Resting Judgement Face
Flopping Aces ^ | 10-11-18 | Wordsmith

So apparently this had liberals talking in the Twitterverse:

Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court was the most contentious nomination process in decades, and it provoked fierce, lengthy debates across the United States. However, there was one group of people expected to keep quiet about it, and that would be the justices already sitting on the bench. For the most part, they did keep their opinions to themselves, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg's face during Kavanaugh's swearing-in ceremony did leave many onlookers attempting to decode what, exactly, she was thinking.

Sitting between other members of the Supreme Court, Ginsburg appeared to slightly glower during the ceremony, including during Kavanaugh's speech. People on Twitter were quick to attempt interpreting her expression.

Many said that the Supreme Court justice reflected how women were feeling in light of Kavanaugh's successful nomination. "RBG is every democratic women in Americaright now," wrote writer Molly Jong Fast.

Some even suggested that they almost felt bad for the justice. "Poor RBG having deal with this belligerent misogynist," wrote organizer Amy Siskind.

Though it's not clear whether Ginsburg intended to send any specific message with her expression during Kavanaugh's swearing-in ceremony, the people of Twitter seemed eager to find a conduit for their own thoughts and emotions. "RBG's expression at Kavanaugh's swearing in says it all," wrote one user.

Indeed, screen shots and photographs of her posture while attending the ceremony rapidly circulated across social media. "The disgust on RBG’s face is me," wrote lawyer Aditi Juneja.

Oh, ye self-deluded Kavanaugh-haters grasping for a lifeline.

Here's how she looked at Kavanaugh's ceremony:

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is as happy as a clam. I mean, look at his face!

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was spotted with a smile that traveled from one ear to the other.

Retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy shows pride in what his protégé has accomplished.

And, lastly, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg looked completely nauseous and absolutely devastated being forced to sit through the final confirmation ceremony of a Constitutionalist judge nominated by President Donald Trump.

Take a look:

See some of the Tweets by feminists and progressives.

The only problem with this (as the above link points out)?  RBG is old.  She's 85.  She always looks like this.  That's her resting face.

Not to burst their celebratory bubble, but this "What am I doing here?" face is typical of Ginsburg, even when among fellow lefties. Have they forgotten the woman fell asleep at one point during Barack Obama's SOTU address? The photo below of her posing with several feminists at the Sundance Film Festival doesn't exactly scream, "happy to be here, folks."

The truth of the matter means little to feminists, however, who view Ginsburg's seemingly dazed expression, according to Bustle, as a "small catharsis for those who didn't think that he should have been confirmed."

Here she is enjoying a high-intensity workout:

Amy SisFrontHole is a Twitter liar of the First Order.

"RBG is every democratic woman in America right now," wrote writer Molly Jong Fast.

Molly Jong Fast is another totally obnoxious Twitter Front Hole.

RBG’s expression is one of utter chagrin. She’s irrelevant, now. It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

RBG is barely cognizant. I think that’s what her expression shows.

She’s irrelevant now.

Worse than irrelevant. She could have resigned under Obama. That might have created enough attention on the Democrat’s part that Hillary would have won.

We all owe a great debt of gratitude to RBG. Her decision to cling to office will benefit my grandchildren far into the future.

Even Breyer has a smile on his face. Ruth looks like she wants to get back home to stir her cauldron.

Saw her on T.V interview asked to compare her
confirmation hearing to Kavanaughs.
Her reply was.”Mine was right. His was wrong.”
She was on Kavanaughs side!!! I was shocked.
Did I miss hear/see the T.V.???

I had also come to that conclusion. She and Breyer had an opportunity to take one for the team and both retire. That would have given Obama the opportunity to appoint two young total loons who would be there for decades.

I saw the same interview, she pointed out that her handlers said she would get a lot of grief due to her 10+ years on the ACLU. She pointed out she did not receive a single ACLU question. I assume she was saying in a defacto manner that the Senators knew she would make rulings based on the Constitution. I don’t she has, but I’m sure she does.

I could care less about what Miss Drunken Supreme Court Justice has to say.

Associate Justice Ruth Ginsburg is a national Treasure. She is to women as Thurgood Marshall was to minorities- a fierce, learned fighter for real civil rights.
A girl born poor who excelled at everything. She is a model for boys and girls to aspire and inspire.
She has fought against encroachment of the Fourth Amendment, almost always with Justice Antonin Scalia.I hope Justice Kavanaugh is as good.
I wish everybody here will read her biography.
