Justice Ginsburg: SC’s senator Graham a GIRL

So, either she’s made an observation that would get a conservative-leaning person FRIED in the driveby media, or she’s as senile and brain-dead as a 2×4.  (Kinda makes you feel all warm and fuzzy about such a person making life-changing decisions for ALL OF US.) :…
