Comment: "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 This why the 17th needs to be repealed.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.
