Skip to comments.Prof to Justices Ginsburg & Breyer: Retire Now Before You Drop Dead During Republican Administration
Posted on 04/28/2011 9:59:45 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Didn't Harvard Law Professor Randall Kennedy get the word? Barack Obama's re-election is all but guaranteed if you believe the liberal mainstream media. Just today the CNBC head of news reported the belief that Obama's re-election would be guaranteed by the actions of the Fed. So why the concern about the health of Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer? Could it be that Randall doesn't quite (GASP!) believe in the political invincibility of the Lightworker?
Apparently such "heretical" thoughts must have occurred to Professor Kennedy judging by his New Republic article in which he urges the two aging justices to retire now because of the inference that they could die during a Republican administration elected next year and be replaced by (EEK!) conservatives. Of course, Randall tries, not too successfully, to be delicate in his suggestion:
Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer should soon retire. That would be the responsible thing for them to do. Both have served with distinction on the Supreme Court for a substantial period of time; Ginsburg for almost 18 years, Breyer for 17. Both are unlikely to be able to outlast a two-term Republican presidential administration, should one supersede the Obama administration following the 2012 election. What’s more, both are, well, old: Ginsburg is now 78, the senior sitting justice. Breyer is 72.

Ginsberg will look like Mother Bates in her wheelchair before she gives up that spot.
They’ll have to pry the robe from her cold dead America-hating fingers.
There should be a mandatory retirement age for federal judges of 70 years. There are so many senile judges hanging on by their finger nails that it isn’t even funny. Republicans should push for a constitutional amendment on this.
sigh....apparently none of the active pundits out there can remember Jimmy Carter either....
Nice imagery there....and chillingly accurate.

Kind of like William O Douglas. (snark)
Really? Scalia is 75.
Why would Scalia want to retire while Obama can still pick his replacement?
she already looks like Mother Bates
Attention Gang of 16 stand by, your services to the regime may be required again shortly.
I keep praying they can both hang on until after Jan 20th 2013. Then let the Lord take them both.
