Barbara Boxer Writes Capitalist Observer a Letter in Response

After making this little diddy I wrote Barbara Boxer a letter to criticize her for her behavior.

She actually responded to me (or at least one of her minions probably did):

"Dear Capitalist Observer:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the recent Senate hearing with Brigadier General Michael Walsh. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.

Shortly after the hearing, I called General Walsh, and we had a friendly and productive conversation. We expressed our respect for one another and our determination to work together to protect our nation and communities from natural disasters.

Thank you again for writing to me. Please feel free to contact me in the future about this or any other issue of concern to you.

Barbara Boxer
United States Senator"

As if the fact that the General was gracious to her excuses her poor performance in the slightest. I don't like to make these blanket comments...but she is truely the biggest idiot in the senate...she's almost Kucinich-like.


  1. Although I lean right of center, I have to agree with the senator: she earned the title and deserves the respect. I don't necessarily think she had to outright tell him, but let's face it, a male senator would have never been called anything but Senator--not mister, sir, or anything other than his title by office.

    Senator Boxer may hold very liberal viewpoints, but on this topic we should give her a break.


  2. I watched the clip three times and decided she was arrogant. It was almost as if she was trying to be-little him. I also watched a few clips where she addressed other Senators and even V.P. Presidential candidates with first name basis.

    What's good for the Goose is good for the Gander.
