Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to a General at a hearing yesterday: "Do me a favor," she said. "Could say senator instead of Ma'am It's just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I'd appreciate it, thank you."

What a bitch.
“ma’am” is too gender specific for her.
Yes Sir, Mam.
I would have refused.
But it’s ok to refer to him as “Mr. Bush” instead of President Bush.
Stupid broad with a big chip on her shoulder.
You read my mind.
LOL - beat me to it.
How hard did she really work? Please!
How come she didn’t say “General, could you do me a favor?”
It was just “Do me a favor...”
Stupid. Generals call other Generals “sir” and “ma’am.” Boxer, however, will have her baby-sitter calling her “Senator” twenty years after she retires to a nursing home.
” I worked so hard to get it...”
The general should have said, “But senator, I don’t remember you from any of the base bars!”
My immediate response was “what a DUMB bitch” - Lordy do I hate Libs.....”Ma’am” is a sign of respect - “Senator” is a slur these days.....bwaaaaaaaaaaaa
no problem... i understand running for senate was grueling. then again, obtaining brigadier general was no cake walk.
since we are being formal, i’ll call you senator boxer... while you refer to me as Brigadier General Michael Walsh
I worked so hard to get that title
Can you say “Public Servant” ?????
Why is a General talking to her. She hates the military and isn’t smart enough to understand what he was telling her, not to mention that like other libs she is always right.
A king could have you killed for that response. A senator can suck ass.
