Barbara Boxer: Call me 'Senator'
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) didn't like a Brigadier General calling her "ma'am" at a Congressional hearing yesterday.
"Do me a favor," she said, "could say 'senator' instead of 'ma'am?' It's just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I'd appreciate it, yes, thank you."
Click on the title for the video. The tone in her voice really says it all...... the bare transcript does not convey the contempt she had for the General...... she hates the military! She has a reputation for a prickly and petty personality. Hopefully we can say ex Senator some day!
