Laughing at Barbara Boxer

See also

Hollywood director David Zucker, known for comedy classics Airplane and the Naked Gun series, satirizes Senator Barbara Boxer in a video that spoofs her exchange with an Army general in June of this year. Boxer famously interrupted Brigadier General Michael Walsh during his testimony in front of a Senate Environment and Public Works hearing in June when the general referred to her as “ma’am”. The senator seemed to take offense at the respectful term, used by all military in deference to civilians, and directed the general to call her senator, as she “worked hard for that title”.

Zucker said in a post at Andrew Breitbart’s Big Hollywood website that “I was motivated to do something on this after I saw the video of Barbara Boxer interrogating Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh. I remember immediately feeling embarrassed that a member of Congress would treat an officer of the U.S. military like that. And doubly embarrassed that back in the early 90’s I had contributed to Barbara Boxer’s campaign. Let this video be my apology.”

Zucker’s spoof is hilarious in its absurdity, with everyone from boy scouts to surgeons asking to be addressed by the title they’d worked so hard to attain. Look for the stars such as Clint Howard (appearing as a senator), Ed Ames (Indian chief) Jack,Scalia (doctor), and others.
