    As I was reading your post, I thought the Dan Mullen quote under it was a Ginsburg quote. I only got past "I make the rules" before I noticed it was a Dan Mullen quote. Up to that point I thought she seemed pretty feisty for her age!

    She will be replaced by a woman, and the Dems will try to destroy here like they always do to Pub nominees for the SCOTUS.

    Going to be more difficult to play the “11th hour, 30-year-old, almost sexual assault with no details or corroboration” card. But I’m sure they’ll come up with something creative.

    If we start a pool on what the smear tactic will be, put me down for “impossible to prove or disprove racial incident.” Something like, “I once heard her talking on the phone when she was an intern at our law firm, and she used a VERY pejorative term for Eskimos. I didn’t say anything about it for approximately 15 years, but I’m 100% sure about what I heard, and I remember it like it was yesterday. In fact, I was so traumatized by the event that I was unable to watch Northern Exposure when it was the best show on TV ... When was this? ... Definitely between January 1985 and December 1993 ... What time of day? ... Definitely between 7:30AM and 4:30PM ... No idea who she was talking to ... No other contextual details to the conversation ... No one else was around to hear it ... But believe me anyway.”

    What a load of crap. The only two GOP nominees who weren't confirmed in the last 40 years were Robert Bork (executed Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre) and Harriet Meiers (who fumbled basic questions of Constitutional law).

    Just because the appointee made the SCOTUS doesn’t mean the Democrats didn’t try to destroy him.

    Signed,
    Clarence Thomas

    Just because men deny sexually harassing and assaulting women doesn't mean the men didn't do it

    Signed,

    Ginsberg retires due to health, Thomas retires just because, and Trump gets 4 young justices on the court. And all in 4 years! I would call that a legacy to believe in.

    As long as you're not a woman, minority, LGBTQ, Muslim, immigrant, refugee, blue state resident or anyone who cares about the environment.

    How many Dems have been abused by the Pubs during their nomination process? ZERO.

    So, you agree that the Dems attempted to destroy Clarence Thomas. Thank you.

    If what Anita Hill said was true then he should have been denied a seat. How many women do you know who’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted?

    You’ve forgotten Merrick Garland was denied a confirmation hearing while Boofy Brett was slammed in before the midterms?
