Senatorial dim bulb

I know some of the locals love Sen. Barbara Boxer. After watching her in committee meetings, I am embarrassed she represents me in the Senate. She seem to be a very dim bulb. Here is an example by David Gelernter:
Yet up on Capitol Hill, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had been called before a Senate committee. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) was one of those who questioned her. Boxer was obnoxious and frightening. She made reference to the Holocaust, offensively. More important, she demonstrated that she doesn't know U.S. history, and she implied that the American people don't either. And she raised an alarming question about contemporary politics. We often hear from Democrats that President Bush's policy in Iraq makes no sense. But how can it make sense to the Barbara Boxers of Congress if they can't understand the explanation?
Full story here.

The entire article is discredited by its opening passage. The replacement and trial of Saddam, twenty years too late, is a fantastic achievement, one that we needed to play no part in if we hadn't propped up his regime. And the constitution, a sham though it is given the US' facts on the ground, was won by the Iraqi people against the colonial occupier. Nice try, though.
