Just to show the different treatment Republican and Democratic Senators receive, consider this. In 2006, he Washington Post obsessed about then-Senator George Allen’s one-time use of the strange word, “macaca,” to describe a left-winger (with a mohawk or mullet (depending on who’s describing it) stalking his campaign with a video camera. It was indeed an odd moment and a strange expression.
Somehow, the Post found deeper meaning in that. By contrast, Ma’am Barbara Boxer, his one-time colleague from the state where he was born, has made multiple strange statements, many of which are indeed indicative of her attitude toward her critics and constituents. And yet, she gets a pass from the media.
In the past Ma’am has won election and reelection in California because she is the Democratic candidate in a largely Democratic state. But, if people saw exactly what kind of person this Democrat was, well, they would surely opt for different representation.
To remind you of Ma’am’s attitude toward those with opinions different from her own, let me show them to show again.
Here’s how Ma’am treats a Brigadier General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers:
Here’s how Ma’am tries to discredit a black man offering the views of the business association he heads:
Here’s Ma’am saying that those whose disagree with Democratic proposals for increased state involvement in the health care market (including many of her own constituents) are really stooges for outside organizations:
If any Republican Senator had been caught this many times on tape saying such silly things, his party would have long since made sure she wasn’t running for reelection.
I still have no evidence that any local television station in the Golden State has shown Ma’am Boxer for what she truly is.
