DeMint: Boxer Is "Loose Cannon" Who "Speaks Before She Thinks"
California Senator Boxer scolded a General for calling her Ma'am yesterday. She related to the General that she should be identified as "Senator" as she worked so hard to get that title. Senator Boxer must be unaware that under military protocol anyone who outranks you is called, "sir or Ma'am". Interesting enough Senator Boxer did not refer to him as "General" in the rebuke. It should be noted as well that the General also called Male senators Sir.
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) opined Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) demanding a general to call her "Senator" at a hearing yesterday.
Mr. DeMint called Mrs. Boxer "a loose cannon."
"For her to try to embarrass him in front of the public -- I just can't put up for that kind of thing -- if people think too much of themselves," he said.
He added that "ma'am" is "the highest title" -- higher than senator or congressman.
