    All of us who were saying she was already dead were saying that they were going to drop this right before the election.

    I am watching Fox news and they cut away from Trump Rally for this news. They have obviously prerecorded this segment. They have all this praise ready for the occasion.

    I had a feeling that she had already been dead the past couple years.

    The fact that Trump might replace 3 Supreme Court judges within a span of 4 years is unprecedented. Not sure if theres ever been another time where this happened.

    In all seriousness though, this is bad news for Trump.

    Democrats who were not motivated for Biden are now going to be seriously motivated to get out and vote against Trump.

    Trump could announce his nominee ASAP and then demand Biden announce his nominee putting Biden in the hot seat.

    Now, were some of us just questioning whether the recent charges against Judge Napolitano had anything to do with the expiration date on RBG?

    I think we were!

    Now, if not Napolitano (still my first choice, pending investigation of dubious charges), then who?

    I nominate Trump appointee U.S. District Judge William S. Stickman IV, who recently struck down Pennsylvania's COVID-1984 dictates as unConstitutional, in that case.

    It's good news, this will get out R votes for POTUS and Senate far more than D votes and if McConnell keeps his promise and confirms a replacement before the election it will seriously demoralize the Demoncrats.

    That will be the raging debate. McConnell somewhat painted himself into a corner with the delay in Senate after Scalia died and Obama nominated Garland.

    It is as certain as the sun rising tomorrow that Schumer (if he had a majority) and a Democrat President would push through a nomination and vote within a month.

    As a gross generalization, a group who tends towards logic, justice and consistency is at a disadvantage against a group that is driven by emotion, tribe and "by any means necessary".

    McConnell has the ring of power. Should he use it? Can he win a vote with the RINOs in Senate like Romney?

    Democrats also countered that the U.S. Constitution obliged the president to nominate and obliged the Senate to give its advice and consent in a timely manner. Republicans argued in response that the Senate was fulfilling its obligation of advice and consent by saying that the next president should make the appointment. There were, however, 11 months left to President Obama's term at the time of Scalia's death, and the Democrats argued that no precedent existed for such a lengthy delay and that previous presidents had nominated individuals in election years.[18] Democrats also argued that even if such a precedent existed, President Obama's term had sufficient time remaining that such a precedent would not apply. The precedent, known as the Thurmond rule, dated back to President Lyndon B. Johnson's 1968 nomination of Abe Fortas to become chief justice, but had since been inconsistently applied.

    I don't see any confirmation before Nov. 3rd. Whoever Trumps nominates will hve some ditz from their past make sexual abuse allegations against them and we will go through the whole Kavanaugh delay.

    IDK. Democrats had zero enthusiasm yesterday. This could ignite a fire that could swing Democrat Trump supporters back to Harris.

    Ginsburg's death has pretty much raised the stakes of this election. Replacing her is a great opportunity that hopefully doesn't get squandered.

    To maintain delicate diversity balance, it would be best if her replacement is of same gender, religion. This would be the wrong time to shake the applecart.

    I just saw the news just this second. Are people seriously suggesting that Trump won't jam someone through? Trump had better nominate someone. I don't care if McConnell hesitated on Garland. Take the gloves and jam someone through.

    Trump can and will nominate someone.

    Unfortunately, McConnell won't be able to push them through. Murkowski, Collins and Graham have already said that they won't vote to confirm anyone. Romney will be with them. RINOs strike again.

    Never say never with Trump but it probably is not going to be quick appointment. Currently alienated GOP conservative/evangelical base would want someone clearly pro-life, pro-DOMA/anti gay marriage and Trump leaning liberal progressive wing of GOP in power these days likely won't accept anyone who is not pro LGBTQ rights, pro DACA or anyone too opposed to gun controls. While Dems are pretty united on liberal progressive values, GOP is divided currently on what are "Republican values".. sort of going through rebrithing pains lately.
    Considering what happened with his last CFR/other picks, getting a CINO (conservative in name only)/RINO to slip through few weeks before elections won't be easy.

    "Conservative" SCOTUS Rules LBGT protected by law, but punts gun rights cases

    Trump SCOTUS pick delivers historic LGBTQ Civil Rights win





    ETA:
    Also, latest reporting suggests that if Prez Trump altered gender diversity and did not pick a woman, alternate would most likely boost ethnic diversity along the lines of Biden's "First South Asian VP pick in history, Kamala Harris' diversity play.

    Collins is up for election this year and she's polling below 50%. Refusing to vote on Trump's pick could possibly cause her to lose her seat.

    Maybe. It would seem voting on this in the lame duck session after the election would take a lot of heat off of this vote. What would Murkowski's excuse be. Trump should probably nominate someone pro-choice as a compromise to Murkowski to get her vote.
