    how do you all feel about having all these nursing home candidates running for president or taking up positions of power ?

    this is a bit of a dig about baby boomers. i just dont understand why so many of these old codgers are still hanging around because if they worked in any other field they would have been turfed and retired long ago.

    dont you americans find it funny you have an old dottery 78 year old running for the democrats. sanders is nearly 90.

    even though cortez was recruited from an asylum atleast she wasnt born in 40s-50s.

    perhaps millenials should be running the show ?

    I prefer politicians to be old and boring. I'm getting tired of these politicians who want to be celebrities. Serve the people and shut your mouth.

    Dunno if she's "boring" though, was front and center of the Kavanaugh debacle a few months ago. Orrin Hatch finally decided to call it quits at her age last year, was first elected in 1976. I think he also technically has the distinction of being the longest serving Republican Senator in US history; Strom Thurmond started as a Democrat.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/...-takes-first-step-toward-2024-re-election-bid

    Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., fresh off a re-election win at age 85, has already filed paperwork to allow her to raise funds ahead of a potential tilt at another term in 2024 when she'll be 91.

    Feinstein, who will be a fifth-term incumbent in the next Congress, applied to change her campaign committee's name to "Feinstein for Senate 2024," according to documents lodged with the Federal Election Committee on Monday. Spokespeople for her Senate office and her campaign did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner's requests for comment.


    The five-term senator won re-election to her U.S. senate seat in the state of California in November. She edged out a 10-point win over her more progressive challenger, Kevin de Leon, even though California Democrats declined to endorse her 2018 bid.

    It’s an embarrassment that we’re run by a nursing home, yes.

    Normally I take every chance I can get to dig on the Millennitards, so I suppose it's only fair that put the shoe on the other foot in this thread:

    Unless being older makes you more corrupt, I don't think age is my biggest concern.

    Boomers were taught to trust what you were told by Walter Cronkite.

    Gen X were told to question what the people on the TV were telling you.

    Now, we just seek out news that we agree with.

    Old people are supposed to have wisdomz and shit.

    If only it were true, instead they're just bitter and smell funny.

    Personally I don't like how the Democrats and the left hype up "dah youth!" but maybe you guys have a point, maybe some of these other cunts are a bit too old to be running things.

    Hah, good luck with that.

    Sanders is as real as it gets in DC. Are you Bernie or Bust? @xcvbn said he's campaigning for Trump if Bernie doesn't get - or is fucked out of - the nomination, something like that. I'm pretty sure @VivaRevolution is in the same boat, particularly considering gender politics make him want to become a white nationalist and he's been all over these sort of alternative right wing news sources lately, supporting the wall, etc.
