Actress and liberal activist Jane Fonda is joining Sen. Barbara Boxer Saturday at a fundraiser to help the California Democrats reelection and local Republicans are scrambling to do a last-minute protest.
The Republican Party of Los Angeles County sent out an urgent email Saturday morning asking supporters to gather for a protest that afternoon outside Boxers fundraiser along the famed Sunset Boulevard.
The 6 p.m. fundraiser called "Keep Change Alive" is also hosted by actors Tobey Maguire and Alyssa Milano. Fonda announced on her Facebook and Twitter accounts that she would be there to support Boxer.
Events during this campaign season are going to move quickly, according to the email sent from Gary Aminoff, first vice chairman of the local GOP affiliate. We need to be able to respond quickly."
Aminoff asks protesters to bring American flags and spend an hour or so letting Barbara Dont call me Maam Boxer know that she has some real opposition this year.
He is referring to Boxers scolding of Brigadier General Michael Walsh at a hearing in June of last year to respect her senatorial status.
You know, do me a favor, could you say senator instead of maam? she asked Walsh, after he had been referring to male members of her Environment and Public Works panel as sir and had just referred to Boxer as maam. Walsh quickly obliged but conservative activists have had a field day targeting Boxers request ever since.
Aminoff dutifully ties together Boxers interpretation of the proper respect shown by military brass to Fondas status as one of the more well-known celebrity protesters of the Vietnam War.
Lets let Barbara and Hanoi Jane know it is time for Boxer to retire, urges Aminoff.
A recent Field Poll showed Boxer with a narrow lead, 47 percent to 44 percent, over Republican challenger Carly Fiorina. While this is a slight gain since March for Boxer, the poll also showed disapproval of her job performance has gone up this year.
I just lost a LOT of respect for Tobey McQuire. But Id forgive Alyssa IF she really tried to make it up to me.
Boxer invited Hanoi Jane? Just another good reason to show up and protest! ;-)
Carly Fiorina should look them both in the eye and say “I’ll clean your clocks.”
Could backfire. The electorate apparently doesn't like the change that's been initiated, so I suspect they don't want to see it kept alive.
Ha ha, good one.
Good point, many people are fed up with their change.
Oh, yes, this will really convince ME to vote for BB. Yes, indeedy. And no one under 60 will even know who Jane Fonda is. Her time is definitely OVER.
She is clearly going after the military vote .
Ha, I bet that’s it. Surely the Vietnam Vets will work for Babs now that Jane Fonda’s signed on.
You bet, her time is definitely over.
Anyone in the military and most anyone connected to them will know who Hanoi Jane is, we haven’t forgotten that traitor.
Cows of a feather.
Any word on how much urine is in the depository and waiting to be poured over Jane’s grave?If she lives too much longer they’re going to need tanker trucks to make the delivery.
Two anti-American kooks. I hope they both move to France ... and then get caught in a Muslim riot there.
Too bad Toby has shown his true colors.
He did a good job in ‘Seabiscuit”.
kerry will, he served in nam don’t ya know
Just ask the Vietnamese Army.
