#3 She is generally viewed as belonging to the liberal wing of the court.

Sherlock - how do you do it?

#4 I have been unable to find any additional reporting to substantiate this Santa Monica article from yesterday.

History.com last did a bio update on 9 Nov 2018.

#5 No friggen way she'll retire. Even if she's in the hospital she'll never give up her grip until she's stone cold dead.

#8 If RBG dies (she will NEVER retire), the fight over the confirmation of her replacement will make the Kavanaugh confirmation look like a mere slap fest. Trump will have to nominate a woman, because any man will be accused of running a rape brothel. Of course, the woman will be accused of being an active prostitute.

#9 Could archived holographic recordings of RBG's views on a wide spectrum of topics be admissible ?

#10 I will really enjoy the shit show that will happen for her replacement.

If Trump nominates a conservative LGBT woman of color, liberal heads will explode everywhere.

And the answer is: Stormy Daniels

I'm betting on this scenario. The left will try to keep her alive forever. Maybe she will be sent to a life-extension facility for rejuvenation by some any means.

#16 I wonder how many recent Senate concession speeches will be revoked.

#17 Nominate the Hildabeast and have fun with the ensuing FBI background investigation that should have been.

#18 Rambler in Virginia, I'm curious if it will go that way. Usually a team fights harder to stay even when their is a chance to win, than they do when they know they've lost and they need to prevent the other team from running up the score.

I suspect the rage will be about the nature of the Supreme Court (with lifetime appointments and 9 members) and US government in general (electoral collage primarily) and less about the nominee.

The old fall back, virgin's blood? I understand reliable sources there should be a lot available from millennials.

Nowadays, you just put your brain in a robot body.

#23 A fusty old justice was Ruth...
Exhausted, to tell you the truth.
Now, thanks to the glands,
She has huge, hairy hands
And is almost too long in the tooth.

Youth? Not going there.

#24 Youth? Not going there.

Okay, that's some stupid shit and I shouldn't have said it. Not that they, of all people, couldn't handle it, but black Burgers (and I know you're out there... I see those teeth!) don't need that. Not here, of all places, and certainly not from the likes of me. Sorry.

#25 It's fake news. The Santa Monica Observer is apparently a fake new site, run by a disbarred lawyer, which publishes a lot of click-bait fake news to drive up the site's numbers.

#26  It's fake news.

Thank you, JC. That explains why Besoeker could not find any corroborating links.
