...or trying to.

tl;dr

Does she advocate trimming spending substantially, and closing the wealth gap slightly?

If not, she's wasting her time.

Imagine the havoc that a Tea Tard could cause if the GOP placed one in her position.

Well, glad someone's doing it.

Another great thing about Mikulski, she has a really thick Baltimore accent.

It probably won't happen... unless you're sitting down.

/Or she was, like, on stilts or something.

Just for the accent alone, I will trade any one of my Senators for her.

My dad has, for about 20 years now, been trying to find a picture of Senator Mikulski speaking to Senator Bill Bradley.

// probably would have had to use the telephone
// for the other 2 of you that own Mickey Cucchiella's "Diary of a Short Man" comedy CD, you know the last track, "Weed in Heaven" ends with Mick imitating her
// "Dis is Barb'a Mikoolski a eu-ess, Senator, and up'ere on'a Hill, we're praw pot!"
// don't know enough of the phonetic alphabet to Bawlmerize that more

This is good news to hear that there is SOMEONE who is able to cut through the cutesy grandstanding BS. Yes, I won't get into complaints that will lead into accusations of false equivalence, but it feels like the last few decades have been marked by gossip news style reporting where being able to put on a show and make is the most incendiary statements are the most desirable traits in an elected official. Add in the horserace aspect, and we have political news divorced of political ramifications.

So imagine my surprise to see someone say "look, we went through this with a fine-toothed comb as did a member of your caucus. Please, do check this bill for any iffy loopholes or tricks, but I can assure you what you see is what you get and you should vote for this bill if you support it and vote against it if you oppose it." Sure, it isn't sexy, but damn if it doesn't deflate the argument instead of escalating it into the story the people in it for the attention want, and a lack of drama helps get the sausage made.

You don't have a sense of how short she really is unless you've met her in person.

She is pretty much exactly what a D&D dwarven female elder should be.  Minus the beard.

/Also proud she is my Senator.

Compare her to Sen Cruz and the HERO tag becomes very well used!

With retardation like that, its little wonder the word "hero" gets abused.

"Hero" is now defined as "person I personally favor".

I like her ethos

We cannot always guarantee an outcome, but we can guarantee an effort.
Always be clear about: "What is the objective we seek?"
Goals should be specific, immediate and realizable.
Just move it.

Do American journalists not have a defintion for "liberalism"? They seem to have no working definition at all.

How many trillions in additional debt have we racked up while she has been on the committee?

Neither party is paying the bills.

As a 5'6" guy, I resemble that remark.

I also learned how to use condescension as a weapon. Who needs size when you can make much larger people feel like they're inferior to you? It helps that I'm actually fairly smart- I can go into 'smart mode' in a way that takes people along with me, or I can go into 'smart mode' in a way that makes them feel really stupid.

\'Cause little people know, that little people fight. We might look easy pickins', but we got some bite!
\\Yes, I'm drunk.
\\\At least a little.

Was in a Timonium restaurant a while back when Sen. Mikulski came in and took the booth next to Ms. Stumpwiz and me.  FYI, she ordered Sonoma Cutrer.
