Behold Barbara Boxer -- Healer of Worlds!

WHILE MOST OF HER FELLOW DEMOCRATS are trying their worst to save the country from Republicans, it is nice to know that Barbara Boxer has decided to Heal the Entire Planet if re-elected. Some things defy parody. Here is the complete text of a begging email sent by to the more deeply addled members of her constituency. At $1000 - $2000 a pop you might say it lacks the common touch -- except of course if your sole purpose in life is perfecting your asanas next to the pool in Tiburon. Ah, the Party of the Little People.

Ah, yes, veggie burgers and Barbara Boxer in a leotard perfecting her plow and down dog while the mantra "Bush Lied" leads all assembled to higher chakras. There's an exciting afternoon.

If they offered to take you off this mailing list for $3000, they'd stand to make a lot more money.

It is kind of sad, actually, to realize just how out of touch these people are. Reality, when it hits, if it hits, is going to land quite a punch on them.

the cost of the event is in the Republican range.

it's possible those with the money and values to be in attendance will benefit far more than those attending fundraisers for Republican candidates.

Yes, Marin is different from much of the US.

The self-righteous mockery of your posting indicates your mind may be as narrow, and harmful, as Bush, Cheney and Ashcroft.

Boxer may not be the greatest Senator, (nowhere near as eloquent and courageous as Robert Byrd of West Virginia). But she has done shown some leadership superior to many of her colleagues.

Do you know anything from personal experience about the healers you implicitly mock? They have helped a lot of people, not just the wealthy.
