Dammit, Barbara Boxer!

Up till now I've mostly liked Barbara Boxer. Then I heard she'd been campaigning for Joe Fucking Lieberman. Time for yet another field trip. Here, read this.

Oh yeah, and Homeland Security protection grants are going to a miniature golf course, a mule festival, and an insect zoo. I'll admit to some sympathy for the insect zoo, but I'll admit I'm amazed that a nation that so readily calls the Orkin Man will give more to protect the bugs than, for example, its citizens who get raped.

Are we citizens? Or are we kidding ourselves? Are we commodities, public facilities.... Wait, I guess "the beach at the end of the street" is a public facility too. So, less than that. I'll bet someone, somewhere, is officially protecting an outhouse from terrorists. The only public facility not being protected from terrorosts -- in fact, pretty much handed to them on a platter -- is women, especially our cunts and wombs, but don't forget our unpaid labor.

Of course, only to our own homegrown terrorists. None a them illegal alien terrorists.

Christ almighty, is this what white women in the Jim Crow South felt like? Like toilets marked "Whites Only"?

Boxer was HORRIBLE on Jon Stewart. I don't know how she thinks that the answer to every question about a Bush debacle is "and that's why we need to elect Democrats this weekend" but once is enough, twice is shilling and three times is damn irritating even to Democrats - and empty to boot.

Wow, I guess I don't watch enough TV. Come to think of it, stuff like that is why. Ouch.

Dang, I wanted to like her: I remember in her first (?) campaign, someone at Earth Island was waving one of her campaign logo tchotchkes -- a pair of Boxer boxer shorts.

(BTW, Boxer Press is unrelated.)
