Sen. Boxer Instructs Brigadier General Not to Call Her ‘Ma’am’
GLENN: Go to hell. Go to hell.
DAN: This guy's an Army corp brigadier general Michael Walsh.
GLENN: Play it.
DAN: Waiting for you.
BOXER: Well, why has it been delayed?
GENERAL: Ma'am, LACPR
BOXER: Do me a favor. Could you say senator instead of ma'am? It's just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title. So I would appreciate it. Yes, thank you.
GENERAL: Yes, senator.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh.
DAN: Hate these people. Gosh.
STU: Are you serious? You've worked hard? You are talking to a man who
GLENN: Who is a brigadier general.
DAN: You are a socialist who won an election in California. Oh, my gosh. Wow, that was difficult.
STU: You've worked I mean, honestly.
GLENN: You know how hard we work, senator, to pay your frickin' salary? You fly around isn't Barbara Boxer the one who flies around on her husband's corporate jet?
STU: I don't remember.
GLENN: Check. I think she's the or is it Feinstein or stein or whatever her name is? One of them is flying around on her corporate jet. You know what? Why don't you stop taking your salary? I'd like to see some of these people cut back on their salary, cut back on their perks. Isn't there anyone with a shred of decency in Washington? You've worked hard? You work for me.
STU: Can you believe
STU: You are talking to a military man. This is a group of people who preserve this country and you are killing it.
GLENN: This coming from a woman asking him, "I've worked hard for that title." This coming from a woman who they held up the funding for the war so they could give $108 billion to the IMF and clash for clunkers! And you want me to call you you know what? Congress, it is time for someone to sit in that chair and tell them exactly what they need to hear, somebody to sit in that chair. I don't know what they did to Ken Lewis from the Bank of America. I think they water boarded the guy. I think they water boarded the guy. He about wet his pants when they were like, "So tell me about the..." "Nothing, nothing, I just have a warm spot now."
STU: How would you not be afraid of this government?
GLENN: Of course you would be afraid of this government. Why is it that people aren't filling out their census, or they are, they are filling out their census and they don't want to? You know why? Because they are afraid. They are afraid. They have storm troopers. They are called the IRS. Look what they did to Joe the plumber. Immediately they went after him and dug up all of his records, and they used state officials to do it! They are trying to intimidate you.
You know, I talked to Janet Contreras. She is the woman who wrote that letter. She knows. She said. She said, "I know, they are coming, they are going to come after me. They are going to smear me. They are going to make me look bad." I'm looking at the blogs today. They are already doing it. She ain't gonna give up. Don't you give up. You stand up for what you believe in. Are you a mouse or an American?
