At PD we could think of no one whom deserved a Memory Lane Monday segment more than Helen Thomas’ kid sister, California Senator Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein, or as we call her Fräulein Feinstein.
Back in the news since Sandy-Hook opportunity struck, the bosom buddy of Barbra Boxer, with that vast wealth that’s doubled and some while in the service of her country, Fräulein Feinstein is bound to have a few interesting things to say.
In 1995 (yes, since 1992 she’s been a more permanent fixture in the Senate than that garish carpeting) during a seat down interview with 60 Minutes discussing her failure at passing a ban on semi-automatic weapons, Fräulein Feinstein explained the following:
“If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them—Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.”
Hear that, Mr. and Mrs. America?! All she wants for Christmas are your guns, and some of her original teeth.
