Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, speaking at George Washington University Law School, expressed a lack of appreciation for the partisan show that consumes the Supreme Court Justice Confirmation process
“The atmosphere in ’93 was truly bipartisan. The vote on my confirmation was 96 to 3, even though I had spent about 10 years of my life litigating cases under the auspices of the ACLU and I was on the ACLU board,” she continued.
“Think of Justice Scalia, who’s certainly a known character in, what was it? 1986,” Ginsburg said, according to The Washington Times. “The vote was unanimous, every Democrat and every Republican voted for him.
“That’s the way it should be, instead of what it’s become, which is a highly partisan show.
She’s not happy with Republicans either but after the veto override on the NH Biomass bailout bill, neither am I.
