Why don’t we just address her as “bitch”?
Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, was testifying on the Louisiana coastal restoration process in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He began to answer one of Boxer’s questions with “ma’am” when Boxer immediately cut him off.
“You know, do me a favor,” an irritated Boxer said. “Could say ‘senator’ instead of ‘ma’am?'”
“Yes, ma’am,” Walsh interjected.
“It’s just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I’d appreciate it, yes, thank you,” she said.
“Yes, senator,” he responded.
This boorish, egotistical assclown has been on a power trip for awhile. It’s not the first time she’s pulled this kind of shit. Since the military chain of command does not include Senators, he should have requested that she address him as ‘Brigadier General Walsh’.
Given her propensity for being a petty crapweasel, she doesn’t even deserve the ‘Ma’am’ designation.

Boxer is a snotty scrunt who spent most of her career as a self-serving politician, lying her way into office, spending other people’s money, and generally being a squalling she-ass. BG Walsh dedicated his life to serving his country as a Soldier. While she enjoys basking in the glow of her San Francisco fruitbat constituents, BG Walsh has helped rebuild the Iraq and New Orleans infrastructure.
The title Boxer earned ain’t “Senator”.

Exactly! This woman does not deserve the respect paid to her by the General. Her sense of entitlement is sickening. Who in the heck keeps voting for her?
The ‘good’ people of California (San Fransisco in particular) are the ones that keep putting her back in office.
My father was a General in the US Army. He was addressed always as General Terry…by his military peers and civilians. Barbara Boxer received the usual consideration and respect paid to women by the military, “Ma’am”.
Boxer is rude and disrespectful and her lack of self esteem is apparent. She faced an accomplished man and felt compelled to challenge him…she’s a disgrace!
