This is breaking news with ramifications that could change the face of the supreme court.

Judge Barrett is the most likely replacement.

Amy Barrett?

Well by the argument of the republicans and Old McC; Ginsburg's seat has to go to a liberal as Scalia's had to go to a conservative.

They likely could have blocked Kavanuagh, and now with Ginsburg's replacement it will be needed more than ever.

It is an election year, the republicans need to wait until the election is over, just like Obama could not appoint his judge. That of course assumes she dies/

Ginsburg has been through hell and back, I think any of the people I've seen quietly presuming that this is her end are both dead wrong and way too overly partisan in the way they view these sorts of situations. I'd need a third hand to count on my fingers the number of times I've seen headlines that read "Ginsburg sick" or "Ginsburg battling (X) in hospital."

Regardless, hope she makes a swift recovery, she's a brilliant jurist and generally a fairly solid SCOTUS justice.

It was an emotional retaliation for Garland. It was doomed to fail and it cost them their only means to keep any semblance of balance.

I'm hoping for coronavirus, at this point some conservatives are the only thing that'll save the US. But then again I've no hope that anything will save this world from the inevitable collapse of society brought on by the radical communists who have infiltrated certain facets of society and are bringing it down. And yes I really do believe this.
