WASHINGTON — Just a few weeks into the new congressional session, many are beginning to wonder aloud: "What's up with Barbara Boxer?"

The first week of the session, the California Democrat led the Senate challenge over certifying the Ohio presidential vote, citing irregularities.

In the end, she stood alone against certification, with 74 of her colleagues — including Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and 33 other Democrats — favoring the count.

Last week, Boxer was all over Condoleezza Rice at her confirmation hearing to be President Bush's new secretary of state. Boxer all but called Rice a liar over her statements leading up to the war in Iraq as Bush's national security adviser.

Full story . . .

California Democrats have a tremendous appetite for what Boxer has to offer on the national stage.

RATS on parade...

she's busy tearing at Republicans, lobbying for a Vietnam disaster in Iraq, and making Hillary look reasonable.

Let's hear Barbara Boxer answer questions under oath about the countless allegations made against her relatives by marriage, the Clintons. Then, we will all see her low regard for truth.

Barara Boxer isn't qualified to pick up dog droppings in Condi Rice's yard.

We can thank the California Republican Party, such as it is, for not running a viable candidate opposite Boxer when we had a primo opportunity. The National Republican Party seems to have forfeited our state also, but we're here! We delivered over 5 million votes for George W. Bush, even though he made NOT ONE public campaign appearance. His Dad was far more gracious than that . . .

Now, GWB's nominee is being attacked by Boxer and Her Gang, so he should not be upset about it.

P.S. Boxer's victim whine reminds me of Patty Schroeder (D-CO) busting into tears during one of her campaigns.

Whats up with her is that she was just reelected and she is feeling very comfortable doing whatever she damn well pleases. Her constituents be damned...

Yes, doesn't she remind you of that "lawmaker" from NJ that's in jail now? What was his name? C'mon, we need a side-by-side.

Let's hear Barbara Boxer answer questions under oath about...

What she knows of her son's dealings while representing Indian gaming in CA? Why she did not publicly recuse herself while her son represented them and the Davis legislation to legalize all here?

Seeing her under oath would be very nice, however lying under oath is not against liberal convictions.

For the same reason he didn't attend the NAACP convention; that's why.

Babs can spew all she wants because she knows she's got the safest seat in the Senate. We're just seeing the "real deal", since she no longer needs to worry about reelection.

Boxer thinks that just because she was just reelected that she can make a total ass out of herself for the next 6 years...well she may be in for a reeeeel rude awakening!

We may not be able to recall the clown but each house of Congress has the power to expel members and if a member has committed acts that could lead to a recall, the acts could just as easily lead to expulsion. It is likely that a vote of no confidence from a state's electorate would go a long way in influencing an expulsion vote.

Maybe more than that. I really think this woman has a serious mental problem.

Since we are all still in the election mode, this may be easy to attribute to something else, but there is no question in my mind that something is very wrong with Ms. Boxer and that she needs help.

Babs is trying to position herself as the leader of the frothy left. While Hilary is trying to position herself as the leader of the moderate left.

I'm starting to believe that thesis that Babs and Hitlery are playing good cop, bad cop. Hillary will look absolutely moderate next to Babs the Bi***.........they are so easy to figure out. All you have to do is have a few drinks, lose some IQ points and hate everything and you become one

making Hillary look reasonable.

My take, as well. She is testing the waters.

An all female ticket in 2008? ...... not likely, but you never know.

Bruce Cain, head of the Institute for Government Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, said California Democrats have a tremendous appetite for what Boxer has to offer on the national stage.

"There are a lot of Democrats who think Ohio was a fraud," he said.

That may be, but she is very sick, IMHO. That alone takes her out of the target practice.

Who in the world is going to help that woman? I am reminded of the movie, "Network" every time I see her lately. Ms. Boxer's rantings and actions are being idolized by the deluded Left, so I doubt that they will stop her.

I looked very closely at that picture of Ms. Boxer crying at the press conference after she held up the electoral process. There is something very wrong with that poor woman.
