Is it a legit newspaper (or website)?

I see no obvious indication that it is intended to be "satire" but there are "Fake News" websites and I've never heard of the "Santa Monica Observer" before now, so I'll take this with a grain of salt until I see confirmation elsewhere.
It is bogus.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Surgery For Lung Cancer
A little over a month after fracturing three ribs in a nasty fall, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery for lung cancer on Friday.

According to CNN, "Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung Friday at a New York hospital, the Supreme Court announced."

In a statement released by the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg was to have undergone a "pulmonary lobectomy" in New York City on Friday. Currently, no evidence exists that Ginsburg has any other complications.
...
At 85, Justice Ginsburg has made no plans to retire from her Supreme Court seat, which, if filled by a conservative, would dramatically alter the court's makeup for decades to come. In the early Obama years, progressive activists were hoping she would announce her retirement so that the former president could replace her with an equally liberal judge. After the 2014 midterm, when Republicans took back the Senate, her retirement became all the less likely. Now that President Trump sits in the oval office and Republicans control the Senate, Ginsburg will likely stay on until well past 2020.

"Ginsburg will likely stay on until well past 2020"

The ever-moving hands of time may say otherwise.

If the cancer has moved, then no fucking way.

If still alive, she'll be strapped into one of these:

She's 85 and she's had how many bouts with cancer now? She's had falls. Even making it to 2020 sounds optimistic. Trump leaves office in 2021 at the earliest. Well, maybe sooner but in that case Pence would take over and that would be the same thing as far as the Supreme Court is concerned.

Apparently her fall may have led to them finding the cancer:

What are the odds that they will refuse to vote on a nominee because it's in the president's last year before an election?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The Republicans? They only did that because a Democrat was president. You don't think they'd apply that same made-up rule when they control the senate and the white house at the same time. Do you?

To answer his question, about as good as the odds of the Oakland Athletics winning the Super Bowl this year.

U.S. top court's Ginsburg misses oral arguments again
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's first absence from the bench extended into a second day on Tuesday as the 85-year-old jurist continued her recovery from lung cancer surgery at home.

Although Ginsburg did not attend the oral arguments, she will participate in the cases and rulings by using the briefs and oral argument transcripts, Chief Justice John Roberts announced from the bench.

Ginsburg, who joined the court in 1993, underwent a surgical procedure called a pulmonary lobectomy on Dec. 21 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York to remove two cancerous nodules in her left lung. She was released from the hospital on Christmas Day.
I am guessing this is a bit more serious than she let on...

Nope.

Only she can block it, by not dying for 2 more years.

If dems can nominate someone sane and reasonably acceptable . . .

Why are you smirking like that?

As I was saying, if the dems can just find a person without crazy ideas or obvious red flags. . .

What's so funny mister!! :x

Another question: What happens if she goes into a vegatative state?
They are appointed for life, so I suspect she cant be fired as it were...
granted she wont vote, but could she be replaced?
