The California Media have enabled Barbara Boxer’s Failure

Willie Brown once called Barbara Boxer the luckiest politician in California.  She’s had an interesting strategy to cling onto power in this once-Republican state that has been trending Democratic for the past twenty years.  And she has done so by spending limited time in the jurisdiction she represents in the Senate, returning primarily when election time rolls ’round.

She won a contested Democratic primary in 1992 as the only woman running against 2 male opponents, with a primary “primary electorate [that] was 55 percent female“.  Since then, she has managed to avoid primary challenges by appeasing the left-wing interest groups which dominate her party, making it difficult for a Democrat to challenge her.  With an incumbent’s financial advantage and the Democrats’ demographic edge in this state, she has managed to survive against weak Republican challengers in years (1998, 2004) where voters tossed out few incumbents.

The media have all but ignored this career politician.  Only a handful of newspapers and other media in this huge state pick up stories which journalists would rush to cover if they involved a Republican.

Barbara Boxer is indeed lucky.  Had these stories been more widely covered in California, she would not even enjoy the same standing in the polls as does her outgoing colleague from Wisconsin.  And Russ Feingold held “open meetings in each of the state’s 72 counties every year” during his entire Senate tenure.  Boxer hadn’t visited some regions of this state since her last campaign.

Today, let’s vote out this career politician.  She has failed California for far too long.  And it’s long past time our news media took note of it.

  3. Barbara Boxer is an example of the liberal dumbing down of Amerika. I’m a Democrat, but a centrist who will support conservative positions that I believe in, and always bypass known uber liberals because experience tells me that they shoot from their emotions, and don’t look for practical solutions to problems. They also do not like to be opposed on anything, and I see them as the most dangerous group in America. They would be the first to take my rights away if it served their purposes.
