Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 07, 2019

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is missing arguments for the first time in more than 25 years as she recuperates from cancer surgery last month, the Supreme Court said. Ginsburg was not on the bench as the court met Monday to hear arguments. It was not clear when she would return to the court, which will hear more cases on Tuesday and Wednesday, and again next week.

On the day she had surgery, Trump tweeted his wishes for Ginsburg's "full and speedy recovery!"

I echo the president's well-wishes.

Let us look at this objectively. This is an octogenarian that just had surgery for lung cancer. I watch my mom die that way and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. But the chances of her surviving the Trump administration is extremely doubtful. Also you don't need reminding that the Republicans control the Senate, who have soul authority for the approval of his nominees. The Democrats shot their rod on the Kavanaugh nomination and will not likely try that again. It seemed to cost them the senate.

It was the most favorable elect/reelect map for the GOP in a generation.

Son, you would do yourself a favor by living in reality for a change instead of just making things up as you go along.

The numbers were awfully lopsided. I think it was 10 Senate Republicans up for re-election and 26 Democrats up for re-election.

Trump is a hateful idiot. That statement is just dripping with irony. And in fact, we know it means exactly the opposite of what it says.

I wouldn't echo a Gawd damn thing this man has ever said except in irony or to teach others what NOT to say or do.

Even if it by some miracle chance probability it turned out later to be correct. Doesn't matter. Just like a broken can be correct twice a day.

However, I do send my own positive energies to this remarkable woman who has stood against hate and repression and inequality from the moment she learned how. We need her more than ever to stand against the hate and fear and the stink of Lies coming from this White House.

I also know it is not enough. we cannot put all our hopes in this one woman.

We are gonna need hundreds or even thousands of her.

AND I THANK EVERYONE OF US WHO HAVE HEARD AND RESPONDED TO THE CALL.

I am sure Ginsberg would just love to retire.

But, she can't.

If you TRULY wished her to be WELL you would be trying to make it so she could.

Nope.

If her husband were still alive, I have no doubt she would have retired in '14 with Obama naming her replacement.

This is now what she loves most in her life. She will likely be on the bench until she passes.

Oh I am sure she "loves" it.

She would have to! And I selfishly hope she stays put until she dies too!

But, it's no longer good for her health.

And I say... "It's not good for her health."

Or is it? You could be right.

It is quite possibly the only thing keeping her alive, too.

so I guess in the end... who are you and I to say what is good for anyone? WE don't even know what is good for ourselves most of the time. (so in my "round about way" I agree with you.. but I will never admit it of course!)

It sounds like the cancer was discovered as a result of x-raying her broken ribs from her fall. Falling down and breaking her ribs may have very well prolonged her life. Kind of ironic.

You liberals only want her alive for selfish partisan reasons. She should have retired when Obama first came into office.

I've said it before and I'll say it again here:
Ginsburg will not stay on the Supreme Court until 2020.

Her courage in her painful life threatening illness should inspire every liberal to hang in there and combat the forces of EVIL as long and as strongly as we can. We are the resistance and they are the enemy trying to take away freedom and our way of life. Thank you Justice Ginsberg!

"They" arent an enemy, they are Americans trying to save their way of life. If you stop trying to "change" everything, to the detriment of others, maybe our world could be less partisan.

Your mindset, Danni, is what's making this political environment like it is.

Stop inferring on me. I never wished her dead. You only want her alive because she is on the court in your favor. The lady needs to retire. She needs to rest. But ideologues like you wont let her.

Read your words stupid.

You liberals only want her alive for selfish partisan reasons.

You clearly want her dead. That's twice now you've implied liberals want her alive.

Not, liberals only want her on the Supreme Court.

You chose the word "alive".

The antithesis being, dead.

Which, is clearly what you prefer.

I'm sure you've fantasized about killing her with your own hands.

"And all the time I thought it was for lying to the grand jury."

"Our impeachment of President Clinton was another example of placing the wrong political emphasis on personal matters. We impeached Clinton for lying to the government. To our surprise the electorate gave us cold comfort. Lying to the government: It's called April 15th. And we accused Clinton of lying about sex, which all men spend their lives doing, starting at 15 bragging about things we haven't done yet, then on to fibbing about things we are doing, and winding up with prevarications about things we no longer can do." - P.J. O'Rourke

Maybe an exorcist.

Logic is clearly not your strong suit, Clownsnack. It's entirely reasonable that Boaz wants her alive for selfish non-partisan reasons. Like her feet.

"I'm sure you've fantasized about killing her with your own hands."

Another logic fail. His hands are busy... .

I'd prefer RBG had the opportunity to retire and enjoy the remainder of her life.

I'm glad she's alive.

Sorry you don't feel that way Boaz.

You should watch it as an adult. It's not a hack/slash like so many horror flicks. It's a pretty serious movie and it's held up very well.

I see. Then in Jesus's name I pray; O Savior! The one begotten Son of God, his Holiness, forgiver of sins; the infant King from Bethlehem; Please bless the Drudge Retort, its good users, and purge this liberal site of the grotesque hatred and willful ignorance of DRIVELIKEJEHU and his fellow satanists.

If that doesn't work I can always try a good old fashioned RCade Exorcism; a plonk.
