Carly Fiorina is running for Senator from California. She has infamously been picking on Senator Barbara Boxer, referring to  an exchange between Boxer and Brigadier General Michael Walsh, where Boxer asked the General to call her Senator instead of ma'am. Fiorina has said she hopes Boxer will not need to be called 'senator' anymore after she wins. Anyways callmebarbara.com is up again campaigning for 'Carly for California'. The site has a video that claims to be the "30 seconds Barbara Boxer doesn't want you to see..." The only problem is the video isn't 30 SECONDS!

It's actually 16.

Maybe this stuff is part of the reason why HP fired her.

Here's some text from the site:

When Barbara Boxer insisted that a Brigadier General in the United States Military call her "Senator," her arrogance came through loud and clear. The 30 seconds where she insists that she is called "Senator" instead of "Ma'am" are pretty ridiculous, which is why it's the 30 seconds Barbara Boxer doesn't want you to see!

CallMeBarbara.com is a web site that asks voters to give Barbara Boxer a break so that she can go back to being called just “Barbara” instead of insisting on being called “Senator.”

Earlier this year, Boxer famously demanded that Brigadier General Michael Walsh call her “Senator” instead of “ma’am” in a committee hearing. CallMeBarbara.com features video of this infamous exchange and provides visitors with more information about Barbara Boxer’s failed and ineffective representation.

If you'd like to send Barbara Boxer back to California where she can go by her first name, rather that worry about what title is being used to address her, you're in the right place.

And here's the video:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
