Bite Me, Barbie

I haven't posted in a long time (long story), and I probably won't be posting a lot in the near future. With that said, I just wanted to vent on this item that I was reading over lunch.

Brigadier General Michael Walsh was testifying before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works yesterday. Senator Barbara Boxer (Pretentious Witch-CA) asked General Walsh a question, but she promptly cut his answer short. The reason? He had the temerity to address her as "ma'am" and not "Senator."

Addressing Barbie as "ma'am" was a show of respect. It was a common courtesy. But good ol' Barbie doesn't want to simply receive respect and courtesy; she wants lesser mortals to address her as "Senator" at all times.

Barbie stated that she wants to be addressed as "Senator" instead of any other title of courtesy and respect because she "worked so hard to get that title." I don't buy Barbie's reasoning, though. Instead, I believe that Barbie is demanding that non-senators call her "Senator" so that she can lord her position of authority over us peons and remind us of our place.

Sorry, Barbie, but you're not going to get that from me. And the same goes for all of the other members of the House and Senate. You pompous buffoons need to get your collective heads wired to your collective tails and remember that you are public servants, not public masters.

In short: Bite me, Barbie.

Anon:

What you think or don't think has no bearing on the reality of my service in the United States Marine Corps. Thanks for trying to think, though.

Picking on girls? I don't believe that Barbie would like you calling her a girl. She prefers to be addressed as "Senator."

No respect for Congress? The institution - yes; the less-than-honorable members - no.

Just a survivalist wacko? Hey, who are you calling a survivalist?!
