Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is 84 Today, Remains Badass: Your Open Thread!
No, seriously, we would like to move to New Zealand with her. Wonkette and RBG would make great roomies.
The universe, which has lately been infested by trickster spirits and malign forces, has at least seen fit to accept stare decisis on the continued health and good fortune of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is 84 today and intends to remain brilliant and awesome for a long time to come. She's been on the court since August 10, 1993, and has made the United States a much better place to live.
You have to admire a jurist who fights passionately for justice, gay marries everyone (even flying to Vietnam to do that), speaks her mind both politely and without giving any fucks, and is such an opera fan that she's performed in one (in a non-singing role) and was happy to set aside judicial business to go to the Kennedy Center for operas with Antonin Scalia, because work is work, but Puccini is important too. Their odd-couple love of opera was even the basis for a comic opera in 2015.
Yr Wonkette is ad-free and ready to party. Or nap. Both are nice. The point is, no ads, so please click the donations bar just below this post so we can at least attempt to keep up with RBG, who we suspect can really cut a rug.
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
