These liberals are so disrespectful when it comes to the military. Senator Boxer that one star General worked very hard to obtain that rank, you owe him some respect and some gratitude.
All this little exchange does is prove that Barbara Boxer is a two bit moron that shouldn't be talking to a man of honor like that. He hair brian by calling you 'ma'am he was trying talk respectfully but you just proved to be a petty.
At a sometimes contentious Capitol Hill hearing Tuesday, Senate Environment and Public Works Committee chairwoman, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), had a request for Army Corps of Engineers division leader, Brigadier General Michael Walsh.
During a terse exchange, as Boxer pressed Walsh on why the levees in New Orleans are still not repaired nearly four years after Hurricane Katrina, she said to Walsh:
"Could you say 'senator' instead of 'ma'am? It's just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title. I'd appreciate it."
The general's response? "Yes, Senator."
The blogosphere exploded with reaction following the senator's comments, with some arguing the senator deserves to be addressed by the title she's earned through three Senate elections, and others saying it's the general who deserves a little more respect. [politics daily]
