#1 Planning to die together with California, eh?

#2 Got to help sucker the youth into funding the generation that impoverished them the most, and especially in rentierist Kaliphornia.

#3 Feinstein, Pelosi, McCain, Fonda, Ginsburg, Kissinger, Mugabe...and you ask me why I read the obits ?

#4 DI-FI is wrong. If there is cause, such as a conflict of interest, Trump can fire Mueller.

#6 Not planning to retire? It is a shame. Kalifornia has about 40 million people...there's got to be a decent replacement somewhere in the Golden State...is there something in the water?

#7 The only way they will get her out is on a gurney

#9 The question you should ask is what the real estate business holdings are for her hubby. After election agin, at the right moment, she retires and Jerry or Gavin merely appoints the next Socialist/Progressive/Minority Senator to further the far left agenda. Leftist autocracy playing the theater of the absurd for the ignorant masses who wait for the goodies.

#10 I don't know. At least Feiny seems to have a grasp of the issues.
Remember, the last time Cal got a new senator, we ended up with Kamala-la-la Harris, D. dipshit.
Be care what you wish for.

#11 We ended up with Kamala-la-la Harris, D. dipshit. Fortunately, this woman is her own worst enemy when she opens her mouth. Feinstein gets it right occasionally but then again every blind pig finds an ear of corn occasionally too.

#12 This is one example of why we need term limits, and a convention of the states to propose the necessary amendment, because it would never get out of Congress.

Keep in mind that Senators such as Feinstein & McCain aren't just individuals; they become industries of staff, toadies, hangers-on, etc., devoted to power, influence, fundraising, and so forth. The pressure to NOT retire is enormous.

Murder/suicide scenario.

#14 Increasingly effective top tier life extension for the DC elite means we are doomed to be ruled by an ever more aged Methuselah class.

Term limits. Even 25-35 years would be better than what we have now. Before it's too late.

#15 Hey, with Harris, the Dems hit the cycle* - Harris was the first woman, the first Jamaican American, the first Asian American, the first Indian American, and the first African American attorney general in California.

Wikipedia

*Which I just learned this year, the cycle in baseball is a single, double, triple, and home run, all in the same game.

#16 Term limits need to be such that the DC ruling class doesn't have sufficient time to develop the corruption networks.

#17 If Kamala Harris is any indication, Di-Fi's eventual replacement will be even worse.

#18  So the committee to re-elect her raised more than $650,000 in the first three months of this year in a cue she is looking ahead. What happens to all that cash if she drops out?

She'll continue in the finest traditions of her socialist idols. Men such as Congolese henchmen Jean-Bedel Bokassa or Nigerian despots like Sani Abacha, and Gen. Abdulsalam Abubakar. We've got quite a lot to look forward to with Kamala.

#20 What happens to all that cash if she drops out?

They've written a law for themselves to convert that to their own money. That's how 'average' citizens go to Washington and retire as millionaires. It's part of a diverse portfolio.
