Song Honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Hobby Lobby Dissent
Let's see, what rhymes with "it's 2014, get your shit together America"?
Jonathan Mann has been writing a song a day for the last 2,000 days (phew!), but yesterday he had some particularly emotional material to draw on—the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s scathing condemnation thereof. I would suggest supplementing your listening by looking at the actual document, since some of the subtleties of Ginsburg’s 35-page argument are lost, obviously, in an under-three-minute song, and Mann does paraphrase occasionally. Yes, “slut-shaming geezers” is not a Ginsburg quote. Not exactly.
