US Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) basically said that Supreme Court Justice won't live past nine months.

She was diagnosed and has had surgery for pancreatic cancer within the past month.

I don't know how long she will live, although the doctors seem confident that they caught it early so she will live for a lot longer.

She was back on the bench today for oral arguments.

I must say that this was a dumb comment because he is not a medical doctor and probably doesn't have her records....

What do you think?

Pretty much what you said.

That said I wouldn't imagine even with a successful fight over this cancer that Justice Ginsburg would be too long for this world.


Though I suppose Senator Bunning is really just gearing up to throw a poopstorm in the Senate when Obama sends a Supreme nominee over. If Obama is smart as I think he is he'll appoint someone who will be easily confirmed. At least the first time through.

Basically I see it as highly likely that Justice Stevens will retire before Obama's term is up (he is afterall 88 years old). I believe Ginsburg's health and future on the court has been a question for sometime.
