...To me, this has nothing to do with D or R. If this were a Republican it would be just as maddening. What pisses me, and I'm sure most everyone else off, is the idea that these people (I say these cuz I'm sure she's not the only "Senator" that feels this way) think they are something special. That they are royalty or something. How about go **** yourself you douche! You are OUR employee! These losers still poop on a toilet like the rest of us. We need term limits ASAP, so losers in office have to get real jobs sooner. What a self centered douche.
Why reinvent the wheel? Thanks for posting my sentiments exactly!!!

You and I really aren't that far off in how we think PR. To me, this has nothing to do with D or R. If this were a Republican it would be just as maddening. What pisses me, and I'm sure most everyone else off, is the idea that these people (I say these cuz I'm sure she's not the only "Senator" that feels this way) think they are something special.

somebody needs to punch that b!tch in the trachea. by the by, military protocol advises officers to use "sir" or "ma'am" when addressing anyone higher than them on the chain of command.
I don't think a senator is in their chain of command.
My understanding, however, is that if you're in the services, the tradition is to use "Sir" and "Ma'am" when addressing civilians. At least that's why my buddies tell me, you guys can confirm or correct at will.
Assuming Boxer "gets" this, which I do not assume, one could also assume that she objects to the gender-spefic "sir" and "ma'am," and wanted to make that point. Or, one could assume that she is concerned with the age implication, and another possibility is that she does not like the classist origin of the terms.
IF one establishes that she "gets" what the military does by tradition, it is also possible that she is challenging military tradition.
This is not inherently wrong.
I do not consider any of the symbolic implications overriding, but then I am not Barbara Boxer. I also have seen retired soldiers and marines of my age say to younger ones "Don't call me sir, that's my dad," or similar blow-off phrases, because they wanted to cut through the formality.
I think you'd have to be there to know whether she's offering informality, or somehow critiquing on the grounds of sexism or classism.
NOW: IS THIS MORE OR LESS ARROGANT THAN TAPPING A STAFFER YOU EMPLOY AND ALSO EMPLOY HER HUBBY AND KID SO YOU HAVE A FAMILY DEAL AND NOBODY CAN TALK WITHOUT LOSING A JOB?????????
FAMILY PACK ENSIGN AND TAP TAP CRAIG HA WHAT A HYPOCRITICAL JOKE MAYBE THEY NEED TO SHUT DOWN LARRY CRAIGSLIST WHAT DO YOU THINK BILLY RED-STATE?
What Would Make The Old Bag Think Of That
It's very easy to have a conversation with someone and not call them anything thats what people should do from now on with this thing when they are in front of her, simply say "yes" and "no"
No Mamn, No Senator, No *****
