Barbara Boxer – Call Me Mrs. Senator

Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh was testifying before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and, as is the military custom when addressing a superior officer, or even a lady, addressed Boxer as Ma’am. Boxer immediately dressed him down and told him to call her “Senator” as she had worked long and hard to gain that title.

We are taught to use “Sir” or “Ma’am” to show respect, which is what General Walsh was doing.

I wonder if the General had the urge to tell Boxer to please address him as “General” as he had worked a lot longer than a campaign season to gain that title.

The only lack of respect in that room was on display by the Senator.

  1. Military personnel are taught to address elected officials as either by their title or by sir or ma'am. The General was right to use maam, and Boxer was within her right to express her preference to be addressed as Senator. However, in insisting on being addressed as senator, Boxer appears shallow and petty.

    Next election, the citizens should present Boxer with a new title: Ex-senator.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
