Boxer steams Rice

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-California), the lone senator with enough balls to challenge the Ohio vote, challenged Condoleezza Rice yesterday during the confirmation hearings for Rice's appointment as secretary of state.

"I personally believe," Boxer said to Rice, "that your loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell this war, overwhelmed your respect for the truth."

Rice's response: "'I have never, ever, lost respect for the truth in the service of anything." Except, of course, in the service of her husb—er, the president. (Rice, who is unmarried, recently referred to Bush as "my husb—the president").

Ms. Boxer, keep those gloves on—and watch out for the right jab.
