Barbara Boxer Hit on "Call me Senator" (VIDEO) Debate Moment

Barbara Boxer hit on "Call me Senator" (VIDEO) debate moment -- but who won? And was debate fair?

Lots of discussion today -- and some reaction from the campaigns --on whether last night's televised Senate debate was fair to the two California candidates, Democratic U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer and Republican Carly Fiorina.

A few Republicans have weighed in today to our email box suggesting that in the debate sponsored by The Chronicle, KTVU Channel 2 and KQED FM radio, Carly Fiorina appeared to be pressed harder on issues, like Prop. 23 and the right to choose.

Then again, Real Clear Politics today is highlighting Boxer took some heat, too: they're posting her debate answer -- they've headlined it her refusal to apologize -- regarding the famous "Call me Senator" incident.

: "Mam" is a respectful term used to address a woman, at least it used to be. However, Boxer's inability to understand this demonstrates the hubristic reaction of this three term oligarch.

On another point, the California senate race amplifies the need to repeal the 17th Amendment. On one hand we have a candidate who is power hungry and contemptuous of the people that supposedly she represents, but who in fact is self-serving and a lackey for special interest. On the other hand we have a candidate who has no legislative experience nor a modicum of community connection with California, but is simply rich and made a name for herself in the private sector. This why the 17th needs to be repealed. We must return the rightful place of the states within the federal government and the Legislative Branch.

You have to love Boxer's neo-fascist Hillary feminist gray pantsuit. It's a great look for the active woman who enjoys stomping your throat with jackboots.
