This week’s Sparky: the glorious RBG

    Well said talking rodent !

  2. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    It’s a horrendous loss for the United States and of course, for the Court. But it was expected, sooner or later. Normally, I would be consistent: in favour of a vote for Garland then and a vote for Trump’s nominee now but no way in hell now.

    Ginsburg’s death is potentially the ultimate Democratic catalyst — get close to 100% of those who absolutely loathe Trump to vote and Democrats win, perhaps across the board. Sit at home and drink beer and Trump will send each of you a Thank You Card.

    We all know servant McConnell’s game plan. So, let’s have at it and resolve to change presidents in the voting booth after Trump gets his nominee. Make no mistake, Mitch will get him his nominee. Then it will be up to voters to render judgment on McConnell, Senate and House Republicans and Trump himself. The Vote is the ultimate weapon. Use it.

  3. Gilbert says:

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a darling of the left. Criticizing Donald Trump publicly prior to the 2016 election was highly unusual and inappropriate. If she wanted a liberal to replace her, she could have resigned when Barack Obama was in office. My guess is she never expected Hillary Clinton to lose.

    • The Doctor says:

      While I vehemently oppose Trump, I agree with you on this — her comments about Trump were inappropriate for a judge to make.

      • Ronald O'Dowd says:

        I would imagine that Roberts took her to the woodshed. As a lawyer, I certainly can’t defend her choice. But that doesn’t mean she wasn’t right on target because she sure was.

    • Max says:

      Donald Trump is “highly unusual and inappropriate”. Full stop. But hey, focus on the one comment she made (out of hundred of positive and constructive contributions) that she shortly after retracted publicly.
      But like squirrels, niaive, self-important political observers fall for the “what-aboutisms” as we lurch from one low blow to the next that is right around the corner. Trumptards love the “RBG-SCOTUS” controversy as it takes the squirrels away from Russian Bounties, Troops and Vets as Suckers and Losers, Inject Bleach and Use Sunlight, 200,000 DEAD, pivoting from Anyone Can Get a Test to Anyone Can Get a Vaccine (veey soon), Mexico will pay for the Wall, I have a Plan to replace Obamacare, RACISM Rampant……. When you’re a star, they let you do it.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:


      Even Trump thought Hillary would win. He repeatedly said the fix was in for Clinton.

  4. the real Sean says:

    An out of control partisan firestorm…. to replace someone who hasn’t even had a funeral yet. Both sides promising specific, unprecedented acts of retribution if the other side gets their way…. This is the most fitting way to close out 2020 and the worst presidential race of all time.
