Right-Wing Pundits Go Nuts Over 20-Year-Old Feinstein Hand Notes

Posted By on Mon, Feb 15, 2010 at 1:11 PM

This ya gotta love. Conservative commentators are squealing with delight over a video Fox News managed to unearth that reveals California's Sen. Dianne Feinstein scrawled a note on her hand during a 1990 debate with former Republican Gov. Pete Wilson. Calbuzz reports that Feinstein's preferred bons mots were "growth, education, choice." Compare that to the ever-batty Sarah Palin's palm notes at a recent Tea Party conference -- "energy, budget tax cuts, lift American spirits" -- and you get a rather succinct picture of these two public figures' stated priorities.

But the all-sinister-seeming footage uncovered by Fox prompts another question: Does Feinstein, whose hand appears highlighted in an eerie orb of light, have the ability to shoot electricity from her fingertips?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
