Did you hear? Ruth Bader Ginsburg proudly declared that she will skip President Trump’s State of the Union Address.
Well that’s a damn shame.
I had “ten minutes and sixteen seconds” in the How Long Before Ginsburg Nods Off? pool.
That’ll teach me to waste my money gambling. I guess I can kiss that twenty bucks goodbye.
Since President Trump was inaugurated, Ginsburg has been going out of her way to signal in no uncertain terms that she isn’t planning on retiring any time soon. In fact, she’s already started hiring clerks for the 2020 SCOTUS term. Hope springs eternal in the ancient old biddy.
She plans to outlast the Republican Administration so she can be replaced by somebody just as indifferent to our Constitution as she is.
And something tells me Ruthie skipping the SOTU has nothing to do with making a statement against President Trump.
If I had to guess, I’d say Ginsburg’s absence is more about optics than ResistanceLOL.
After all, when you want everyone to believe you still have a sharp mind, the last thing you want is more pictures of your comatose, drooling, semi-animated corpse zipping around the Internet.
So Tuesday night, Ginsburg will do her sleeping at home – curled up in a blanket snoozing away while episodes of Golden Girls play in the background.
Somehow I think President Trump will survive her absence.
