Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fractured three ribs and suffered some other injuries in a fall Wednesday.
According to the Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg, Ginsburg requested police to take her to George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. early Thursday after experiencing discomfort overnight.
The aging justice has had a series of health problems over the years. She broke two ribs in a fall in 2012 and had two prior bouts with cancer. In 2014, she had a stent implanted to open a blocked artery and was also was hospitalized after a bad reaction to medicine in 2009.
Now, a Leftist volunteered to send the 85-year-old justice her own ribs and any other needed internal organ.
Hollywood actress and leftist activist Actress Alyssa Milano offered to donate both of her kidneys to Ginsburg. You read that right — both of her kidneys!
“Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays,” tweeted Milano Thursday morning.

Well, it is Hollywood, and husbands are a dime a dozen.
I’d like to see Ginsburg take Milano up on the two kidneys. I’m not sure Milano has really thought this one through, so I see a civil suit in the future, should Justice Ginsburg execute on this verbal agreement.
Notice Milano didn’t offer her brain. Because that would require her to actually have one.
Since we’re having fun with this, let’s look at a few more oddities about Milano’s tweet.
I’m no doctor, but I’m having trouble understanding how Milano’s kidneys, lung, and husband could help heal Ginsburg’s ribs.
The hip bone connected to the…thigh bone. The thigh bone connected to the…well you get the picture. Nowhere in that little handy bone song is the rib bone connected to the kidneys, lung, and husband.
I understand Twitter, and how once you hit “send”, there’s no turning back. But this is not a simple typo. Like,
“Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my crib” to convalesce. This was just a statement we’ve come to expect out of the people who believe in the “science” of global climate change.
Put another way, Milano really is that stupid to believe she could give away her kidneys, and remain alive.
I wish I had bothered to look at her husband’s tweet response. What must he be thinking to be thrown in the offering like an afterthought?
I suspect he’s like Gwenyth Paltrow’s ex-husband, and just happy to get out! Whatever it takes, just RUN away from that crazy woman.
If they do divorce, he will have Justice Ginsburg to thank, at least partially.
Sadly, all the body parts and soon-to-be ex-husbands of Milano can’t save Ginsburg. She’s toast, as we pointed out earlier in a snarky post:
Ginsburg is the oldest Justice at 140-something. Thus, it’s time to let it go.
How many more State of the Union addresses can we watch her pass out at. One has to wonder if she goes catatonic during SCOTUS deliberations.
I know narcoleptics who have a better attention span.
And what of those 3 ribs. Does anybody think that injury will heal quickly at her age? Three broken ribs might as well be brain cancer.
Ironically, if Ginsburg weren’t a SCOTUS Justice, the Democrats might be discussing her as a potential candidate for president in 2020. Ginsberg/Biden 2020
Why did she fall?
A sudden fall like the one Ginsburg took signals other major health issues.
Ginsburg has never missed Supreme Court arguments. And she apparently won’t miss these either, though the court won’t hear arguments again until November 26. After that, we theorized she would be gone, and it looks like we are right.
Rumors persist that Ginsburg will step down in Jan 2019. If you think Ginsburg is getting body parts now, just wait until Jan 2019. I see Leftist doctors who might try to make Ginsburg the new Steve Austin: the $6 million justice.
Interestingly, Leftists begged Ginsburg to step down in the first two years of President Barack Obama’s second term. At the time, Democrats controlled the Senate, thus the fate of the next appointee. However, the 1993 Clinton-appointed Ginsburg refused.
Even now, Ginsburg supposedly hired clerks for the term that extends into 2020. So prior to the fall, Ginsberg indicated no plans to retire. It looks like all that has changed.
