It's All About Her

This really offends my sensibilities.

"Sir" and "ma'am" have always been quite respectful ways to address adult males and females, respectively.

Pelosi, Boxer, Waters ... all California Congress Critters who think waaaaaaay too much of themselves....

Here's a man who has spent his life serving his country. And in the military, "sir" and "ma'am" are literally drilled in to your head to show respect when addressing people.

But Queen Boxer uses it in a not-so-passive ... aggressive moment to slap down the General during his testimony. She, whether she knows it or not, is trying to discredit his testimony. She doesn't care what he's saying, she just likes sitting where she's sitting and being filmed doing it. She's ready for her closeup, Mr. Deville.

Question. When he addressed male Senators, did he say "sir" or "Senator" most of the time?

I know military folks, and I'd bet dollars to doughnuts I know what the answer is.
