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.
Or nine idiots, we already have a few.
Currently there is only one. Six men. And two other/gender non-specific types.
Justice Ginsburg needs a padded cell.
It would be a hoot if somewhere buried in those 2700 pages of Obamacare there was short little paragraph in fine print about euthanizing old worn out supreme court justices, but in their haste to uphold it, they didn’t notice it.
Morsi told his buddy Obama to get rid of the Courts and Congress. It’s easy.
Actually, at least one person raised a question, that would be Ginsberg herself. She actually contradicts herself in the same sentence but I guess that amazing legal mind thinks it is ok.
In reality, numerous people have questioned having 9 men including most likely Ronald Reagan.
curious what religion she ‘practices’.
Given the full court press on women, I think its safe to say that the next democrat candidate for president will be more or less female.
Yeah... We need that like a fish needs a bicycle.
I keep looking for the “semi-satire” tag on these posted Leftist interviews, but, sadly, this is reality.
Someone open up her morphine drip, she is babbling again!
So for Ruth, 100% reverse discrimination is optimal.
What a brain-trust... /s
No Ken. She’s a frail old relic. She could fall and shatter at any moment. Keep her there until we have control. Otherwise you get a young Ginsberg that could be there for another 40 plus years.
I guess we need to go all the way. The progressives will never be satisfied until we have a lesbian Chief Justice with 8 lesbian wives.
Were I to judge female judges by the glittering jewels of colossal ignorance currently infecting the SC benches, I would subscribe to the muslim code of “women are most definitely inferior.”
A more complete set of female mental incompetence cannot be found.
And rest assured that NONE of those ignorant $%^*s would be found anywhere near a university class requiring actual mental talent.
However, I do know that superior females exist. I am married to one.
And she could outthink the idiot-esses on the SC whilst asleep.
Liberals always become what they hate: bigots and haters.
Flame away, but I have a serious question.
It is related to the observation that history has not produced a great female theologian.
Can a female justice be objective and faithful to original intent of the Constitution? Can a female justice make a ruling apart from her very personal perspective and feelings?
FReepmail me to subscribe to or unsubscribe from the SCOTUS ping list.
He might already have one.
What... so she can have a dildo party with her friends? And at taxpayer expense no doubt... no thanks
This is the woman that recommends South Africa’s (communist!) constitution over the US Constitution, and praised Egypt’s “election”. No credibility. She should get out of the SCOTUS and make all the male members a sandwich.
“But thered been nine men, and nobodys ever raised a question about that, she said.”
if it were true that “nobody’s ever raised a question about that”, then there’d still be only men.
there are now women specifically because questions were raised and replied to.
Can I choose the females?
Thanks to Sandra Fluke’s arguments and presentations on why women should be allowed to force ALL TAXPAYERS to pay for their promiscuity coupled with the numerous Statements made by Elected Officials and Hollywood Ninnies regarding the criticism of Susan Rice willfully and intentionally LYING to the American People about Benghazi.
I have decided that WOMEN SHOULD NOT EVEN BE ALLOWED TO VOTE, and will not even entertain any notion that they should be TREATED EQUALLY as Men anymore.
I think she’d settle for nine Communists.
If that was the point she's making, the word "enough" would be non-sequitur.
Unless they are a fellow FReeper, or unless I know specifically that they are a Conservative in my life, I feel the same. Of course, all Obama voters (regardless of genetalia) have proven to me that they do not deserve equal treatment from me.
They get nothing but scorn in my personal life and it is business only, with short answers, whilst at work. They can all KMA!
She doesn't need to. Now that "lord and savior" has been reelected she is free to retire knowing that her seat is guaranteed to another radical.
