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.
