Laugh A Little – When Senators Speak — Dave’s Diary
We all have favorite movies or movie scenes we can watch over and over again with the same level of enjoyment each time. One of mine is the political parody that features the embarrassing moment in June of 2009 when Senator Barbara Boxer, California Democrat, interrupted a committee hearing to give Army brigadier general Michael Walsh of the Army Corps of Engineers the request to call her “senator” instead of “ma’am” because she had “worked so hard” to earn the title.The Senator was unaware that “ma’am” was the honored and respectful way to address a female superior and it triggered a lot of reaction at the time five years ago.
Hollywood movie director David Zucker rounded up a few of his friends, produced the parody and the results were and still are hilarious. An email buddy reminded me that in this era of such extreme political disrespect, sometimes all you can do is laugh.
