About Diane Feinstein...

Updated on February 18, 2013
Nope. She never said it.
Nope. She never said it.

There is a question which has been asked, that must be answered. This all important mystery is the following: "Is there a Senator less intelligent than Diane Feinstein?" As you can see, this is an issue of utmost importance. After all, didn't the good senator say that all gun owners should lay down their arms in response to the hunt for the crazed cop Christopher Dorner?

Let us take a look at what Mrs. Feinstein allegedly said: "When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.” Why the nerve! The lunacy! The sheer, absolute, mind boggling stupidity! Doesn't the woman realize that if we all just lay down our arms, every demented gunman in America, dead or alive, will come after us, we who are defenseless against such evil? Surly a more inept Senator does not exist, or has ever existed, than Diane Feinstein.

Why, here we have the evidence of the Senators utter cluelessness: Feinstein and Boxer Ask Californians to Lay Down Their Weapons ...

Oh, but wait. Wait just a minute! Did she really say the quote attributed to her? Is the article above not a satire?

With the question in mind ("Is there a Senator less intelligent than Diane Feinstein?," that is), I would like to pose the asker a few questions of my own. I feel that, in light of this most essential of dialogues, it is important to bear in mind these other questions:

  • Is Santa Claus real?
  • Where did my tooth go, and why is that dollar bill underneath my pillow?
  • Where was Barack Obama born?
  • Do cats have nine lives?
  • Is Batboy still alive?

These and other questions must be answered before any definite answer is given to the issue of Senator Diane Feinstein. In the meantime, we should probably note that the effects of bad satire tend to spiral out of control, particularly online. Unfortunately, it seems that so many people have lost the benefits of a sense of humor, so that satire, even weak and basically unfunny satire, cannot be recognized for what it is.

Disclaimer: This hub is meant to point out the ridiculousness of the question to which it responded. It is, therefor, just as satirical as the link to article above. I hope that this hub will be regarded as satire, and will not be taken too seriously by those who read it.

      Susan S. Manning,

      It's a sad situation all around, when people take whatever they read at face value, even at sites calling themselves "The Palookaville Post," though it does make for some good satire. Thank you for the comment.

      This story is still making the rounds, I saw it on a meme on Facebook, and of course everybody was eating it up. The Palookaville Post to which it is attributed no longer even exists, but I did manage to determine it was a satire site like The Onion. Most people don't want to hear that. Thanks for being a voice of reason!
