If anyone has ever played Mortal Kombat, they would know one of the main villains is Shang Tsung, a wizard who can suck the soul out of his enemies and consume it in order to regain his youth.

It’s a trope we’ve seen throughout storytelling history, with a dark ritual being performed by a person familiar with the dark arts that involve consuming the young or pure in order to regain vitality. Voldemort did it to unicorns, the witches in Hocus Pocus did it to kids, Shang Tsung did it if you pressed up, down, up, low-kick in MK2 for a fatality.

And now some in high positions who lean to the left hope it can be done in the real world in order to extend the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

No, I’m not joking.

Roger Simon, Politico’s former Chief Political Columnist, and current Chicago Sun-Times journalist, mused out loud in a bizarre tweet on Twitter about giving up a day of your life in order to transfer it to the notorious RGB in order to extend her life well into the future.

“If it were possible, would you subtract one day off your life and add it to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life for one extra day of good health?” tweeted Simon. “If just 10,000 people did this, it would add 27 productive years to her life.”

One goofy guy making out a ridiculous wish that, when you really break it down, is actually kind of macabre, right?

I want to draw your attention to the above tweet, specifically to the number of likes it currently has. That number is 3,229.

When you really think about it, the tweet is kind of sad. So desperate is the left to keep Ginsberg perfectly preserved and in her Supreme Court position that they are willing to give up a portion of their own lives in order to extend hers.

This isn’t because they like her. Most leftists don’t know a thing about her other than a few simple facts, but they don’t have any emotional investment in RGB. For the vast majority, she’s not a friend or family member. What she is is a political tool. A barrier between the Supreme Court and President Donald Trump.

Let me lay this weirdness out to you.

In their fear that the Supreme Court would fall victim to the dastardly machinations of the dreaded right, they would willingly sacrifice a portion of their time on this Earth in order keep alive a woman they don’t know so that she can continue to serve as their hard-left political mouthpiece.

That’s just weird.

I do feel bad for whoever Trump puts up to replace Ginsburg if and when she leaves the Supreme Court. If you thought the war over Brett Kavanaugh was bad, you just wait.
