Oh, long shall this glorious moment of fightin’ fightiness live in the annals of nutroots fighty fightingdom! I’ll pass on the obvious observation about what the reaction would have been if a Republican had pulled this kind of power trip on a Democrat and ask you instead to imagine it with the gender roles reversed. Not just the reaction in the hearing room, either; listen closely at the very end here and you’ll catch CNN anchor Don Lemon muttering “good for her” under his breath.

Thanks to Cory D. for the tip. Exit question: Is Boxer always this abrasive or is it only when the cameras are on?

Update: Made me laugh.

Update: JPod watched Inhofe’s questioning of Gore and says Boxer’s got him dead to rights.
