Jeers to Babs Boxer

I gave props to Sen. Barbara Boxer (Moonbat-CA) yesterday for condemning pro-terrorist organization CAIR. The props will be short-lived, as that hateful crazy bitch is once again worthy of our scorn. From FNC:
The White House fired back Friday at Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer's verbal slap at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, calling the California Democrat's caustic comments about Rice's family life "outrageous."

Boxer lit into Rice on Thursday with bitter diatribe during a heated line of questioning before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee looking into Iraq policies. At one point, Boxer turned to the broad question of who pays the ultimate price for war. Rice has never married and has no children.

"Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price. My kids are too old and my grandchild is too young," Boxer said. "You're not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family. So who pays the price? The American military and their families."

"I guess that means I don't have kids. Was that the purpose?" Rice said. "At the time I just found it a bit confusing, frankly, in retrospect, I thought single women had come further than that. The only question is are you making good decisions because you have kids?"

White House spokesman Tony Snow on Friday called Boxer's comments "outrageous."

"I don't know if she was intentionally that tacky, but I do think it's outrageous. Here you got a professional woman, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Barbara Boxer is sort of throwing little jabs because Condi doesn't have children, as if that means that she doesn't understand the concerns of parents. Great leap backward for feminism," Snow told FOX News Talk's Brian and The Judge.
Boxer sure represented feminism well, didn't she? For years, the manhating feminist NAGs have been saying that women don't need to have parasites (or, as normal Americans call them, husbands and children) depriving them of the life they want to lead, and that women can be successful professionals, and they don't need to take any guff from men (unless the women are named Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, or Juanita Broaddrick, in which case they are casualties of the gender war).

Yet here you have a woman (and an ethnic one, too) who has had to overcome prejudice and obstacles to get an education, become a distinguished professional, and earn the Secretary of State post (becoming the first black woman to do so), and Babs the Bitch is insulting her for not having any parasites (or, as normal Americans call them, husbands and children)? Apparently, feminists ignore their own rhetoric when it comes to women who don't tote the leftist handbag.

So were the troops glad that Babs had their backs? Um, hardly:
One Vietnam War veteran — and recent American Legion national commander — who now has a son serving in Afghanistan said he was put off by Boxer's comments.

Thomas Bock, 59, of Aurora, Colo., said he heard about the exchange on local radio and thought, "Wow! What a terrible thing to say, that only those people that have family members in the military have a price to pay. This is our freedom, this is our county. And the sooner that we stand up and stand for our country, the sooner we'll be able to bring our troops home."

He said despite the fact that his son, helicopter pilot Army Capt. Adam Bock, is back in a combat zone, "I think she [Boxer] missed the whole point. ... You've got to focus on what the real issue is, and the real issue is the global war on terror, not a personal price or the personal sacrifice. This is a sacrifice for our country."
Damn skippy it is, Mr. Bock.
