Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) won’t be up for re-election until 2024, but she has seemingly already filed paperwork indicating she might run again.The 87-year-old U.S. Democrat from California filed the initial re-election paperwork with the Federal Election Commission last week, L.A. Magazine reported. A Feinstein rep reached out to L.A. Magazine to clarify what the FEC filings allegedly mean. “To be clear, Senator Feinstein has had a campaign committee since she took office, as all senators must. In order to keep this account active, the senator has to maintain filings with the FEC. Yesterday’s filings merely reflected an updated address,”

My mother is 87, so I know of what I speak. Dianne is not doing her own paperwork! Dianne probably needs assistance in attaching a file to an email. Other people are doing her senatorial job, as they are Biden's presidential job.

Feinstein, 87, should do something more useful with her life before it's too late. Take up SCUBA diving or learn to code. Or just sit in her kitchen and count her Renminbi.

It will be interesting when feinstein meets the man upstairs... how will she explain away her callous regard for her fellow human beings... especially the poor unborn babies... her lying and stealing and disregard for what's "right"... must weigh heavily on her mind at night when she's alone...as to her running again... not happening... the swamp party in DC has seen she is compromised... the registration is merely an attempt to hold on to the staffers who will get paid... now that nervous nancy has bailed out California...

These government-teat suckers like Feinstein, Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Romney and the dozens of others in Washington only know how to do one thing in life, stay in the government and profit from it in any way they can. Eventually they die, like Fat Teddy, Arlen Specter, Robert Byrd, John Murtha, John McCain, etc. but there are always more willing to keep their chairs warm for another lifetime. Don't blame Feinstein, it's all that she knows, blame the stupid voters who vote time after time for the same moron because they recognize a name.

Should you ever wonder that being in Congress --- and the Senate in particular --- is the greatest gig in the world look no further than the addictive nature of the power! As of January 18, 2021, 5 senators are in their 80s, 18 are in their 70s, 32 are in their 60s, 30 are in their 50s, 14 are in their 40s, and 1 is in his 30s. Imagine that. And the House isn't much better. Now everyone wants to grow old like Bob Hope --- playing golf with Presidents while in his late 90's and still doing stand-up comedy at 99! But most of us will not be so blessed. Old Diane is not a robust 87 by any stretch ... but she just can't give it up and walk away. Tells you something.

You know, I think this makes perfect sense. She's a Democrat. And Democrats perfected the art of dead people voting, so the next step is to have dead people run. Then the dead voters and can vote for the dead candidate. You gotta hand it to them. There is a symmetry to it.
