Justice Ginsburg, who spoke Wednesday at the George Washington University Law School, laments that things aren’t like they used to be, that they’re now so partisan.

But, let’s be honest. The most interesting thing about this video is how frail she is. Will she survive or be able to work another two years? Maybe. But I doubt it.
Sorry to be brutal. I wish her many more years of life and productivity. But her appearance here and her prospects for staying on the Court matter.
