Ginsberg.

I don't want to stretch the analogy, but sometimes he actually reminds me of Patton.

OK, OK, don't press me on that one too much. But sometimes....

I didn't agree with her politically, philosophically, or morally. But she stuck to her principles, I'll give her that. May her family find comfort and peace.

That sums it up for me. I didn't agree with her views and opinions, but I respected her as a person. I hoped that she would retire gracefully and spend her last days enjoying her family, but I guess that wasn't the way she wanted to go out. So be it.

R.I.P.

RIP, RBG. Sympathy and condolences to your family.

I'm quite sure that the Democrats already have affidavits, depositions, and sworn statements attesting to the most grotesque and perverse criminal behaviors imaginable from Trump's nominee to replace Ms. Ginsburg; they just have to wait for Trump to officially nominate someone so they'll know whose name to fill in on those affidavits, depositions, and sworn statements.

RINOs may be a problem - Murkowski, Collins, and Romney may decide against voting for any Trump nominee before the election or in a (potential) lame duck session afterwards. If McConnell and Graham don't push a Trump nominee forward, a LOT of GOP voters will regard this as a deep betrayal of trust and either stay home for the election or (shudder) vote Biden, just out of spite for being backstabbed (again!) by the GOP leadership. And if things DO move forward, look for antifa/BLM to make things sporty again.

And of course, ABCNBCCBSCNNMSNBC will be hysterical for the next month and a hall no matter what.

Bumpy road ahead . . .

The sources describes the list of potential nominees as very short and including at least one woman. U.S. Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett

 Evil . This.



It's funny and kind of sad she stayed on under the assumption Clinton would get to name her replacement.

The Tinfoil in me thinks she hung on until precisely the right moment to cause the most disruption
