Hmmmm... sounds like Cruz is the Constitutional Professor with Tenure, and Feinstein *IS* a sixth grader after all!

“Oh she hasn’t had time for that, much too busy trying to ban scary scary looking guns!”

But she and fourth hubbie “Tricky Dickie Blum” have managed to steal the taxpayers blind.

BAWWWWAA!

...she stood on the floor and implored them, “Show some guts.”

And 60 of them did! At least she can take comfort in that her gun control amendment is the only one to get 60 votes! Hehehehehehehe

Anytime freedom wins, a demon loses its wings.

Suck it up, DiFi. The people, through their representatives, spoke.

She is old and shop worn. The last effort to sell the tired old crap was a failure. She can now shuffle off to her grave in disgraceful failure
