From Politics Daily:
Overheard at a Senate hearing yesterday:
“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.”
–Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to Brigadier General Michael Walsh during Senate hearing Tuesday, when he the general repeatedly said, “Yes, ma’am,” and “No, ma’am,” when answering Boxer’s questions at hearing she chaired on New Orleans’ levee system.
What hubris on this battle ax. She is questioning a Brigadier General, for crying out loud.
Who do you think worked harder to get where they are today?
She is a servant of the public. To demand she be called by a proper title shows her feelings of elitism.
Get over yourself.
