Sen. Barbara Boxer, an appalling scold from California, wasted no time yesterday in dragging the debate over Iraq about as low as it can go - attacking Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for being a childless woman.
Boxer (pictured) was wholly in character for her party - New York's own two Democratic senators, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton, were predictably opportunistic - but the Golden State lawmaker earned special attention for the tasteless jibes she aimed at Rice.
It was as if Condoleezza Rice avoided motherhood so that she would not have offspring to send to Iraq.
Just when you think the Democrats can’t go any lower, they do. Senator Boxer just proved it.
Fasten your seatbelts, it will be a long bumpy ride for the next two years.
