    What a loss. She won't be forgotten. Rest in peace, RBG.

    I admired her very much.

    The really interesting thing now will be watching those of you who were adamant that McConnell should allow confirmation hearings 4 years ago reverse course and become even more adamant that he shouldn't. Politics may be a nasty business but it's endlessly entertaining.
    Entertaining is not the word I would use. Lying and duplicity is more like it for this administration.

    You obviously are a misogynist! RBG was/is my hero. You were not a woman in the 70's or thereafter and the laws were such that we were chattel. She vastly helped women and minorities get equal rights. Go watch the documentary RBG. You obviously do not know of what you speak.

    As far as who gets energized more by Trump violating imaginary rules, I think itís pretty much a wash. The rigidly partisan made up their minds in 2016. The non-partisans seem more likely to vote based on other issues than a judicial nominee.

    I think we can look forward to another Kavanaugh-style circus.
    Which was absolutely disgusting.... another abuser.

    That is the moral character of this administration.

    If the women in my life were prone to applying labels to everyone, I don't think they'd plant that one on me. but they probably don't know me as well as you do. I'll overlook the insult and just assume that you'd rather see more activism on the Supreme Court. Is that right?

    Activism isn't the word I would use. Fair, unprejudiced, unbiased are words I would describe a person that should be on the supreme court.

    BTW .... RBG is on tonight on CNN 10pm Eastern.

    I can see why she was threatening to some men because she was brilliant. It’s a huge loss for the country.

    It's sad to lose a major player in the fight for equal rights for women, especially at a time when we have two gropers running for president, one of whom was instrumental in dismissing and humiliating Anita Hill during a Supreme Court nominee hearing.
