People's Republik of Kalifornia Senator Babs Boxer Insults A Soldier

During a Wednesday hearing before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Brigadier General Michael Walsh of the Army Corps of Engineers addressed Kalifornia Senator Barbara "Babs" Boxer as "ma'am." He responded to all members of the chimp council as "sir" or "ma'am" as most respectful folks, especially well-trained soldiers, would do. Babs took offense.

"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.

Not that Brigadier General Walsh or other members of the military worked hard to earn their positions. Being a Senator is hard work. I guess spending other people's money and taking away their supposedly inalienable rights is hard work. Is it any wonder most folks see members of Congress as arrogant and out-of-touch with real Americans? Video of Boxer's tantrum here.
