#1 Excellent. Much more compelling than "Senator" Boxer

#2 Bush asked that he be addressed as President, not sir.
Army protocol manual says Senators be addressed as such, not sir and especially not ma'am.
Many women take Boxer's side, finding the general and all who side with him to be chauvinist pr*cks who don't want to give women respect for their accomplishments.
I think virtually all big time politicians are pr*cks, whether ma'ams or sirs, and deserve no respect. Hence, use the full title just like when you dress down your misbehavin' child you use first, middle and last name, or at least I did.

#3 While I personally think this little tiff is much ado about nothing; I am struck by the portion of Ms. Boxer's comment ... "I worked so hard to get that title" ... What "real" work did she perform to get the title? Like most politicians, she seems to care more about the appearance of governing / leading than actually doing something positive for her country.

#5 After 27 years of military service, this is all beyond me. We are trained to say sir or Maam. This is not a chavaunist act, it is an act of respect. Boxer and her supporters are just platforming their disgust for the military in a manner that most Americans do not understand in the military. This is a culture of respect, Boxer know damn well that he would answer like that. Now she gets fifteen mimutes on MSM and smears the military its a win win for her.

#6 Boxer is as dumb as a bag of hammers. Her condescending tone is classic Boxer. She loathes the military. She has a real chance of being ousted if the CA GOP runs someone with a brain, as I believe the CA Donk party has possibly trashed themselves with the economic downfall and tax issues. BTW - don't blame San Diego, we vote military

#7 interesting that foremost on her mind is not the issue at handle but her status...of course that's why she is one of the three Axis of Sheville of California...the others Pelosi and Feinstein.

#8 At this period in time being called Maam would be a step up from being called a Senator

#9 Several steps up, Chief. Maybe a whole staircase.
