    Ruth Ginsberg fell and broke 3 ribs and is in the hospital. Could trump get a 3rd SCOTUS appointee?

    It’s poor form to wish for someone’s death so I’ll just keep an eye out for an early Christmas present in the form of freedom and liberty.

    You really think the house, now controlled by the Dems, will let Trump appoint another Justice should she retire or pass???

    How can they stop it? It’s a Senate confirmation position ... Trump nominates then the Senate Judiciary Committee votes 11-10 to send it to the Senate and the Majority Leader schedules it floor floor discussion and vote ... were it comes out 50 something to 40 something confirmed.

    BUT there has to be one key thing first ... Ginsburg has to pass or retire which I’ll bet she’s got a deal with the devil to make it until the next administration.

    This is great news, it will really drive the snow flakes over the edge. The Dems might have the house, but Trump still has control of the Senate.

    If they can get her on a ventilator and heart pump she could be around for another 20 years.

    Are you suggesting that Ginsberg is a Dark Souls player? I could almost like her. :eek:

    Leftists on social media are offering to donate her their ribs and any possible organ she made need to continue. Seriously

    I can surely see someone keeping her on a ventilator while even being brain dead to stop Trump from getting the pick.

    I am not a particularly religious man, but I fear God won't take her. And her liver is likely to be too hard to burn so hell is out. We may be stuck with her for a long while.

    She has some serious medical issues.
    Cancer x2, she's broken ribs before a few years back.
    I don't wish her I'll will, but I do wish she would retire. On a practical level it looks like she should.
    The Dems want to prop her up like Weekend at Bernie's

    Her job isn’t that stressful or seems to require much effort so she should be fine ...

    If you drank as much wine as she does you'd sleep too. Maybe the R's should look into Impeaching her. There is enough evidence she clearly cannot perform her duties.

    Okay, you got a point ... she even showed up for one of Odumba’s State of the Unions “feeling light headed” but that was only after Kennedy brought that good wine to dinner ... she says she’s no drunk ... or she just knew the best way to sit thru his crappé.

    Maybe she just didn’t want to go to the Kavanaugh ceremony.

    Pres. Trump said he hopes she serves on the Court for many, many years today before he left for Andrews.

    It is well known that here and Scalia used to enjoy quantities of fine wine together. And I am pretty sure she hasn't let his passing change her habits. Nothing wrong with that of course, but at some quantity of booze and some age it likely hampers you in your duties.

    Trump needs to learn (probably unlikely at his position and his age) to say less in order to say more.
    Really, Trump wants RBG to serve "many, many years". How about we wish RBG good health and a speedy recovery - period.

    I'm losing count, but are the Dems going to control the Senate and advise and consent on judges next week? Just pulled ahead in Montana, Ariz, and trying their best to flip Florida with some shenanigans.

    AZ is sounding like shenanigans too. But they still won't control the Senate I believe. I thought they might be able to get to a tie, but then Pence would be the tie-breaker. And my guess from what I've heard so far is that this could be a long fight.

    51 = starting Republican
    +4 = R flips (FL, IN, MO, ND)
    -2 = D flips (AZ, NV)
    53 = Republican

    Montana flipped back D ... and the D’s are trying to steal Florida ... so it’s 51 if FL goes to Nelson (D) or 52 if Scott (R) survives the Broward County Democrat Thievery.

    Oh yeah ... and the Dems possibly steal the GA Governorship ... it must be nice to manufacture voters and their votes like AZ, FL and GA Dems do.

    MO = Missouri - flipped Republican
    MT = Montana - stayed Democrat

    53

    The last I read, AZ is a LOT further (~400K ballots) from being over than FL.
