Senator Barbara Boxer of California has hit a new low for even her sick demented party - she chastized Secretary of State Rice for not having children, and implying this meant that she had no right to make decisions which affected the children of others.
BOXER'S LOW BLOW
Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer, an appalling scold from California, wasted no time yesterday in dragging the debate over Iraq about as low as it can go - attacking Secre tary of State Condoleezza Rice for being a childless woman.
Boxer was wholly in character for her party - New York's own two Democratic senators, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton, were predictably opportunistic - but the Golden State lawmaker earned special attention for the tasteless jibes she aimed at Rice.
Rice appeared before the Senate in defense of President Bush's tactical change in Iraq, and quickly encountered Boxer.
"Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price," Boxer said. "My kids are too old, and my grandchild is too young."
Then, to Rice: "You're not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family."
We scarcely know where to begin.
Imagine if, when Bill Clinton was sending others' sons and daughters to fight Serbia - a country which never attacked the United States or its interests - that a Republican Senator told Madeleine Albright that she should not make decisions regarding war because she had no children...one could almost see the feminists marching to the Senate steps to demand this Senator's resignation. And the media would be highlighting the slur.
But in the land where liberals can make up any crap they wish, this goes silent except for a few places.
As we like to say, "Read it all." In all of its sickening totality.
