For the second time in just the last month California Senator Barbara Boxer has embarrassed her state and herself with he condescending approach to those who come to testify before her committees. Last time it was Boxer telling Brigadier General Michael Walsh to call her "senator" instead of mam. "Do me a favor…could you call me senator instead of mam. It's just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title," she told the general, who despite all his best efforts was unable to demonstrate the appropriate level of obsequiousness before Her Majesty the Queen of California. This time it's Harry Alford, the chair of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, who calls her out. Courtesy of Hot Air, watch and enjoy:
