Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized

Source: New York Times

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Friday night after experiencing chills and fever earlier in the day, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said on Saturday.

Justice Ginsburg was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington before being transferred to Johns Hopkins for further evaluation and treatment of any possible infection, the spokeswoman, Kathleen Arberg, said in a statement.

Justice Ginsburg’s symptoms abated after treatment with intravenous antibiotics and fluids, Ms. Arberg said, adding the justice expected to be released from the hospital as early as Sunday morning.

Justice Ginsburg, 86, has had a series of health scares lately, including surgery for lung cancer and radiation treatment for pancreatic cancer in the last year. Over the years, Justice Ginsburg has also had surgery for early-stage pancreatic cancer in 2009 and treatment for colon cancer in 1999.

that the next few budgets will include significant cuts to spending in deep red states.

28. The election's less than a year a way.

But people misquote what was said--or, rather, they fail to reproduce the entire quote.

We heard the bit about not considering/confirming a SCOTUS nominee in the year before an election. What was omitted widely (by the NYT and a lot of others) was the condition he imposed on that--when the Senate and president are from different parties. Since it's material to the meaning of the proposition it has to be part of the quote--to omit it is to change the meaning. (Not quite as bad as saying, "I do ... support marriage equality," where the "..." replaces "not", but still it alters the material meaning of the sentence. Defending the NYT and others is that at the time the contingency was irrelevant--it was true and therefore omissible.)

The (R) also cited some historical bit about that having held true since some time in the late 1800s. (Whether this is deliberate principle or mere circumstance I'll leave for those concerned about such matters to decide, but I suspect it's convenient "circumstance." I'm also not sure it's anything more than him trying to play CYA.)

9. I worry.

Unfortunately, losing her would help make Donald Trump "tired of all the winning". I wouldn't be able to bear the WH high fives.

Hang in there and get well soon.

11. They would be able to do virtually anything and get away with it judicially.

For decades too most likely.

A depressing thought at a time when we are suppose to be thankful.

36. McConnell is licking his chops

thinking that this could be a record-breaking speedy replacement. Susan Collins is fretting over how long to fret before voting for the right-wing religious replacement.

Trump, as usual, thinks about impeachment and golf.

14. More scared about Midwest brothers

Polls from Wisconsin is disheartening post-impeachment. What is the story with Michigan and Wisconsin. Are people there so hoodwinked by the cult figure they cannot think straight?

Also heard Joe Manchen and Arizona's Sinema are against impeachment. If Democrats do not vote for impeachment, we are screwed. Hope our friends from those states pressure them.

25. This right here is why people better vote next November.

There's no time for the petty bullshit and purity contest.

This isn't time for a protest vote or to be plain old stupid.

It's going to be blue, no matter who for me...

32. I am so worried about her.

For her own sake, I wonder if she should retire. I know it would be devastating for the U.S., but she's done so much already, and I'd rather have her alive to enjoy her family in the time she has left. This is a terrible situation. I will absolutely support any decision she makes.

This person has given her all. She should retire.

We'll figure out how to rebalance the court, later.
