One of the strongest voices for women's rights and a powerhouse in a small package, on the Supreme Court has scumbed to cancer.  She died Friday at her home in Washington.

https://www.startribune.com/supreme-court-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg-dies-at-87/572457952/

Her death and the vacancy it leaves on the Supreme Court will now add more fire to an already hot presidential campaign. Will Trump try to make an appointment and have it ratified by the Republicans in the Senate. Or, will he take the high road and leave the seat open until after the election, only six weeks away.

May this great woman rest in peace. This mess is no longer her problem. Judges are a special breed and Ms.Ginsburg was best in showing up and doing the job as it should be done.

I’m a bit embarrassed my first thoughts were selfishly based on my political beliefs and not for her family.

I saw this just before bed, but it was bothering me enough I woke in the night and read on my iPad.  I don’t know why I was surprised at how gleeful Bitch McConnell and crowd were at this sad news.  I’m sure they are not bothered by their hypocrisy at already planning to ram through a nominee.

Here’s my suggestion:

Merrick Garland or whoever President Joe Biden picks.

The best Supreme Court Justice in American history will not be replaced by the worst president in American history.

The stories of RGB's death this morning make me even sadder. There's so much talk about Trump making an appointment and ramrodding it through the Senate before the election.

What's missing is the story of this remarkable woman's life and her service to this country from her seat on the bench of the countries highest court.  Not to mention her career prior to her appointment to the Supreme Court.

The movie "On The Basis of Sex" documents her early fights for women's rights. A fight she continued on with, including her time as a justice on the Supreme Court.

Let us give thanks to this wonderful woman for her service to our country.

That shipped has already sailed. Trump had already prepared two lists of potential nominees, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced, before Justice Ginsberg's body was even cold, that the Senate will vote on Trump's nomination.

The irony, of course, is that when President Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace the recently deceased Antonin Scalia on March 16, 2016, McConnell proclaimed that it was too close to the upcoming election. As McConnell put it at the time:

"The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president."

That was almost none months before the 2016 presidential election. Yesterday, barely six weeks before the 2020 presidential election, McConnell seems to have forgotten what he said four years ago, believing that "the American people" should not "have a choice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice."

The challenge is simply this: McConnell's gross hypocrisy, and his blatantly politicizing the Supreme Court nomination and approval process, are irrelevant. Trump has a list of vetted nominees, he will very likely announce one shortly, and the GOP holds the majority in both the Senate Judiciary Committee and the full Senate. On top of that, he has more than three months to fulfill this Constitutional process, since the new Senate doesn't sit until January 3, 2021, and the GOP will retain its majorities until that time.

Welcome to politics.  No one should be shocked at the games they (our duly elected officials) play.

   We all agree with JoE Biden, and his statement that the Voter should choose the President, then the President should choose the nominee, and the Senate should decide, if the nominee becomes the Justice.

   The Voters chose President Trump to be our President. President Trump will be in office until at least January 20, 2021, and there is plenty of time for his Nominee to be vetted in the Senate.

   Tomorow will be September 20, 2020, with a minimum of 4 months remaining in the current Presidential term. I believe JoE Biden noted it can take from 59 days to 79 days for the Senate to decide on a nominee, well within the 4 remaining months, in this term.

This all true, but what of fairness? Obama had eight months left in his term when he nominated Merrick Garland, only to have his nomination blocked by the Republican senate. Are we looking forward to a future where we just don’t replace Supreme Court justices if the president and the senate are opposite parties?
