Sen. Diane Feinstein just made a ridiculous statement. She said too much testosterone in the U.S. Senate is the cause of the recent problems getting the bill passed to prevent the fiscal cliff disaster.
Has she not looked around at her colleagues? One senator is 80 years old; many are in their 70s and 60s. Collectively, how much testosterone could all these old guys have?
Too much senatorial testosterone obviously is not the problem.
Feinstein says people with estrogen would be better at running the government. So, what is Feinstein doing in the Senate? She is in her late 70s, an age well-known for having practically no estrogen. The people with high levels of estrogen are young women who, unfortunately often suffer from PMS.
I’ve never understood why the electorate continues re-electing old people to run the government.
My solution to this problem is simple: term limits.
