Bye Bye Babs, and a Note of Thanks!
California Senator Barbara Boxer, topping the short list of the Senate’s most leftist members, is calling it quits. After five terms in the House, Boxer was elected to the Senate in the 1992 Bill Clinton wave.
It is no small demonstration of hypocrisy that Boxer – who led the attempt to black-bag George H.W. Bush’s 1991 SCOTUS nominee, Clarence Thomas, on sexual harassment charges, and who in 1995 went after Republican Sen. Robert Packwood on similar charges – was deafeningly quiet when her man Clinton couldn’t figure out what the definition of “is” is when admitting to having sex with an intern in the Oval Office.
Boxer, who has a 100% rating from both unions and environmentalist groups, built her career advocating for abortion and against the Second Amendment and, more recently, “climate change.”
So why a note of thanks?
Boxer proclaimed, “I have about a thousand accomplishments,” and not one of her legislative achievements complied with her oath “to Support and Defend” our Constitution. But she did, inadvertently, boost the sales of our Patriot Shop products.
In 2011, after Republican-appointed federal judge John Roll was among six citizens murdered by a psychopath in Tucson, and Democrat Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was wounded in that assault, Boxer, seizing the moment to use tragedy as fodder for her gun control agenda, held a press conference. At that conference she held up an image of one of our Patriot Shop stickers, claiming our products and pro-gun sentiment in general were responsible for that assault. The attention she brought helped our bottom line.
Farewell, Ms. Boxer, and don’t let the door hit you in the rear on the way out!
