“Thrift, thrift, Horatio! The funeral baked meat did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables.”

Our dear Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died yesterday, Friday, September 18th. The same day the Republican leader of the United State Senate announced he would have a nominee named and appointed to fill her vacancy before the 2020 Presidential election has chosen the next President.

In Hamlet, the Prince alludes to the shameless behavior of his mother Gertrude being able to use the leftover food from his father’s funeral to furnish her wedding feast to her second husband. It is an example of total shamelessness.

Yesterday the behavior of Republican politicians did Gertrude one better.

  1. Did you see the clip of Lindsay Graham reversing course on this issue? When Obma was president, he said that we should wait until after the election. Now with Trump at the helm, somehow it’s different.

  2. And then Elizabeth Warren (and others) said: “Not so fast buddy.”

    Love the Hamlet analogy. Thank you for that.

    And what a shame that instead of reminding ourselves of her extraordinary legacy we have to delve into the murky depths of the GOP mind.
