Or maybe the month?
While voting in lock-step with her party that shows no respect for our military and their sacrifices, California Senator Barbara Boxer (D – obviously) demands plenty of respect from the men in uniform.
In case you forgot, Barbara Boxer is a senator.
The feisty California lawmaker felt the need to remind an Army brigadier general of that fact Tuesday during a hearing before her Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, where the military officer testifying had the apparent gall to call Boxer “ma’am.”
Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, was testifying on the Louisiana coastal restoration process in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He began to answer one of Boxer’s questions with “ma’am” when Boxer immediately cut him off.
“You know, do me a favor,” an irritated Boxer said. “Could say ‘senator’ instead of ‘ma’am?'”
“Yes, ma’am,” Walsh interjected.
“It’s just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I’d appreciate it, yes, thank you,” she said.
“Yes, senator,” he responded.
The article calls her “feisty.” I have a few other adjectives in mind. We salute you, Senator Boxer, for your arrogance and condescension. The fact that it was a member of our military made it even more noteworthy and endearing. What an ass!
I might keep this as a running feature. That reminds me – I’m overdue for another edition of “Oh Really?’ There’s plenty of material out there.
