where the Good Lord split ya!
WASHINGTON – Sen. Barbara Boxer of California bid farewell to Congress on Wednesday after 33 years as a liberal champion, choking up as she read a letter from jazz great Sonny Rollins thanking her for “making life beautiful” for the people she’s represented.

Like the old joke about the guy hitting his dates with a two-by-four…
Thirty three years is way too long for anyone, progressive/conservative/green/libertarian to be a sitting United States Senator!
So very glad this one is gone.
If memory serves, she demanded a military officer address her as Senator, instead of Ma’am. Technically, we’re supposed to, in accord with Rules of Etiquette. But an officer operates under different rules!
I, for one, will not. Ever.
