Lindsey Graham, Barbara Boxer Hold Slap Fight On Senate Floor

Here’s a clip from the popular Hardball “Sideshow” segment — the part that covers the exact same stuff as the rest of the show but is tagged, arbitrarily, as being super wacky! — in which Lindsey Graham gets really gay about The Stimulus Package, because it doesn’t give Mother any funds with which to buy him a pony. Barbara Boxer shouts “GEORGE BUSH” just to shut him up, and Graham laments that no one ever buys him nice things. [YouTube] Read more on Lindsey Graham, Barbara Boxer Hold Slap Fight On Senate Floor…

Senator Boxer Asks the Tough Questions

Barbara Boxer, in a letter to the Washington Post, asks: Doesn’t Dana Milbank [Washington Sketch, July 28] have anything better to do than snoop around U.S. senators? Apparently, Mr. Milbank snooped over my shoulder and saw that I had a scrap of paper with the phonetic spelling “mah-MOOD” and reported it was to help me pronounce the name of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. If Mr. Milbank had listened to my line of questioning or even snooped correctly, he would have known that I was talking about the speaker of the Iraqi parliament, Mahmoud al-Mashhadani. This is on top of the fact that Mr. Milbank saw fit to take and print a scratched-out piece of paper that Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.) had intended for the trash can. In the future, I hope Mr. Milbank gets his Mahmouds right and stops his unwelcome snooping, which is taking trash journalism to new heights.
