Twitter is buzzing today over the news that Justice Ginsburg wants an all-female Supreme Court. Girls rule, boys drool! Or something. She’s not really sure, what with all the court nonsense interrupting her naptime and all.

From CBS:

Ginsburg made the comment during a 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference at the University of Colorado in Boulder, according to CNS News.

“Now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay,” Ginsburg told the conference. “And when I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough and I say when there are nine, people are shocked.”

That’s right. But, no worries!

Nothing to see here, move along rubes! Hmm, will the court be all “wise Latinas” only or will other women be allowed? Of course, only if they are the “right kind of women” who consider themselves helpless and hapless Julias. No thinkies required! It’s not about the best qualified, it’s only about what’s under your skirt. Wow. You’ve sure come a long way, baby!

Twitter users aren’t moving along. Instead, they are pointing out the obvious with their trademark snark.

What? The horror!

Gasp! What about that Justice Ginsburg? How does that play into your gender card-holding hand?

Here is a Teachable Moment for you, Justice Ginsburg:

Lady smarts, not lady parts.

    id be in favor… if the women who were to be in there were people who have a record of doing a good job and not only because they have a vagina

    Better than an all-female court, how about an all post-menopausal, Alzheimers-afflicted, lesbian court? We’re 1/3 of the way there!

      Because clearly whether or not a woman is menstruating or (what you presume) to be her sexual orientation has so much to do with her competence. As for Alzheimers, well America surived 1981-88 with a president in at least the early stages of Alzheimers, so there ya go. Christ are any of you the least bit embarassed by such stupidity?

        You shouldn’t comment on subjects that go over your head. That should shut you up for…ever.

        Clearly the sarcasm of these post have you baffled. Obama and the rest of the crew govern by breaking us into little pieces parts. We got the latinos (say it with O’s fab accent) we got the LGBT crowd, we got your basic white males over there in the corner (we don’t mention them) and so on. We are just following his example.

        Please sight your medical degree issuing university, the year you obtained it and whether or not you were employed as Reagan’s personal physician while he was president. There is no test for Alzheimer’s you ninny, it’s a judgement call by your physician and the only true confirmation is an autopsy. Get a clue

        After you guys twice elected a man whose only qualification for the Presidency is the fact that he appears to be black, we aren’t embarrassed by ANYTHING!

      • Hiraghm

        you’re right, we should have the SCOTUS he describes, if they can do for the judiciary what President Reagan did for the country!

    A all chick SCOTUS? Sure. here’s my list.

    Ann Coulter
    Michelle Bachmann
    Michelle Malkin
    Laura Inghram
    Megyn Kelly
    Monica Crowley
    Sarah Palin
    Nikki Haley
    and one lib woman (throw them a bone).

    • Concerned

      Lib Woman: Condi Rice.. They would have to accept her if she switched parties or they would be racist right?

      • Hiraghm

        Nah, the token lib would be Ann Coulter… she’s as far left as I would want any of them to be 😀

      Can’t give them a lib woman… then there wouldn’t be room for Kimberly Guilfoyle!

    • Hiraghm

      Geez, it just occurred to me… if SCOTUS had that line up, I’d petition C-Span for an all-SCOTUS channel, and be glued to my tv 24/7… notice how physically attractive as well as mentally adept that list is?

    • syvyn11

      Of course, Megyn would be ‘Chief Justice of Babetown’.

      But I love her for her mind.

    Remember, she would also prefer that we model our Constitution after the one in South Africa.

        She said it when she was in Egypt, advising them on the formation of their new constitution.

        I hear that’s going well.

    Men are less emotional and more logical thinkers then men. I’m a woman, and I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT. I get emotional in my arguments and I feel like an idiot afterwards.

    • Concerned

      Agree but we are probably just a bunch of self hating opressed women lol

      No offense, just using logic here to point this out, but we started going down hill very fast when y’all got the right to vote. #JustSayin

      Obviously, you chicks with a brain that calm the emotion down and use the logic, this need not apply (therefor all those lady parts voters need to take a competency test).

      • Hiraghm

        I think giving women the vote was a symptom, not a cause. Yet another issue the progressives appropriated to further their agenda, like the civil rights movement of the 60s.

    Did you folks know that if you add all the votes cast in the Democratic primaries and caucuses in ’08, Hillary Clinton got over 220 K more votes than Obama? But of course, to the Democrats and their identity politics, it was more important having the first black president than the first female one, so the super delegates disregarded the vote totals to put Obama over the top.

    • Concerned

      Those people are sick.

  • FFlintstone

    Ginsberg is the same woman who was badmouthing the US Constitution all over the world. She’s an activitst, not a constitutionalist.
    The Democratic Party has really dragged America into the gutter. Our ideal used to be to judge people of the content of their character. Now, it’s to judge people by their skin color and what’s between their legs. Sad.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Wow! Leave it to a liberal SCOTUS justice to suggest institutionalization of such a monumentally divisive, sexist, discriminatory idea!!!! Has she lost her frekkin’ mind???? I will personally file the first EEOC lawsuit!!!!! Good grief!!!! This government has gone absolutely off its rocker!!!!

    I’m so glad Ruth paid close attention to her Constitutional Law classes. (I’m being facetious and if you’re not sure what that means look it up).

    Per “The Catholic League” if things Ginsberg says are supposed to be funny does that mean her judicial opinions are jokes, too?

    Survey says …. YES!

    If the SCOTUS was all female, wouldn’t that put Ginsberg out of a job?

  • Hiraghm

    Back in 1985 or ’86, I read about a study in Omni magazine…
    The study analyzed men’s and women’s views on “justice”.
    The men, by a large margin, thought that “justice” was rewarding good behavior and punishing bad behavior.

    The women, by a large margin, thought that “justice” was doing the least harm to the least number.

    The study concluded that this difference was because way back when, men left the camp to go hunting game, and if you screw up out there, someone gets dead. Whereas the women were back at the camp, where they had to keep the lid on the tensions between children, the elderly and the disabled.

    Dunno about the conclusion, but the difference has always disturbed me.
