Senior Citizen of the Silent Generation Seeks 20th Term

Most of the people in charge of the US are too old to function. Nancy Pelosi announced that she plans to seek re-election to the House of Representative in 2024. This would be Pelosi’s TWENTIETH term. The top insider trader in the nation has done absolutely nothing during her time in politics. So why should she be allowed to run again?

“Now more than ever our City needs us to advance San Francisco values and further our recovery. Our country needs America to show the world that our flag is still there, with liberty and justice for ALL. That is why I am running for reelection — and respectfully ask for your vote,” Pelosi posted on X. The city has become uninhabitable under Democrat control and Pelosi herself asked staff to work from home, citing safety concerns. There are eight members of Congress who are actually older than Pelosi. Surprisingly, she is expected to win.

Dianne Feinstein is 90 years old and barely alive. She remains in the Senate despite granting her daughter legal power of attorney. Feinstein does not trust herself to manage her own finances, but she is willing to cling to power/life and feels fit to vote on the most important decisions the leading global economy. She even sued the trustees of her late husband’s estate for elder abuse for withholding finances. But those in power would rather die in politics than relinquish power. It is actually part of the strategy.

Hillary Clinton told Time that she does not think Diane Feinstein should resign simply because her seat could go to a Republican. “Here’s the dilemma: the Republicans will not agree to add someone else to the Judiciary Committee if she retires,” Clinton admitted. “I want you to think about how crummy that is. I don’t know in her heart about whether she really would or wouldn’t, but right now, she can’t. Because if we’re going to get judges confirmed, which is one of the most important continuing obligations that we have, then we cannot afford to have her seat vacant.” This came after Feinstein took a three-month leave due to her failing health.

Taking it a step forward, Clinton thinks the Republicans should swap out the elderly as an act of kindness. “If Republicans were to say and do the decent thing and say, well this woman was gravely ill, she had just lost her husband to cancer… of course we will let you fill this position if she retires. But they won’t say that. So what are we supposed to do? All these people pushing her to retire: fine, we get no more judges? I don’t think that’s a good tradeoff.” A good tradeoff?

And yet, Clinton was quick to question Biden’s age ahead of the election. Her dream of sitting in the Oval Office without her husband will never die. These politicians do not have the best interest of the people at heart. It is all a big petty game that the people always lose.
