Update on Ginsburg: One foot in the grave the other on a banana peel

Ginsburg is done. She looks like death eating a cracker, and I’m sure she feels worse.

She’s missed lots of work. And given the short schedule of SCOTUS work, it’s a pretty big deal to miss days.

The Left are so optimistic about her recovery, you can bet there are many people willing to donate body parts to keep Ruth “Weekend at Bader’s” Ginsburg alive. But it won’t help.

According to Fox News:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will miss next week’s court sessions and work from home, but her recovery from early-stage lung cancer surgery remains “on track” and no further treatment is needed, the court announced Friday.

“Justice Ginsburg will continue to work from home next week and will participate in the consideration and decision of the cases on the basis of the briefs and the transcripts of oral arguments. Her recovery from surgery is on track,” Supreme Court public information officer Kathy Arberg said in a statement.

“Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required,” she said.

At 85, Ginsburg is the oldest judge on the court.

And while that impresses some, it’s merely another sign that Ginsburg’s time is almost up. And when I say “time is up”, I don’t just mean as a judge.

Oliver Wendell Holmes stayed on the court until he was 91. But he hadn’t survived colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, and lung cancer, as Ginsburg has. In order to break Holmes’ record, Ginsburg will have to survive both Trump administrations.

Truth be told, Ginsburg should do the right thing and retire now. For the Leftists reading this, you wanted this retirement over two years ago, during the era of Obama, so don’t front.

In 2013, she told the New York Times, she would remain on the court, “As long as I can do the job full steam, and that, at my age, is not predictable.”

A few year later in 2016, Ginsburg told NPR she would “retire when it’s time. And when is it time? When I can’t do the job full steam.”

Well that time has come. Because Ginsburg lost steam a few years back. It’s only by the grace of God that Ginsburg pushed the envelope allowing Trump to replace her and not Obama.

Sebastian Gorka tweeted about rumors of RBG’s retirement:

Multiple sources tonight tell me this woman is not even in DC, but in New York and preparing to step down from the Supreme Court.

And you ready for what will ensue?

The White House was right to prepare to replace Ginsburg when word of her surgery came in December.

Politico chimed in on this eventuality as well.

The White House is reaching out to political allies and conservative activist groups to prepare for an ailing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s possible death or departure from the Supreme Court — an event that would trigger the second bitter confirmation battle of President Donald Trump’s tenure.

The outreach began after Ginsburg, 85, on Monday missed oral arguments at the court for the first time in her 25 years on the bench.

I wrote that Ginsburg was done when I learned of her third cancer surgery. They found the cancer after she broke 3 ribs:

I’m not being flippant; and unlike Leftists wish Ginsburg no ill will. But I’d be lying if I said I don’t want her off the SCOTUS.

Hell to the yeah, I hope this injury causes her to rethink “lifelong” as a SCOTUS Justice. Then I hope she decides what’s left of her life is too short. By now she must realize she aging in dog years.

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.

The human body isn’t made to last more than 80 years. Some lucky few get the honor, and even fewer do so with any form of good health.

Ginsburg would be crazy to want to stay on the court after having survived three cancer scares. If she’s smart, she will spend whatever time she has left living life to the fullest.
