Apparently intoxicated by the adulation coming her way of late, as progressives desperately want her not to retire, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg skates close to political advocacy, which should be taboo for a Supreme Court justice.  Last night, she offered a new excuse for Hillary Clinton’s failure to win what most journalists and politicians believed was a slam-dunk presidential race.

This represents an escalation from her earlier charges that “sexism” played a major role in the election, as she did last September:
