God bless capitalism.
Since Trump was elected, and especially since he nominated Brett “Literally Handsmaid Tale” Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the left has been doing their best to convince themselves that Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the oldest member of the court by far, can last long enough to prevent yet another Trump nominee to the bench.
Ginsburg, is possibly the most optimistic of them all, reassuring hand-wringing liberals everywhere she’s got “probably at least another five years.” Phew! (Although I don’t imagine the pressure she’s now under to outlive the Trump administration would be very good for anyone’s health.)
We’ve even been led to believe that the spry 85-year-old is so fit, that a 27-year-old Politico correspondent could barely keep up:

To be fair, I think this speaks much more to the lack of physical fitness of today’s liberal 20-something males than it does to Ginsburg’s ability to race against time.
Still, they’re determined to galvanize her as a hero…and now she even has her own action figure!
The Hill explains the item that is sure to make Christmas shopping a heck of a lot easier this year:
A company that created a successful Kickstarter campaign to make a Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg action figure says it is planning to ship the products in October.
Fctry, a product incubator based in Brooklyn, N.Y., initially hoped to raise $15,000 to create the “Notorious RBG” superhero but instead raised over $613,700 on its Kickstarter crowdfunding page.
Zoe Cronin, the company’s marketing coordinator, said it was “shocking” that the funding campaign reached the initial goal in less than an hour.
She’s super realistic, too:
If having your own action figure doesn’t reassure America you’ve got “maybe at least five more years” on the bench, I don’t know what will.
