Barbara Boxer: Call Me ‘Senator’

Lest we forget she called Condi Rice 'ma'am!

Lest we forget she called Condi Rice 'ma'am!

The unmitigated gall of some people! Is there anything worse than a person who has perceived power but actually thinks that that power is legitimate? The only explanation we can possibly think of is that these people must feel so inadequate that they need to belittle someone in order for themselves to feel better.

This is precisely the point as we see it with ‘Senator’ Barbara Boxer (D-CA) who, with her vile mouth spewing acid-like hate toward Brigadier General Michael Walsh. No doubt Senator Boxer is not happy with her Chairpersonship whilst other more lofty and media centered committee’s are grabbing all the press.

 

“Could you say ‘senator’ instead of ‘ma’am? ‘It’s just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title. I’d appreciate it.”

…Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to Brigadier General Michael Walsh during Senate hearing Tuesday, when the general repeatedly said, “Yes, ma’am,” and “No, ma’am,” when answering Boxer’s questions at hearing she chaired on New Orleans’ levee system.

We kid you not…everyone we’ve spoken to or heard from has had nothing but harsh words for Barbara Boxer. I understand that this could be hard to understand unless one actually saw the exchange. It was in the manner that Boxer [looking like the ‘bitch’ in the Alien films] void of any respect, decorum, or professionalism so rudely stated her request to B. Gen. Walsh.

Perhaps unbeknownst to Boxer, achieving the rank of ‘General’ in the military services is no easy feat; moreover, the politically correct language for him to be addressing her is ma’am. So in the event you are frustrated by your committee, annoyed at the failure of the bureaucracy and red tape the Congress – of which you are a member — has created enough obstacles to the improvements on the levee systems in New Orleans, Louisiana.

That situation in and of itself does not give you the right to launch on General Walsh, caprice?

Now for the lighter side of politics…what is up with these democrats who call themselves ‘moderates’? As we’ve written before anything done in a hurry has about a 90% failure rate. At the speed that this joke of a “American Reinvestment and Recovery Act” a.k.a. stimulus package, TARP, and ‘let’s save the world…before we’ve even written the Bill, hell, let’s just put that baby in the hands of those bonus mongering chief executives!’

  1. Yay Boxer, criticizing a general when he does something right. I wish you would take a lesson from his humility: even when show contempt for him, interupting him just to assert yourself and protect your ego from his perfectly respectful remarks, he complied nicely. And I thank him for his example of humility.

    • Hey, thanks for the comment!

      We couldn’t agree with you more! We’ll even raise you one….have you noticed how many people are losing their jobs and careers for doing the right thing?

      As for us, we think it is simply pathetic!
