There is about as much chance of the egotistical, far left wing, Anti-US Military graduate of Brooklyn College. Barbara Boxer apologizing to General Walsjh as there is of Ahmadminejad apologizing to Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The incidents reported here are rather trivial and not of much consequence. However they do - in my opinion - illustrate some salient characteristics of the esteemed senator from California.
She appears to be a classic case of an overcompensating short person. Add to that an inflated sense of self-importance and a strong vindictive streak and you have a rather thoroughly obnoxious character. A few years ago I witnessed more of this behavior in a restaurant in Marin County where we were (by chance) seated just a table away from the senator and her companion. A well-dressen woman walked up to her table, and expressed her admiration for the senator and apparently wanted to shake her hand or something like that. Up until that point I hadn't paid much attention, but very quickly the senator loudly complained that she was at dinner and did not want such uninvited intrusions and demanded to be left alone. The woman, crestfallen and very embarrased, beat a hasty retreat. Boxer then loudly summoned the headwaiter and chided him for allowing such an intrusion, creating an equally big distraction for all the other diners around her. A real eye-roller !
Quote:Parados is tossing out a red herring. The issue is not whether H20 misstated the Chain of Command. Parados is evidently desperate to get away from the FACT that Boxer is a hypocrite and a far left wing liberal.
genoves is wrong again, as usual. It's not Parados who is tossing out the red herring but, rather, genoves himself. The rant which ensues, listing every negative thing that genoves can think of in regards to Boxer, has exactly zero to do with the subject of the thread. The thread is about whether Ms. Boxer should apologize for having corrected a general officer's use of the honorific "ma'am." Even if we were to stipulate that Boxer is "a hypocrite and far left wing liberal," that stipulation would have no bearing whatever on the subject at hand.
Genoves is very good at blowing smoke rings and tossing out red herrings to totally obfuscate the subject at hand. And he actually believes that through these sleight-of-hand tactics he, somehow, has won an argument. Pathetic.
It relates to nothing except George OB1's statement. If you have a problem with his statememt.Please address George directly!
Parados must be a real fan of Boxer's. I note his rudeness when he attempts to intimdate H2O by calling him "squirt". I counseled H2O to give it right back to Parados. The tragedy here is that no one will remember that Parados has called H2O squirt many many times hoping that H2O would retreat from the scene.
If and when H2O returns Parados' insult in kind, the left wing will of course, begin to scream-AD Hominem, Ad Hominem--without, of course, letting other posters know that Parados struck the first blow!

It is not a dead horse. It is vital that we keep the picture of the intolerant almost fascistic image of Barbara Boxer before us since she typifies the drive to power, absolute and unharnessed, of the Obama Machine!
