Sen. Boxer Instructs Brigadier General Not to Call Her ‘Ma’am’
Breitbart TV ^ | 06.18.09 | Andrew Breitbart

Posted on 06/18/2009 10:37:03 AM PDT by bootless

Sen. Barbara Boxer of California instructs Brigadier General Michael Walsh not to call her "ma'am," the sign of respect shown by members of the military towards non-military ... she wants to be called "Senator," because gosh darn it, she worked hard for that position.

No further comment necessary, but I'm looking forward to them anyway.

Words fail.

The comments on the Breitbart site are pretty illuminating.

I think he should have continued to call her Ma’am. It’s not inappropriate, and she can go suck an egg.

Her mail box is nearly always full, but when I write next it will be to Madam Boxer. Madam Box?
She’s never worked a day in her life.

As much as she may want to be, she is not a male. The proper term would be Senatrix.

it is times like this when i wish the senate had a space set aside for ordinary americans to watch the procedings and exercise their right to freedom of speech. this “peanut gallery” would be allowed to comment on all of the business at hand, ask questions of the senators and anyone testifying, and blow loud raspberries at any and all stupidity. can you imagine the response from said peanut gallery on that one..... singing “ i can call you betty and betty when you call me you caaalll mee al, call me al”

This arrogant, condescending no-talent really doesn’t even feel the lowly, comparatively pedestrian, “Senator” title does her justice.

What she really feels is appropriate is “Her Royal Highness, Her Majesty, Queen over All”.

Boxer? She divided and conquered Marin County, lied to them, and shut down Hamilton Air Force Base. And off she went.

Madame Boxer: Can you fly this plane, and land it?
General Walsh: I’m, I’m ... an Army general.
Surely you can’t be serious.
Madame Boxer: I am serious ... and don’t call me Shirley.

Of the many insulting things in our society, the fact that our military officers have to answer to ignorant twits like Boxer is one of the worst.

He should have said along the lines that the Judge in “A Few Good Men" said, “Yes Senator and you can address me as Brigadier General, I'm quite sure I worked hard for it and earned it”.

“How do such people rise to prominence?”

Through the sheer stupidity of the electorate.

She’s got a lot of chutzpa!! Fact of the matter the General has done far more to serve his country with little monetary gain which you can’t say for “M’ame” Boxer.

Or perhaps Dominatrix? The thought of her in a black slingshot outfit with a whip curdles the blood.

What I e-mailed to the *esteemed* senator:

Dear Senator Babs,

FYI, when someone in the military calls you "Ma'am", it's a sign of RESPECT. The title is not sexist, nor is it degrading. However, your demand to be called SENATOR was both elitist and demeaning to the Brigadier General. Please apologize to the Brigadier General NOW!

I hope you and all your tedious, elitist, and arrogant buddies get the boot during the next election. We the common folk, those with no particular rank or title, are sick of the daily displays of American Royalty. You don't work for us - you work for yourselves - with us footing the bill for your Hollywood style tantrums. Please get over yourself!

With all the respect due someone who DEMANDS to be called SENATOR,

****** (no title, just common rabble)
