Ma’am meltdown! Barbara Boxer to GOP senators: ‘Get out of the fringe lane,’ sexists!

Citing unanswered transparency concerns, Republican senators boycotted Thursday’s scheduled Environment and Public Works Committee vote on potential EPA head Gina McCarthy’s nomination. That didn’t go over well with Sen. Barbara Boxer, chair of the committee.

The Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering described her response as a “meltdown,” and with good reason.

And out comes the lady-parts card.

You’d think someone called her “ma’am” again!

Uh oh. Another hostage situation!

Get out of the “fringe lane”? Sorry, were they in your way?

Sorry, Ma’am Boxer, you’re blocking the fringe lane.

  • Steve_J

    Yes Ma’am.

    • angeleyez

      Has Progressive Liberal Barbara Boxer gone so far to the Left that
      the truth offends her ?
      ▲ YES
      ▼ NO

    • grais

      “Mrs. Boxer” would probably piss her off more.

  • Steve_J

    I think Boxer is on the train to Crazy Town.

    • ceemack

      That’s the one piece of high-speed rail in California that’s actually up and running.

    • Garth Haycock

      She’s the engineer of that train.

      • Jeremy

        she is a whackjob no doubt.

    As a lifelong Californian, I can testify that this state has become “fringe” since she’s been representing it. We were perfectly fine before.

    • beefrank

      Frankly, California started to become fringe after Reagan was fooled to issue amnesty to a few million illegal aliens living in the state which increased Democrat registered voters. It is the reason the Dems are pushing amnesty now and why the Republicans are opposing it. It has nothing to do with helping people or the economy.

      • nc

        Boxer started serving in the House in 1983 (Senate in 1993), and Reagan’s Amnesty was 1986. My statement stands.

  • Ukisociety Jones

    Sen. Boxer, (D)erp

    • Edward Dusty Rhodes

      (D)umbass would be more fitting for her!

  • TugboatPhil

    Who knew that Boxer was a McCarthyite??

    • KayGee

      Except that McCarthy was actually right about all those hidden communists, the future of today confirmed all his predictions.

  • SJ’s Dad

    If you LITERALLY want to drive in the LEFT lane, move to London!
    (Of course then she’d b!tc# about all the steering wheels being on the RIGHT!)

  • pndlumswing

    Boxer=lunatic fringe

  • bicentennialguy

    Fringe? She should try looking at her nasty, fried, OLD LADY hair.

  • I M Free

    Here comes the BOXER…barks like chihuahua…

    • Turd Burglestein

      And has the face of a sharpei

    • nc

      My Chihuahua resents the comparison. But I understand it.

      • bicentennialguy

        Your little baby doesn’t deserve that kind of disparagement. :)

        • nc

          Thanks. You’ve got a little cutie patootie there yourself.

  • Cy

    Wow, what an unpleasant, annoying, sexist b****. Typical liberal female.

    • TugboatPhil

      Wow, what an unpleasant, annoying, sexist b****. Typical liberal female.

      You can say it much shorter next time.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    I am revising my demand for an IQ Test for Congressmen; I think they also need a sanity test.

  • beefrank

    Boxer is the Fringe Queen. The Republicans need to close the EPA which was created by Nixon to gain favorable status with the Democrat Congress. Boy, that really worked.

  • Spatial Awareness

    HELLO AMERICA???!!! Could someone please remove any pressure cookers from .@SenatorBoxer’s possession! #STAT #FRINGE #KooKooForCocoaPuffs

  • DavidKramer

    Hmmm, someone should ask her if she though the same thing when the Wisconsin fleebaggers ran to Illinois. I love it when we use their own tactics against them. I said during the ObamaTaxKillJobsCare bill the Repubs should just leave Washington and let the Dems do what they do, kill jobs.

    edit to add- by the way, Fringe was a cool sci fi show, I resemble that remark.

  • rinodino

    Ha ha boxer fighting like a girl lol love it cause its the truth… The great Republican Party is near close to fringe indeed, what a shame smdh

    • DavidKramer

      How does it feel to make minimum wage for OFA? Hey, why don’t they pay $20 an hour so you can have a living wage? Is that hypocrisy making even a slight dent in that Stockholm syndrome at all?

    • TugboatPhil

      The DNC supports welfare payments for terrorists and government funded infanticide and the GOP is fringe?

      Sure, in Crazyland.

    • ObamaFail

      How’s it feel being part of the party that helps terrorists get away with their crimes? Making sure terrorists have lawyers, or THANKING them for what they did in Benghazi.

      • rinodino

        Nice edit

    • grais

      She’s not fighting like a girl. She’s freaking out like a dingbat.

    • tops116

      So you think “fighting like a girl” amounts to “throwing a hissy fit in front of cameras”?

  • Marcy Cook

    Get out of the fringe lane? Why? You want more room in it?

    • r_coplin2001

      I don’t think their is a big enough room for all the fringe Democrats that are in Congress now.

  • copperpeony

    Watching for the drool when the Box babbles hysterically. Sure sign of rabies.

    • yourmamatoo

      Another one who made me laugh.

  • Republicanvet

    “Gooowing off the rails on a crazy train …” Ozzy

  • Gallatin

    I expect the Republicans in the Senate to obstruct anything the dimocrats want to do; unless the dimocrats in the Senate want to CUT TAXES, CUT SPENDING AND REDUCE REGULATIONS.

    • nc

      You EXPECT?

      • Gallatin

        Yes I EXPECT! YOU have a problem with that?

        • nc

          Well, based on past performance, I would have chosen a different word, but hey, knock yourself out.

  • People Corporation

    Bless her heart.

    • rippersnort

      If she had one.

  • Republicanvet

    Typical fringe liberal…throwing a childish tantrum when things don’t go your way. What’s next? Rolling on the floor kicking and screaming? How about threatening to hold your breath?

  • Karl Morey

    Living proof that the Constitution ought to specify a MAXIMUM age for service, and not just a minimum…

  • ceemack

    Cosmologists say there is no such thing in nature as a perfect vacuum.

    The interior of Barbara Boxer’s skull proves them wrong.


    Babs needs to retire for her country’s sake and her family’s.

  • goldwater89

    Boxer voted against Condi Rice’s nomination to Secretary of State. I guess that make you a sexist too Babs.

    • Ronald Green

      And a racist, don’t forget that too.

  • Bemani Dog

    Wow. At this rate, the world’s smallest violin is going to need a new bow and strings.

  • BAW

    Who are these “pro-polluters” – can Boxer name names? Does she have a list of the organized groups? Do they hold protests and dump toxic waste in our waterways? (Or is she talking about the crazies who think it’s cool to poop in the woods?) Who is she talking about? We need to know. We can all agree they are “fringe” she just needs to be specific.

    • camnpat

      I think she is talking about anyone who doesn’t agree/vote like she does.

  • CatHerder

    Off on another ma’ampage?

  • spepper

    Why is Dustin Hoffman still running around dressed as his “TOOTSIE” movie character? No wait– that’s BARBARA BOXER? My bad

  • LinTaylor

    Wow, you can actually HEAR the froth in these tweets.

  • r_coplin2001

    Ok the people in my state need to vote her out of the Senate when she is up for reelection again

    • yourmamatoo

      Do you really think there is a chance of that happening?

  • Adrian Vance

    Barbara Boxer is a blithering nitwit. You cannot hold a conversation with her.

    See The Two Minute Conservative via Google or: When you speak ladies will swoon and liberal gentlemen will weep.

  • dancerina

    I remember how rude Boxer was to a general ( military personnel say ma’am, etc.. as a sign of respect) and jumped all over him for calling her Ma’am. She said “I have worked to get here, don’t call me ma’am.” He should have just answered okay, b****.

    • GaryTheBrave

      I wished that General had responded, “So have I, madam.”

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    Boxer, Feinstein and Pelosi…
    Tres Locos. I need to leave Cali.

  • yourmamatoo

    Bless her little psycho heart.
    Who lets her get away with this nonsense?
    A republican needs to put her in her pace.

  • tops116

    At what point will people realize that it’s best not to accuse someone of “haranguing” when they themselves are in the midst of shouting and having a public meltdown?

  • rippersnort



    You need to be the Ambassador of Libya.
    You need to be demoted like Mr. Hix was.
    You could care less about the Truth!
    Barbara, have you heard or seen anyone that was on the ground in Benghazi before, during and after the Attacks on 9/11/12?
    Were you there?
    Susan Rice wasn’t.
    Hillary wasn’t.
    Obama wasn’t.
    General Carter Ham wasn’t.
    Leon Panetta wasn’t.
    You could care less whom is harmed as long as it isn’t you or your pocket book.
