The problem with this portrayal of ginsburg as some kind of legal genius and deep thinker is that in reality she was a knee-jerk leftist.
You name me any case she decided in her career, the facts and which side the political left in this country would support, and I guarantee I can tell you her stance on the matter.
So-called “conservative” justices on the bench are not this rigid and ideologically hide-bound. Ginsberg’s ‘great’ legal mind is a sham, obscuring the fact that she voted in a reliably leftist side of all issues, just as the 3 remaining leftist judges do. You might as well have a windvane that points to prevailing leftist wind on any issue and it could decide every one of her cases with the same amount of ‘deliberation’.
She wasn’t even good at defending her left-wing moon battery, her dissents lack legal authority and are based on emotional or demagogic cant. She damaged our society with her political bias, poor judgement and vicious partisanship (going so far as to break court tradition and good sense by no weighing in on presidential elections lest she be called upon to decide an important matter concerning the election).
Never wish for another’s death, but we are better off with her off the court, whatever the reason. And there is no reason to accede to her dying wish she not be replaced before the election. She cynically gamed the ‘lifetime’ tenure to hang on in hopes of out-lasting PDT long after she could do the job competently (although her only real job was to echo the leftist angle on any issue).
God defeated her in the end, He has his reasons. Confirm a new justice quickly, Godspeed President Trump.
