‘Who can say HOOOORAYY the loudest?’: Barbara Boxer won’t be running for re-election in the Senate

Unhappy with the prospect of serving in a Senate where Harry Reid isn’t in charge anymore, California Democat Barbara Boxer announced Thursday she will not be running for re-election in 2016.

The left-winger – there’s no sunlight between Boxer and fellow Golden State Sen. Dianne Feinstein when it comes to liberal causes – made the announcement via a YouTube video.

She denied that her age – 74 – had anything to do with the decision, according to the Washington Post.

“Some people are old at 40, and some people are young at 80,” Boxer said. “I feel as young as I did when I got elected.”

Given that she doesn’t seem to have learned much in those 20-odd years, that’s understandable.

The announcement came as a surprise to official Washington surprise announcement. Check out House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s reaction to being asked about Boxer’s plans at a news conference Thursday.

Considering it’s California, the chances of Boxer’s replacement being anything but a Democrat are pretty well nil. That didn’t keep conservatives from celebrating, though, and doing a little dreaming, too.
