US Navy to Name Ship After Ruth Ginsburg

( – The United States Navy will honor former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by naming a ship after her. The vessel, a John Lewis class Oil Tanker, doesn’t carry the prestige of most Navy ships. The less-than-exciting replenishment vessel is the Navy equivalent of “making a sandwich,” according to The Washington Free Beacon.

The ship, officially called the USNS Ruth Bader Ginsburg (T-AO 212), will have the extremely boring job of carrying 162,000 barrels of oil at speeds up to 20 knots.

While some observers would argue that having any Naval ship named is an honor for Ginsburg, others might point out that the Navy has over 350 vessels, many of which carry soon-to-be renamed monikers honoring Confederate battles or figures. It seems a bit odd that they’d relegate a woman loved by so many to the role of a gas station.

Ginsburg, an icon to the liberal Left, is best known for refusing to retire while former President Barack Obama was in office, believing former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would be elected to nominate her successor. Her gamble didn’t pay off and her legacy ended with her seat filled by Justice Amy Coney-Barrett, an accomplished jurist despised by the Left for her Christian beliefs.
