    Heart stent for Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg, 81

    I apologize if someone already has started a thread on this......I wish Ginsburg no harm but it would be a huge boost for the GOP if she had to step down...

    A heart stent is minor and far less than a bypass. Ginsburg could live to 110.

    A stent does not extend or shorten life.

    RBG has survived colon and pancreatic cancer. she's one tough lady. I don't have much use for many of her opinions or votes but I respect her toughness and her intellect. BTW her best friend in the world-other than husband (I assume) is Justice Scalia.

    If she retires or dies with Obama as president she'll just be replaced by a liberal judge.

    It's a shame how political and biased the SCOTUS is. When the highest court of the land goes by politics and ideology over the word of law that is a major problem.

    Regardless though, I wish her a speedy recovery.

    Won't happen my friend. Obama could never get a liberal confirmed through a Republican Senate.

    I think what you mean to say is that Obama cannot get AS LIBERAL a justice as he wants through a GOP senate.

    I hope Justice Ginsburg has a speedy recovery. She doesn't seem to want to resign any time soon, but that's all right. At least her opinions are usually well reasoned and deserve respect, unlike Sonia "The Wise Latina" Sotomayor, who is an embarrassment to the Court. I doubt she will ever be be impeached, but the idea should be kept alive. I don't buy the argument that nothing like the impeachment of Justice Chase can ever happen again. Why the hell not? I think the threat of impeachment, for repeatedly making clearly unreasonable interpretations of the Constitution, should always be kept the back of every justice's mind.

    If any Supreme Court justice does retire while this damned liar of a President is still taking up space in the White House, I hope the Republicans who will dominate the new Senate will refuse to confirm any nomination he makes to the Court that they do not agree with. Democrats are in no position to complain about being on the receiving end of that kind of rough tactics. They thought is was fair enough to sabotage Robert Bork, who was eminently qualified and one of the most distinguished nominees to the Court in the last century. And they thought it was fair enough to use vile personal attacks to try to keep Clarence Thomas off the Court, even though he has proven to be one of the sharpest legal minds --if not the sharpest--on it.
