Former Congressman John Dingell is a real Gem.

He says get rid of the U.S. Senate and the Electoral College system !!!

This guy was in the House for almost 60 years himself.

He also says the "Deep State" is just a conspiracy (even though he was part of it !! 😆)

The claim (and whine) is that States with low populations have an equal say in government !! 😀

Proof that Democrats want it their way and only "their way".



John Dingell, Longest-Serving Rep in History, Calls for Abolition of Senate, Electoral College

John Dingell, a former Michigan Democratic congressman who served nearly 60 years in office, wrote Tuesday that the Senate and electoral college should be abolished because of the "disproportionate influence" they award to smaller and less-populated states.

Dingell, whose wife Debbie now holds his Detroit-Ann Arbor seat, added that the "worst" reason for the decline of American politics is the "Trumpist mindset."

"These jackasses who see deep state conspiracies in every part of government are the minority of a minority," he wrote in "The Atlantic."


"Let's hope these jerks don't just take over everything"

I can't see this dude's name without laughing...

His ideas are just as asinine as his name.

I think we should all take advice from a 92 year old ex congressman from MI.....not!


Ugh. The lack of logic in these people who are or were in charge is despicable. A little research shows he has quite a few skeletons in his closet.


Eta: looks like he's making all kinds of comments on twitter. I think a lot of it is to promote his new book "The Dean"



www.harpercollins.com...

John David Dingell, the longest serving United States’ Congressman in history, and one of the House's most powerful chairmen, offers a unique, unforgettable, and refreshingly candid behind-the-scenes account of government and politics over the past eighty years.

Democrat John David Dingell served in the U.S. House of Representatives for fifty-nine consecutive years, from December 13, 1955 to January 3, 2015—the longest tenure of anyone in Congressional history. The son of a Congressman, Dingell worked in his father’s office from childhood and became a house page in 1938, when he was just eleven years old. Retiring from Congress at eighty-nine, he has witnessed some of the most significant events that have shaped our nation and the world.

In The Dean, Dingell looks back at his life at the center of American government and considers the currents that have reshaped our Congress and America itself, from his childhood memories of wartime Washington during the FDR administration, through the Reagan Revolution, to the election of the first black president, Barack Obama.

Rife with a wisdom that literally only Dingell can possess, The Dean is the inspiring story of some of the greatest congressional achievements, of which Dingell was an integral part, and of the tough fights that made them possible. Dingell offers a persuasive defense for government, explaining how it once worked honorably and well—in defeating Hitler, sending us to the moon, ending segregation, and providing for the common good of all our citizens. He argues that to secure our future and continue our progress, we must work together once again—lessons desperately needed today.

Doofus Dingell needs to be put out to pasture.
Deranged Dems want to change everything so they have the upper hand.

Dingell is Demented. The family comes from a very polluted (heavy metal in the water) section of metro Detroit. Lots of people in that area aren't "right".

Seems like he should be calling for term limits.

That would be cool.

Just goes to show that you don't necessarily grow wise with age.

I bet he argues with the squirrels in his backyard.

ORLY?

I seriously thought he was dead.
Looks like he's only gone senile!!!

Why the hell would anyone want to give an advantage to densely populated states, over other areas of the country.

Well, I'm under 70, so my estimation of wheel is commendable.

Hey, I'm like Joe Biden, I may be old but I'm busy trolling middle school girls sports at 6.

It's all about being young at heart.

What a moronic ass!!! The only reason the House exists is as a compromise for allowing the Electoral College. If we eliminate the EC, then it is the House that should be eliminated, not the Senate. There is a reason the American system was based on Romance style government, one in which the Senate ensured equal representation for each Roman Consul. The stupid jackass hates Republicans so much he's calling for the death of the Republic. Toss his ass out for idiocy and being clearly unfit for office.

How many of you actually read his article in the Atlantic?

Rather just make fun of how damn old he is without reading it?

It's fairly obvious from my statement on him seeking the death of the Republic, as his idea effectively nukes what makes the US system a republic, that I read the article. He's a dangerous imbecile.
