Default Ginsburg refers to Graham as one of 'the women of the Senate'

Senility or gross negligence...

Ginsburg refers to Graham as one of 'the women of the Senate'

Quote:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg appears to have been caught up in a gender-swapping snafu, mistakenly dubbing Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) one of the "women of the Senate."

The 84-year-old Supreme Court justice delivered remarks at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania on Monday as she accepted the Prize for Civility in Public Life, honoring her and late Justice Antonin Scalia.

"Let's hope members of Congress, the members Allegheny College has already honored - Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. John McCain - the women of the Senate, Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham - let's hope that they and others of goodwill will lead in restoring harmonious work ways," Ginsburg said during her acceptance speech.

It was still a sexist comment from someone who should know better. Can we presume, that in the future, she will recuse from sex and gender bias cases?

Or is PC finally passť?

And if Ginsberg were a conservative, this sexist slur remark would be all over the news.
Oddly enough, I agree with the judge about L Graham.
