Tweet of the Day: Ruth Bader Ginsburg wants America to know she can no longer do her job

Ruth Bader Ginsburg turned 83 on March 15. The mention of her age is not meant to imply that she has taken leave of her faculties. But she is quoted in a tweet by Adam White of the Hoover Institution that is generating some buzz.

The money part of the tweet, which follows, is a quote in which the Supreme Court justice ponders the imponderable in the upcoming presidential election:

Here’s the tweet, followed by some of the reactions so far:
