Feinstein should be fined

Today in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, John Roberts had to endure hours of windbags, blowhards and the self important members speaking aimlessly about whatever their politics dictate. In what must be one of the most astonishingly stupid statements of all time, Dianne Feinstein belched this nugget, "For me, one of the most important issues that needs to be addressed by Judge Roberts is the constitutional right to privacy. ... It would be very difficult for me to vote to confirm someone to the Supreme Court whom I knew would overturn Roe v. Wade."
So in other words Senator Feinstein wants Judge (soon to be Chief Justice) Roberts to respect a person's privacy while at the same time disregarding his own, so she can use his own right to privacy against him. This strikes me as patently stupid. Of course, people keep electing her, so who is the dumber? There should be a new rule enacted in order to be an elected official: Every idiotic comment you make will incur a thousand dollar fine. Freedom of speech is not the same as Freedom of stupidity.
