WashPost Down on Carly


For John, BLUFYou aren't supposed to believe Ms Fiorina is a real woman.  To be a real woman she would have to be a registered Democrat.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



This item—"The Palinization of Carly begins"—is over a month old, but still timely.  The author is Ms Teri Christoph, of Smart Girls Politics.
In a mind-numbingly banal screed in the Washington Post this week, columnist Ruth Marcus fired the first shot in the war we all knew was coming — the war against Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.  I call this the Palinization of Carly, whereby a center-right woman who is strong in her beliefs is belittled, mocked and minimized by the Left.

Ms. Marcus, a presumed feminist, insists this has nothing at all to do with ideology.  And then proceeds to lay out how Carly’s mere candidacy offends her.  This bears repeating, Ruth is offended that Carly Fiorina is running for president.  She is not at all offended that her candidate of choice — Hillary Clinton — has perpetrated massive coverups of Benghazi and her unauthorized secret email server.  The ability to run from her past makes Hillary a totes qualified and unoffensive candidate to Ruth Marcus.

Ms Christoph notes that Ms Marcus also dislikes Dr Ben Carson.

My question is why Ms Marcus is not cheering the fact that those Neanderthal Republicans are even fielding a female.  Or a person of color (maybe more than one—what counts as color?).

Regards  —  Cliff

Carly's unsuitability for office need not be expressed any more extensively, eloquently or clearly, than to recount the details of her failure as CEO of HP. After destroying 30,000 jobs on a failed bet on the strategic viability of PC manufacture, and destroying over half the market value of her firm in less than three years, she was rightfully fired, and has since been judged repeatedly as one of the worst CEO's in tech history.
