The White House discovers it has no teeth

This is what happens when you treat people badly for years. When they turn, they fucking turn...

WASHINGTON — The White House fired back Friday at Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer's verbal slap at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, calling the California Democrat's caustic comments about Rice's family life "outrageous."

Boxer lit into Rice on Thursday with bitter diatribe during a heated line of questioning before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee looking into Iraq policies. At one point, Boxer turned to the broad question of who pays the ultimate price for war. Rice has never married and has no children.

"Who pays the price? I'm not going to pay a personal price. My kids are too old and my grandchild is too young," Boxer said. "You're not going to pay a particular price, as I understand it, with an immediate family. So who pays the price? The American military and their families."

Boxer hasn't apologized, won't apologize and despite the best efforts of Fox, there is no one calling for her to do so. Fox, being populated exclusively with troglodytes, failed to mention that Condi's numbers are way down and this exchange hasn't helped. Further, the White House could have said they fully supported Boxer and it wouldn't matter as they are now, functionally, powerless. No one is listening to them and in fact the vast majority of this country has nothing but outright contempt for this President and his party.
