Politico Chief Political Columnist Asks if You’d Give Days Off Your Life for Ginsburg

Politico Chief Political Columnist Asks if You’d Give Days Off Your Life for Ginsburg

I have no words…

On Monday I blogged that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg missed oral arguments for the first time in her tenure because she’s recovering from surgery. Doctors removed cancerous nodules off her lung.

I wrote that people joked about giving her their limbs and organs, but also wouldn’t be surprised if people actually did this.

Say no more! Politico Chief Political Columnist Roger Simon asked Twitter today if anyone would “subtract one day off your life and add it to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life for one extra day of good health.”

Ginsburg also missed oral arguments today. Chief Justice John Roberts said again that she “will participate in the decisions using transcripts of the arguments and court briefs.”

The responses caused me to laugh a little too hard. I looked through those who answered and about 99% mocked Simon over the tweet.

You know what would be SO GREAT? We stop relying on the Supreme Court so much and giving them power.

Secondly, the Supreme Court interprets the Constitution. The Constitution is not conservative or liberal. Stop politicizing the Supreme Court and the Constitution. I’ve written before that it’s not hard to interpret the Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights.

I’d tell people to can it, but I find it hilarious. Show off your crazy!

i won’t donate a day of my life to extend hers, but i would take a day off to attend her funeral…


I will give her one day, in exchange for her immediate retirement/resignation.

This kind of article is beneath LI to even publish. Politico is beneath LI in every respect and to bring up such impossible nonsense is childish!

RBG is the oldest SCOTUS Justice. The former ACLU lawyer has absolutely ZERO compassion for the lives growing in their mother’s womb. She supports Planned Parenthood, and the abysmal SCOTUS decision to grant abortion on request. Let her live out the rest of her days and then find another conservative judge to elevate to SCOTUS.

If you could take off one day of your life and add it as an extra day onto Trump’s 8 year presidency, would you?


I’ve said for years that Liberals don’t do respect. This is what they do instead, an over-the-top adulation.

Even that is purely functional. If she voted tomorrow against (to pick something not at all at random) Planned Parenthood, they would suddenly start calling her names, claiming she had outlived her usefulness, demanding that she die so that someone “better” could take her place.

It makes me so tired watching their antics.

Vapid old woman is a tedious bore. Needle in paw, git’r’gone.

    To make this truly hilarious the same question needs to be asked about Nancy Pelosi. ROFL Wonder how many would donate to her cremation instead of an extended life span?

No. She should take days off her life for me.

Irv – Justice Kennedy is a case in point. From hero for writing the Obergefel opinion to goat for retiring during Trump’s tenure.

Even Ruth Buzzy herself has some of them in a snit for not retiring during Obama’s time in office.

RBG assumes room temperature in 3…2…1…

Bring on another Constitutionalist to replace her!

Going to need proof of life as it is. Not “video,” not a robotic computer generated voice, not a flurry of law clerks insisting they are producing her personal work. I demand that she be seen in person by truly independent jurists to see her doing her job. If she can’t comply with that, she needs to resign. You better believe if Clarence Thomas were invisible to the public but producing purist opinions, the left would go absolutely insane (well, more insane), making every demand I’ve listed.

    Milhouse in reply to CKYoung. | January 8, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    You contradict yourself. If she resigns, that will prove she’s alive and therefore doesn’t need to resign. If Trump truly suspected she was already dead, he could send the senate a nomination for her replacement and challenge those who complained to produce proof that there is no vacancy.

      CKYoung in reply to Milhouse. | January 8, 2019 at 1:16 pm

      If her work product can not be independently proven to he hers, the flurry of law clerks need to bring forth her resignation. If it can be absolutely proven that she is alive, cognizant and producing her own work, well then, carry on. After the Judge Kavenaugh nomination, I really do believe the left capable of (the attempt at) hiding her death for as long as possible. I’m curious about your opinion on the question: If no one ever actually saw Clarence Thomas again, but he still served as a full member of the court, do you think the left would accept that?

85? Wow, that’s already a long time to be such a sourpuss.

She reminds me of Albrecht von Wallenstein, one of the guys who made the Thirty Years’ War such a memorable event. He was never seen to smile, either.

This was an episode on The Twilight Zone…..which is where RBG lives.

Okay, I’ll give her the day,
– I bought that boat
– I married my first wife
– I failed that drug test and lost my dream job
– my [mom/dad; spouse; best friend; child; favorite dog] died
– I learned I had an incurable medical condition
– my child lost respect for me because he/she found out I lied

She can have those days.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | January 8, 2019 at 12:37 pm

Dude needs to qualify his fantasy. I mean, what good does it to to give one day of your life to extend RBG’s life by a day, if she is too sick to show up to work?

The Friendly Grizzly | January 8, 2019 at 12:47 pm

I have a crazy one I’m considering starting. I want to own and play a top- grade piano before I die. Would any of you donate to a Go Fund Me collection to make my dream come true? Bösendorfer for Bear?

Just a thought…

The concept isn’t ridiculous. People do offer God such bargains, and — at least according to Jewish teaching — every once in a while He accepts them. The Zohar (p 168) tells us that David’s 70 years of life was made up entirely of donations from Adam, Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph. Much closer to modern times, Devorah Leah, the daughter of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi, gave her life in exchange for her father’s. So the concept isn’t ridiculous; what’s ridiculous is doing this for someone like Ginsburg.

    But there is always a day of reckoning. She gets those extra days, but then while using them to drive around with another liberal justice, she wrecks the car and now DJT gets to fill two slots. Be very very careful what you ask for as you just might get it.

    C. Lashown in reply to Milhouse. | January 9, 2019 at 11:37 am

    What the Left needs is NOT more life for RBG, but rather a great taxidermist. Skin her out and drap the hide over a styrafoam mold, wrinkles and all. A little AI magic, with lever’s and pully’s and America can sit at the feet of The Wizard’s daughter. Then just transport Pelosi into a small dog and the perfect fantasy is born.

I wouldn’t be too concerned about Ginsberg passing away any time too soon. The left has her set up so that her ghost can do her deliberations for as long as they would like.

Just see when the next time someone reputable ACTUALLY sees the lady alive and kicking and not mummified.

Since I’m not absolutely, beyond any shadow of a doubt, guaranteed another day of life, hell no, but I’ll happily share my cold with her!

    MajorWood in reply to joscefi. | January 8, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    You got one of those colds too. I found it funny that they say to not donate blood when not feeling well. Trust me, if I had donated a unit of O-neg today, I’d be dead right now. Running on empty.

nope. rather I would deduct days from my life to take hers.
so what.

Curious legal question for all of you: If an person has a case go before a panel of jurist and one of the panel is not present for oral arguments but still renders a decision, might that be grounds for an appeal?

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to WillS68. | January 8, 2019 at 4:13 pm

    It’s a good question, and I also apologize for the down-tick.

    LI site admins: this is long overdue for a fix. Pleeeease?

    Gremlin1974 in reply to WillS68. | January 8, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    Maybe if you were talking about an Appellate Court, but generally there is no way to “appeal” a decision from SCOTUS.

amatuerwrangler | January 8, 2019 at 2:21 pm

As to her “participating” based on her reading of briefs and transcripts: If I recall correctly Justice Gorsuch was not allowed to participate in some decisions when he was first seated because he had not participated/heard the oral arguments. Are these briefs and transcripts referred to relating to RBG’s situation something new? Why is it that Gorsuch could not read all the transcripts and briefs and “participate”. [By participating I am assuming they mean cast a vote or write a decision for consideration.]

This is a serious question.

    Was Gorsuch actually a Supreme Court Justice at the time of the oral arguments he missed? If not then that could be the difference. It wasn’t just that he missed the oral arguments but that he wasn’t a Supreme Court Justice at the time of the oral arguments. A very technical distinction I admit, but certainly the kind of hair splitting for which Roberts is well known. Could be a matter of tradition from past court practices in these situations as well.

    amatuerwrangler in reply to amatuerwrangler. | January 9, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    Thank you… I was thinking something along that line. I do not know what the timing was (argument vs confirmation) I just recalled a report of a decision where he did not participate and his not hearing the oral argument was given as the reason.

    [I am puzzled as to how a question such as mine could garner a down vote… but long ago I learned the folly of expecting wide-ranging logical behavior from people.] 🙂

It boggles my mind that someone pays this fool/tool to write such tripe.

While several people have offered Justice Ginsberg their lungs, producer Michael Moore has offered a pair of chins.

Cloning and Taxidermy TO THE RESCUE

A new take on cap and trade?

I have words: Cold. Calculating. Pretentious.

An abortion rite? At the twilight fringe? Planned for the Ginsburg.

“No her life has no more value than any other life.”

This is the only real answer to that question.

What kind of booze are they drinking over there at Politico? OR, are they just so full of their own ‘virtue’ they’ve abandoned common sense?

I am not going to live one day longer, or one day less, than the Good Lords wants me to, and neither will she.

The wicked witch is melting.
