Is Barbara Boxer Crazy?

I like Senator Barbara Boxer. When one of my senators screws up, it is usually the other one. But one day after Senator Hillary Clinton received great press for listening to Peter Daou, Sen. Boxer is getting slammed across the blogs for supporting Joe Lieberman even after he announced his his Independent Democrat Plan B to circumvent the will of Democratic voters. Boxer is on the front page of Daily Kos -- with an announcement that updates will be posted. But the bigger problem for the Senator is Jane Hamsher...

By appearing out-of-touch on the Lieberman issue, Boxer has made one hell of an angry constituent out of Hamsher. Remember her classic "Clueless" post? It looks like there is more to come. In discussing Boxer's planned visit to help Lieberman despite his Independent bid, Hamsher says:

If Boxer wants to come to Connecticut and spend some of her political capital on Rape Gurney Joe, she better bring a Brinks truck.
If the Senator wants to know what a real bad situation looks like, it is this:
Well I'm off to start calling the ladies of Connecticut Choice Voice, I'm sure they'll be there when Boxer shows up to see to ask a few pointed questions. And that will be me with the camcorder.
