Skip to comments.Justice Ginsburg: We Need An All-Female Supreme Court
Posted on 11/26/2012 8:30:05 AM PST by chessplayer
(CNSNews.com) Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says there will be enough women on the Supreme Court when all nine justices are female.
So now the perception is yes women are here to stay. And when Im sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]? And I say when there are nine, people are shocked. But thered been nine men, and nobodys ever raised a question about that, she said.
Ruth and I don’t see eye to eye on much, but I believe her point is that there is no token quota that should determine how many women sit on the bench at one time.
I’d agree with her on that for various demographics.
Obama put two so called females(LOL) on the court
This jerk Ginsberg has wasted enough time on the Supreme Court - get her out NOW!
And that shows the damaged mind and lack of logic of RBG.
When there were 9 men on the SCOTUS, women were explicitly excluded. Is she advocating explicitly excluding men? RBG’s idea of equality is inequality?
This old hag can't live forever. She's got one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel.
Saying that 9 is enough isn’t quite the same as saying no token quota should determine it. In fact, it’s the opposite. She not only has a quota, the quota is zero men. What a sexist she is.

“This jerk Ginsberg has wasted enough time on the Supreme Court - get her out NOW!”
be careful what you wish for she may be a loon but imagine Hillary Clinton on the court as her replacement..
Ain’t she cute with her coy remark? Leftists like her are a censorious and have tunnel vision. To her it’s about a POLITICAL agenda. That’s not what the Supreme Court is intended to be. It’s supposed to be a panel of Constitutional experts who don’t bring personal polical agendas to their decisions. Kagan and Sotomayer are political agenda hacks through and through and are not at all qualified to be sitting on that once prestigious panel. I’m sure there are qualified women for the Supreme Court, but the last two picks, Kagan and Sotomayer are not among them.
Crazy old broad needs to move on, Problem is Obama is looking at someone worse to take her place.
Another leftist who cares nothing about meritocracy. It’s all about “identity”, preferably those who share hers.
“... But thered been nine men, and nobodys ever raised a question about that,
Lots of people DID raise questions about an all male supreme court... and that’s the only reason why IDIOTS LIKE GINSBURG stood a chance to be included in the first place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey Ginsberg! How’s that Egyptian constitution working out for you?
No we need her to stay until bammer is out of office or he will appoint some 30 year old ultra left liberal who will live for 60 more years.....
I’m all for equal opportunity, but I’m more for the best qualified people for the job (woman or man). Ever have to deal with a government agency? Where do they get some of these people???
Right before WWII, the US needed a major leap forward in cryptography (code breakers for people in Rio Lindo, ala Rush). The Government agencies and military couldn’t go to the American Cryptography Society, or the universities - they had to pick from the pool of people who had passed the civil service exam first. We were waaaay behind every other nation in code breaking in 1940.
Obama might need an all-gay supereme court.
