Can you believe California just reelected this woman?
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) today likened the United States of America to Iran, North Korea and Pakistan because those nations also do not allow homosexuals in their militaries.This is so offensive for a United States Senator to compare this country to those awfully oppressive regimes.
Boxer likened the U.S.A. to the Communist regime in North Korea, the Islamic regime in Iran and the Pakistani government at a press conference in which she called for repealing the ban on homosexuals in the military during the lameduck session of Congress, which is taking place now before the new members elected on Nov. 2 can arrive in Washington, D.C. and replace the members who are retiring or who were defeated.
The funniest part is that this is so clearly simply political because Democrats had the Senate, the House and the White House for the past two years. If they really wanted to change this policy they would've done so. But legislators aren't going to stick their necks out on this, they're simply going to wait for judges to forcibly overturn it and then they'll be able to simply throw their hands up in the air claiming powerlessness. And Senator Boxer knows she's safe in her seat for the next seven years so she can go back to badmouthing the country without worrying about joining the unemployment line.
