Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg released from hospital after cancer surgery

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...al/2413300002/

Quote:
WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been released from the hospital after cancer surgery.

Ginsburg, the leader of the court's liberal faction, was discharged on Christmas Day and is recuperating at home, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement on Wednesday.

Ginsburg, 85, underwent a pulmonary lobectomy last week at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The procedure to remove two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung followed their discovery during tests performed last month to diagnose and treat rib fractures suffered in a fall on Nov. 7.

...Earlier this year, Ginsburg said she intended to stay on the bench for at least five more years, noting that Associate Justice John Paul Stevens served until age 90. Stevens retired in 2010 and is now 98.

The second woman appointed to the court – Justice Sandra Day O'Connor became the first in 1981 – Ginsburg has gained celebrity status as the "Notorious RBG." She is the subject of a recent documentary, "RBG," and a feature film, "On the Basis of Sex,"which opens in theaters this week.

An early analysis of Democrats' preferences going into 2020:

https://news.yahoo.com/usa-today-suf...110006925.html

Quote:
WASHINGTON – Democratic and independent voters are crystal clear about the candidate they'd be most excited to see in the 2020 presidential field: Someone entirely new. Oh, and also the most seasoned prospect.

Asking voters their pick for president more than a year before the primaries begin typically doesn't tell you much beyond name recognition. Instead of asking about support, a USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll tested which candidates now seem intriguing to voters, and who turns them off, in an effort to get clues about the dynamic ahead.

Landing at the top of the list of 11 options was "someone entirely new" – perhaps a prospect not on the political radar screen yet. Nearly six in 10 of those surveyed – 59 percent – said they would be "excited" about a candidate like that; only 11 percent said they'd prefer that a new face not run.

That said, close behind was Joe Biden, the opposite of someone entirely new. Biden, now 76, was a veteran senator from Delaware before he served two terms as President Barack Obama's vice president. He's weighing whether to make his third bid for the Democratic nomination; 53 percent said they would be excited about that, while 24 percent urged him not to run.

"He has the common touch," said Thomas Maslany, 72, a Democratic retiree from Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, who worked for the Environmental Protection Agency. He thought Democrats might need to nominate an older white male to defeat President Trump for re-election, although he agreed the party needs to move to a new generation of leaders. "The world's changing so fast."

Catherine O'Connor, 63, an artist and a political independent from Lockport, New York, had an idea how to reconcile those conflicting impulses: nominate Biden for president and choose someone like California Sen. Kamala Harris or Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke as his running mate.

While she mentioned O'Rourke, she also worried that the three-term House member, who lost his bid for the Senate last month, and other newcomers, lack enough experience for the Oval Office.

Yeah.
Both comments.





But to iterate the first one:




God, please let this happen.

This is a terrific (and stomach churning) read, if you have the time.

The man's entire existence is a con.

A very good read. I don't really know what else to say about it because its main points seem indisputable.

He probably thinks David Boreanaz is the team leader.

I’ve been rewatching the West Wing since it’s either back on netflix or was just always been there and I didn’t notice. It’s such an unrealistic work of fiction. In one of the first few episodes the press secretary gets mad that she accidentally lied to the press. That would never happen in real life.

I sure hope so. I also hope it includes his entire crime family too.

Trump logic

"If you don't give me the money to build the wall, I'm going to close the southern border and not let anyone in"

Also, it will be your fault if I shoot this child because you haven’t given me the ransom.

If you can shut down the border and not let anyone in... why do we need a wall?

I'm still wondering why he needs this money from Congress when he's spent the last two years claiming Mexico would pay for the wall.
