Barbara Boxer Responds

Well, not to my criticism, specifically. But she just posted a diary on Daily Kos, and has responded to quite a few comments. Although not the topic of the diary, many of the initial comments were about her vote on the Patriot Act, so I thought I’d direct you to it, since it is a rare opportunity to hear a representative interact with smart, informed questioners about an unpopular decision.

For the record, I still won't donate to the Democratic Party, but I might consider continuing to support Boxer. She may not always do exactly what I want, but at least she has the guts to talk about her decisions.


  1. I have to agree with you on this one. At least Boxer is not afraid to talk to the people. And she usually has well thought out logical reasons for doing what she does. Feinstien on the other hand seems to feel she doesn't need to answer to anything.

    I have only given to individual candidates in the past and will continue that practice.

    The worst senator for CA, ever. One of the reasons why the state will be held back, until she is gone.
