    Is there enough time for DJT to make an appointment?

    The short answer is yes, but McConnell and the rest of the republicans will have to make it a priority. The nomination is not subject to a filibuster with current Senate rules so the nominee can be confirmed on a straight party line vote. Given the spirited attempts to scuttle the Kavanaugh nomination, the Democrats can be expected to pull out every dirty trick in their bag of tricks to thwart any potential nominee. It will probably be a political shitstorm, Trump could even to decide to run on the importance of the vacancy and hold off with nominating anybody. We should know very soon.

    Ginsburg finally did something I approve of. Deleted previous post.

    Too late. You went too low with that comment. This one isn't better. Just my opinion. She served her country with honor and dignity. Take the politics out of her passing.
    RIP Justice Ginsberg

    So you believe women are second class citizens and RBG was wrong to fight for their rights?

    ginsberg was truly an amazing person. if you have the chance to check it out , her life story is very interesting. i would admit that she probably overstayed her usefulness as a justice. it will be interesting to see how trump plays this out.

    My hope is that Trump will pick someone who believes in the Constitution as written. That effectively defines that person as a conservative and a proponent of the rule of law. Judges who seek to make their own law from the bench have always disgusted me because that is the road to chaos.

    I believe President Trump will pick Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS.

    I personally would nominate the best qualified person for the job regardless if it was a woman or a man, gay or straight, black, white or whatever. The SCOTUS job should be for the person that will make decisions that uphold the true definition of our Constitution fairly as written by our Constitutional framers. The only thing the Liberals are worried about is the abortion issue and the Fillibuster issues. Again.... I have different opinions on issues. I'm against late term abortion just to abort a life. Are there reasons to have late term abortions? Yes, severe birth defects, rape, incest but most of those issues should of been decided before late term decisions. Still, I believe following the intent of the framers of the Constitution is the most important job criteria to get the job.

    She was on the short list last time. Not likely Schumer will accuse her of rape either.

    The big fight for her will be that she is a mother of 7 and will be considered the main fight of Roe v. Wade fight that will be surely the battle against her nomination.

    Always like Levin. No BS, and when really dumb $hit is going on he gets pretty fired up.

    I've been a big fan of O'Reilly since I saw him call out Letterman and offered a wager of a million dollars to a charity of Letterman's choice. Don't recall what the facts in question were, but Mr. Funny guy wasn't happy when he backed down. Makes me think Letterman knew his "facts" he voiced so adamantly were bull$hit from the start.

    Agreed. While RBG should be recognised for levelling the playing field for women in society and perhaps now is not the time to be unduly critical, there is an elephant in the room. She was seriously ill to the point that over the past year at least she has been incapable of adequately fulfilling her SCOTUS responsibilities and should have resigned. Her attempt to outlast DJT solely because of her rampant TDS discredits her and will remain a blight on her record. Amy Barrett is a superb candidate and should be nominated and confirmed ASAP.
    Will Metairie native Amy Coney Barrett be Trump's Supreme Court choice? Here are key factors

    Pelosi is already threatening to file a second impeachment against Trump to stop any nomination to SCOTUS. I think Trump should call her bluff. Check Blue (Radical Sorass funded group) and others are threatening riots if a nominee is put forward. Let them riot, that plays to Trump's strength as the law and order candidate. Meanwhile, Joe Biden said in an interview today that 200 million Americans would be dead from Corona Virus by the time he finished speaking. Can't even read the teleprompter any more.
