"Jumped-Up Refugee From A Zoning Board"
The title of this post comes from a description of Sen. Dianne Feinsten (D-CA) made by Tam in a post back in February. I loved it then and I especially love it now that DiFi is all butt hurt over the eloquent thrashing she took from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday.
Ted Cruz asked DiFi whether she thought Congress could likewise limit the right of the people under the 1st and 4th Amendments as she is seeking to do with her Assault Weapons Ban of 2012. As you can see in the video below, DiFi gets all huffy about it. Three male Democrats also have to jump in because it seems that they are worried that a woman can't make a strong enough argument or so it would seem.
After the committee business meeting, DiFi had to run to CNN's Wolf Blitzer to wrap the mantle of victimhood across her shoulders. She said, "Well, I just felt patronized. I felt he was somewhat arrogant about it." CNN is still playing the clip below of DiFi whining about her treatment as I saw just this morning on TV in a local McDonalds.
Did DiFin really say she put her fingers in the wounds of George Moscone and Harvey Milk? Hmnm. I wonder when DiFi will get around to telling people that fellow Supervisor Dan White didn't use an AR or an AK or even an FN-FAL to murder them. No, Dan White used a S&W Model 10 in .38 Special - a plain old everyday revolver then used by police forces around the country.
20 years in the Senate and 9 years as the accidental mayor of San Francisco still doesn't make one a expert on Constitutional matters. Nor does it seem to engender any real respect for it either. She is, and will always remain, what Tam described her as - a meddling harpy and a jumped-up refugee from a zoning board.
