WOW so the LA Times isn’t a fan of Boxer:
On the Democratic side, we find that were no fans of incumbent Barbara Boxer. She displays less intellectual firepower or leadership than she could. We appreciate the challenge brought by Robert “Mickey” Kaus, even though hes not a realistic contender, because he asks pertinent questions about Boxers “lockstep liberalism” on labor, immigration and other matters. But we cant endorse him, because he gives no indication that he would step up to the job and away from his Democratic-gadfly persona.
