Amy Barrett — Immediately, If Not Sooner

SCOTT MCKAY

American Spectator

9/19/20

EXCERPT:

When Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday evening, she did so with a message for posterity which, for all the history that Ginsburg might have made as a woman on the Supreme Court, was pristine in its self-description of her time on the Court.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” she said.

The arrogance of that was par for Ginsburg’s course.

Yes, yes, Ruth Bader Ginsburg lived an interesting life, and yes, yes, she was an accomplished woman. Those things are beside the point. It is neither ghoulish nor inappropriate to look to the future of the United States Supreme Court upon her death rather than pay tribute to the life she lived. After all, that life was for all practical purposes long since over months ago, when Ginsburg chose to spend her time on death’s door occupying space on the Supreme Court in an effort to outlast President Trump. And Ginsburg practically begged us to engage in nominatorial exegesis upon her death with the unfortunate quote referenced above.

That her gambit failed, despite practically every responsible pundit and political voice in the country either whispering or shouting the lack of wisdom involved in Ginsburg persisting on the court long after she should have recognized her failing health and retired, is not the fault or responsibility of President Trump.

She was 87 years old, for crying out loud. Were Trump to be re-elected, did she honestly expect to linger on the Supreme Court until she was 91? Or 92? In her failing health?

The vanity of Ginsburg’s attempt to hold the seat for the Left, regardless of the Supreme Court balance that entails, did not reflect well on Ginsburg. It was an affront to American democracy, not something to be given credit for.

She was advised to retire years ago, when Barack Obama could have appointed her replacement. She gambled on Hillary Clinton and she lost.

Remember this is NOT RBG's seat. She died, she's worm food, she's room temperature. She's gone the way to Davy Jone's locker. So it's not her seat, they are now filling a vacancy that was left behind in accordance with the Constitution. Her family don't have a say in it nor does the decedent.

I have to admit, it was a most welcome, if not one day tardy, birthday gift...

It boggles the mind that the regressive pedoBiden supporters think that the feckless censored owned that seat. 

Whomever the President wanted should have been named already, stop pussy footing around and do it already.

Once leftists get their hands on something it belongs to them forever.  When Scott Brown ran for senate the left's argument against him was you can't put a Republican in Ted Kennedy's seat.  Brown replied with with a rallying cry:

Its not Ted Kennedy's seat.  It is the peoples seat.

Shortly after the election he bumped into Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver and their guest at a restaurant in DC.  Shriver told her guests that Brown was the man who took over uncle Teddy's seat in the Senate.  Schwarzenegger replied to her comment that it was not uncle Teddy's seat. It belonged to the people.

Yep, they believe they have marked it, I would entirely disinfect that seat and office once I got there.

Was that the seat he vacated beside Mary Jo? 🤔

I remember seeing articles when Brown was sworn in that the seat in the Senate got unbolted, moved across the aisle to the republican side of the Senate.  So there is a physical seat.
