Barbara Boxer: I'm Losing Because Voters Are "Grumpy"

So Chuckie Schumer says "sour;" Senator Barbara "Senator Boxer" Boxer says "grumpy."

I think the Democrat Party is in unanimous agreement that the public is irrational.

What was that term I remember from 1994...? Ah yes: Angry White Men. "The nation had a temper tantrum tonight," Peter Jennings informed me then.


Facing the toughest re-election fight of her career, three-term U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer attributed her sagging approval rating to voters who are "grumpy" about the sputtering economy and an opponent, Republican nominee Carly Fiorina, who "doesn't have a job" and spends her time "going around the state trashing me in every way possible."

The California Democrat's remarks came during an hourlong interview with the Mercury News editorial board, in which she cast the election as a choice between moving forward or returning to the policies of President George W. Bush; suggested she would favor raising the Social Security tax on "very upper-income workers" to help balance the federal budget; and said she favors lowering the filibuster threshold in the Senate from 60 votes to 55 to curb what she called Republican obstructionism.

That's cute. She thinks we'll need the filibuster next January.

By the way: So Carly Fiorina doesn't have a job?

Is that, like, a bad thing?

She doesn't have a job like 15% of your constituents, Senator Ma'am Senator?

Really?

And whose fault is that?

Oh I mean --

And who is to be credited for that particular success?

Today's Democratic Party

You will credit us for all our success.

But first, you will blow me.

Thanks to Artesian.
