    There’s Going To Be A Ruth Bader Ginsburg Movie Starring Natalie Portman


    "while still a practicing attorney, Ginsburg authored the brief in Reed v. Reed that convinced the Supreme Court to hold unanimously and for the first time that the Constitution’s promise of equal protection of the laws applies to women. Five years later, Ginsburg’s brief in Craig v. Boren convinced the Court to hold that all laws that engage in gender discrimination should be treated with skepticism under the Constitution."

    Yawn. Give me a bowl of popcorn and "Iron Lady" instead. OTOH, the makeup artist might garner an Oscar nomination. Still, I'd rather listen to Sandra Day O'Connor any day. Where's Clare Boothe Luce when we need her?

    LOL! I'd rather just watch Judge Judy. And I do.

    One of my law school classmates went on to become a "star" on "Divorce Court!"

    Wasn't AngelinaJolie available? This is laughable, there isn't enough make up around to make Portman look that ugly

    Excellent! Thanks for sharing. At a time when when so many civil liberties are in jeopardy,this refreshing.

    I'm not sure what Natalie Portman playing RBG has to do with eroding civil liberties. But, yes, civil liberties are eroding especially during the last 6 years. And RBG was in the majority that decided that the eminent domain meant that a town could take your house if it wanted to build luxury condos.

    Someone once described the difference between Republicans and Democrats this way:

    "Republicans want you to have freedoms over your lives except when it comes to the bedroom; Democrats want you to be free to do whatever you want in your bedroom but want to control everything else in your life."

    southbeach1500 saidI look forward to the scene where she was drunk at the State of the Union speech and could barely stay awake.



    So you determined from that snippet she was 1) drunk and 2) couldn't stay awake?

    How long was that, 7 seconds? What is your expertise, are you a cop, a bartender, or just a snarky republican?

    Yeah, that's what I figured.

    If you think the Supreme Court should be based on looks, the men don't do so well either. (OK Roberts is kinda hot....but young relatively!)

    I could easily see Natalie Portman play a young Notorious RBG!

    She admitted it. She said she had too much wine at dinner.

    She also admitted she dozes off quite a bit and retired Justice Souter would give her an elbow when she did but the justices now are too timid. She seems pretty cool.

    As if it wasn't already obvious you're an ill-informed political drone... She ADMITTED IT you idiot.


    Semantics asshole. Too much wine with dinner and feeling drowsy for an 82 year old woman.....or drunk and can't stay awake.


    Big Fucking Deal!


    Here's to the Notorious RBG! Cheers!

    Ginsburg admitted that this year she had slept through the speech “as I often do.”
    “I vowed this year just sparkling water — stay away from the wine — but the dinner was so delicious it needed wine,” she said, speaking about a dinner party beforehand to which Justice Anthony Kennedy brought “very fine California wine.”

    She reported getting home from the event to a call from one of her granddaughters.

    “She said, ‘Bubbe, you were sleeping!’” Ginsburg said.


    Justice Antonin Scalia, who was also at the Thursday night event, told moderator Nina Totenberg of NPR that he stopped going to the address years ago.

    See? If you would actually know what you are talking about before you go down your usual path of ill-informed posting, you wouldn't look like such a moron. icon_wink.gif



    It doesn't change your contempt. As I said it's semantics. What you consider "drunk" and "unable to stay awake" is really no BFD.

    What you make out to be a character defect is nothing more than a dinner party with another Chief Justice.

    I didn't know about it earlier. No big fucking deal either! Nor does it matter. You're all bullshit anyway.

    She was BOTH "drunk and "unable to stay awake."

    Why don't you just stop already. You're just making yourself look even sillier.


    You're the one who posted the video, as if it mattered. It's of no matter to me if an 82 year old woman had a couple (or 4) glasses of wine! Hell, the State of the Union is probably boring as can be, The Justices hear it from Bush, Clinton, Bush again, Obama. etc. etc. they don't care! They are Justices for life. She could have made hand squawks for all I care.

    Maybe there will be a scene in the movie. Kind of like Jane Fonda/Lily Tomlin in Gracie & Frankie....it would be funny.
