Bloomberg Business this morning published its interview with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in which the 81-year-old justice discussed same-sex marriage and Obamacare, which she considers to be the cornerstone of President Obama’s legacy.
It was her comments on gay marriage that caused the biggest ripples on social media, though. The Human Rights Campaign, self-described as “America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality,” quickly turned Ginsburg’s comments into a poster for the organization and a solicitation for signatures at thepeoplesbrief.org.
Not much later, Vox premiered its own poster immortalizing Ginsburg’s words.
Um, hold onto that Medal of Valor until you hear out Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume. Early this summer, the Supreme Court is to rule on same-sex marriage. How will Ginsburg rule, we wonder?
Ed Whelan asks the obvious at National Review Online: “How can Ginsburg possibly think that it’s proper judicial conduct for her to speak out on this issue while the marriage case is pending before the Court?”
It’s BuzzFeed News’ legal editor, apparently not at all concerned with Ginsburg’s impropriety. Which reminds us: When is BuzzFeed’s fawning Ginsburg graphic going to be ready?
