Dianne’s Hubris

Last week Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a liberal from California, told the media she felt a special responsibility, as the only woman on the Judiciary Committee, to represent America’s 145 million women in the John Roberts confirmation hearings. Here are a few questions: (1) Does this mean all women (of whatever age) must support Roe v. Wade? (2) Where does Feinstein stand on other issues that directly affect women (such as low taxes so families can have a single breadwinner and women can stay home with their kids)? (3) Does Feinstein not represent the men? (4) Should we elect women senators to represent the fairer sex and men senators to represent men? (5) Or should we simply not take Feinstein seriously?
