Best Video: "Call me Senator": Funniest political Ad of 2010?
The Week ^ | Oct. 25, 2010

Posted on 10/26/2010 3:00:55 AM PDT by T.L.Sink

This satirical ad pilliories the now-infamous moment in June, 2009 when Boxer asked an Army brigadier to call her "Senator" and not "Ma'am" during a committee hearing: it concludes with her gleefully signing a $900 billion stimulus bill. [Boxer is so full of herself that she makes a self-caricature of herself for an ad ridiculing her pretensions and self-importance]

It’s bad enough if an egotist has some natural gifts, talent and ability. But Boxer is an egotist with no ability.

The best I can remember, it wasn’t a courteous sort of “asking” that Ma’am Senator did to the General. I sort of recall a snotty lacing up that she did to him. It was obvious that the man was being courteous, or trying to be courteous, to her.

Dems still never learn that they've proved you don't have to work hard to get it. Just always tell the left what they want to hear and any ahole can be Senator or President. Franken and Obama are the most recent proof. I bet they hope all of us from the respect is earned school of thinking die off soon.

Nick Searcy (”Justified”) plays the general; Ed Ames (”Daniel Boone”) is the Indian chief; Jack Scalia (”Dallas”) plays the aide to Boxer, and Clint Howard-—Ron’s brother-—is the other senator.

Zucker has always been a genius.

Boxer has always been an arrogant (expletive deleted).

That’s right and “ma’am” is a traditional form of military courtesy when addressing a woman. In fact, this was a normal and accepted way of addressing the Queen of England. But Boxer was all wrapped up in herself and saw this as a slight to “exalted” position!

Liberal language control permeates American society down all the way to and through Free Republic. Until control of the language and actual free speech is regained, the war with the liberals is lost.

Care to elaborate on the “language control” at FR?

I know there’s some fear of telling too much truth, or disseminating too much information, because the PC police WILL use the power of the force of law to punish this site’s owner.

The level of enforcement varies, though.

One of the best parts of ridiculing the arrogance of leftists is that it further enrages them. They are NOT to be the objects of ridicule, because they are inherently superior.
The second best part is showing We the People what these arrogant a-holes are made of.
The third best part is making their supporters defend the arrogance.

I was wondering that too. He also plays a cameo in Arrested Development that sort of makes fun of tree sitters. I wonder...

Clint Howard recently came out as a conservative. He said that studios weren’t exactly beating his door down, and this revelation isn’t going to stop him from getting the kinds of parts he does get called for.

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which an unskilled person makes poor decisions and reaches erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes.[1] The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence: because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."
