Vox’s Ian Millhiser always has the hottest takes, so when he says that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was “the greatest lawyer of her generation,” keep in mind that he was also confused that Joe Biden isn’t widely perceived as one of the country’s great political talents.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol so that the public could pass through and pay their respects. Apparently, though, Millhiser seems to think that because President Trump rushed Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination that the nation wasn’t given time to properly mourn the death of Ginsburg.

“The pain of her loss was overwhelmed by fear of the future.”

You know who we were never given time to mourn? Merrick Garland, may he rest in peace.

This editor lives in an area so blue people had yard signs featuring Ruth Bader Ginsburg next to their Biden/Harris signs.

Speaking of opinions, a lot of people in the comments are hoping that a Biden administration rights this injustice and properly recognizes Ginsburg, maybe by making her birthday a national holiday or something. We’re not sure what they want.
