The senator I don't like to talk about

I meant to post this yesterday, but somehow it slipped my mind. Anyway, I've often posted kind words for California's excellent junior senator. However, I rarely mention our other senator, Dianne Feinstein. Generally she just doesn't get my attention as often as Boxer, but when she does I get the impression that... she kind of sucks. It was a post on Eschaton that brought this to mind:

Andrew Raisiej, who's running for New York City Public Advocate, writes about a response he recieved when he gave a technology presentation to the Senate Democratic Caucus:
First Senator Dianne Feinstein raised her hand and said, "Senator Daschle, the Internet is full of pornography and pedophilia, and until that's clean up, I don't think the Senate should be on the Internet." (And she represents Silicon Valley!)

After banging my head on the desk, I wondered what the chances are we could get a primary challenger. Probably not so good. Sigh...

No chance. Both parties have a 99% chance of supporting there incumbent no matter how much they suck since the public is dumb and has a 90% chance of reelecting any incumbent even if they are grossly incompetent.

Googlefight results:

pornography 6,060,000

pedophilia 735,000


I think we have a clear winner here!


(I agree her comments were dumb...)
