#2 I hope her passing will be treated with respect.

#3 Not that any cancer is good or less bad, but that pancreatic cancer...that's a rough one.

Then again, let's not forget she was 87. Credit to her for hanging in there as long as she did.

RIP.

#4 One can respect the ability, drive and effort to ascend to the most prestigious legal post in our Republic. I can also feel contempt for her partisan abuse of her office by not retiring Years ago.

#5  I hope her passing will be treated with respect.

There are idiots on both sides who will say idiotic things, European Conservative. But she worked hard until the end, and while I did not agree with all her positions, she held her own in the most demanding arena we have.

How fortunate that President Trump has a list of contenders ready made for this moment, and in Senator Mitch McConnell a partner ready to move on the nomination quickly.

#6 Where will Sotomayor, Breyer, Kagen, and Kennedy get their lockstep marching orders now? OMG! Who will write their opinions for them???!?

#7 Democrats will fight tooth and nail to prevent confirmation of her replacement until after the election. Expect every dirty trick in the book. But if the election goes south for Republicans, a new justice could be our only hope.

#8 You can almost add Roberts to that list, Frank. Roberts is just pathetic.

#9 There's enough time to fill the seat. But I'm not sure what impact this will have on the elections. The process could put both sides on steroids.

May Mitch McConnell will prefer a lame duck Senate for the confirmation process. Some Republican senators might not along with him if they see their reelection going down the drain. Think Collins.

#10 It is heartening to see the decency and respect paid to her long tenure. For my part, suffice it to say it is tragically poignant that she has been called to 'perform the same tasks to the same standards as men'. Karma has a very, very long johnson.

#11  Democrats will fight tooth and nail to prevent confirmation of her replacement

They can fight, but they don’t have the numbers to make anything happen. And Mitch McConnell has yet to surrender to the claim that decency requires him to give them their way.

#12 She should have been allowed to spend the last few months with her family, and earned reputation, than paraded like Marco Antonio Bragadin.

#13 McConell won't get more than 50 votes (Collins, Murkowski & Romney not among them) and it would only take one other to abstain to block confirmation; I'm sure there is one somewhere.

#14 If you think the fight over Brett Kavanaugh's nomination was rough, you ain't seen nothing yet. This confirmation fight will make that one look like a kindergarten slap fight.

#16 RBG, should have retired for health reasons long ago. Same reasons I'm saying Justice Thomas should consider retiring if the rumors about his health are true.

RBG, I hope you realize now when you meet your maker, just how big an error you made on Abortion.

As for the GOP senators? RINOS. Especially Murkowski who needs to be primaried and smeared HARD for being a squish, and Romney primaried for being a mega squish and an accomplice for obstruction by liberals on so many things.

Collins is what she is because of her electorate. But Utah and Alaska are not Maine. Get them out of there and put in a real conservative.

#18 Didn't agree w/ most of her arguments but they were well founded and articulate. RIP and can only hope the comment trolls just sit this one out.

#20 Let the fun begin. Without her, the split is more towards center. Court starts in October. Delay, yeah, that'll work for you.

#21 Replacing her is gonna look like WWIII.

#22 I had her going out in July.

If I was Trump, I would put a woman of color squish up for the nomination to replace her. He still has 2-3 picks next term and a lefty squish nomination would blow the left and the MSM's mind.

A worthy adversary and a good person.

Now, on to nominating and confirming Amy Coney Barrett .

#24 I'm sorry but she voted to keep the practice of dismembering live babies legal. Nobody who permits that sort of evil is a good person.

I expect emails saying that are going to be in the mail by Monday.

#26 Trump had better get a young judge, one that will live for another 40 years.

#27 If Trump picks a woman of color and the left goes after her the way they certainly will it could cause some serious shifting of votes.
