A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Hypocrite, thy name is Boxer: City Journal's Katerine Ernst rips California's dimmest bulb, Sen. Barbara Boxer, a new one. After detailing Boxer's nutty attacks on Judge Janice Rogers Brown, Ernst gives us a little history lesson.


The Barbara Boxer of four years ago, you’d like to think, would find today’s Barbara Boxer appalling. After all, back then, the senator based her objection to John Ashcroft’s attorney general nomination almost solely on his “treatment” of a black judge up for senatorial confirmation (Ashcroft vehemently opposed the judge on grounds he was “pro-criminal” and that he once called for a retrial for a serial murderer). Ding-ding goes the Hypocrisy Bell. “Was John Ashcroft’s treatment of Judge Ronnie White fair? Did he have a good heart when it came to dealing with [him]?” opined Boxer as she intoned how distraught Ashcroft’s opposition made her and her buddy, Congresswoman Maxine Waters. “I will never forget the day this Senate voted down Judge Ronnie White on a straight partisan vote—the first time in 50 long years that a judge nominee who had been passed favorably through the Judiciary Committee was so treated.”


Boxer is simply an obnoxious parrot of whatever the (need I say "extreme"?) views of the radical feminist/pro-abortion lobby has decided the proper outlook on the world should be. California can do better, but I'm not sure the state deserves better.
