We were lucky to have Ruth Bader Ginsberg as long as we did. What an amazing legal mind and I am grateful she used it to try and make the world better.
I wish we lived in a country with a government that would allow us to just take some time to be sad, and mourn her passing – instead we’ve been instantly thrown into a fight over her replacement, because we all know this administration wants to install someone who is all about hurting people. Because the cruelty is the point.
John Dean is 100% right – if McConnell insists on pushing this through – we pack the damn courts. I’ve already put in calls and messages to my Senators this morning.
.@JoeBiden must announce that if the GOP rushes to pack the Court, the Dems will expand the SCOTUS to 11 justices, and expand the lower federal courts by 70 to 100 new judgeships, which have long been needed. In short, he will depoliticize the federal judiciary!— John W. Dean (@JohnWDean) September 19, 2020
But, all is not lost. The next RBG is out there. Actually, I am sure there are several of them – from seasoned legal pros to first year law students – her legacy will live on in their work.
