Girl fight-Fiorina over McCaskill in a knock out!

OK, we know its puerile but every guy knows they loved a good girl fight in high school. Potential McCain VP and former business executive Carly Fiorina appeared on Meet the Press with Tom Brokaw and Democrat Senator and potential Obama VP Claire McCaskill (Missouri) this morning and we were treated to the middle age version of those high school chick brawls. The following is just a small sample of the butt whipping that our gal put on their gal.

Real Clear Politics has the transcript and it is a good read. Fiorina overwhelmed McCaskill with professionalism, facts and reason. Where Fiorina talked fact, McCaskill emanated the 2006 DNC talking points. As the video shows, Fiorina sounded like an actual business economist when the discussion turned to the economy and McCaskill sounded like the typical socialist Democrat, dividing the country by class and income with the same old class warfare that is the fundamental basis of the socialist Democrat movement.

We met Carly late last year at a small Q&A function for John McCain and we came away quite impressed. Although she has no political experience, Fiorina wouldn’t be the craziest VP choice (like, say, Geraldine Ferraro) and she brings a very articulate voice to the ticket. Fiorina explains Sen. McCain’s positions better than the Senator himself, mostly because she doesn’t replace topic specific English with the Washington speak that our nominee, their nominee and most of their respective surrogates routinely employ.

Carly Fiorina makes for a refreshing face and an interesting story. Her greatest significance is the vivid demonstration that it is indeed Republicans who are providing the fulfillment of the gender equity that we promised when we first confronted the Democrat’s entrenched opposition to women’s suffrage more than a hundred years ago. Unlike Gerri Ferraro, Fiorina earned her spurs in the bottom line business world, not the world of patronage in which Ferraro matriculated and is, to wit: the fulfillment of the women’s movement.

Carly Fiorina is most assuredly a person of interest. Stay tuned.

While I agree with this post, I wonder how our new Committeeman and Committeewoman would feel about nominating a pro-choice VP.

Great idea! Nominate the worst CEO in the history of Silicon Valley as VP!

I'm sure the liberals will overlook how HP underperformed the S&P 500 by 20% and the tech sector by 30% during Fiorino's tenure. They will be kind enough not to talk about the spontaneous parties that erupted among the employees of HP when she was shitcanned.

After Bush ran several businesses into the ground (and then the country) why would her poor background prevent the GOP from welcoming her with open arms?

Wow! What a one-sided argument! Fiorina really dominated! McCaskil was speechless!

or was that just your editing?

McCaskil's first husband is taking a dirt nap these days.

What's the matter here, Ted? You didn't recognize this Fiorino broad from when she ran Hew-Pack into the ground? Oh that's right she was sporting jet black hair and done up to look like that dame from Three's Company (the one with the samll tits, not that whore Somers), Joyce something or other, back then. Typical of you, Ted. Some bitch lightens up her hair, gets some Botox, flashes a little thigh, hits all the buzz words in a thirty second sound bite and you're hooked. Scheeze, man, get a grip on yourself. Yet I can see why your worship her, I guess. She single handedly almost wrecks a giant Corporation all for the sake of the glorification of her own ego, blames all the ills on others, and when she finally does get her ass thrown off the place (with a check for 21 mil in her pocket), say's "it was God's wiil".

Actually, I think anon 7:54 is doing a pretty good job of showing his own butt on that last post.

the democrats are at it again. They are trying to convince us they care about big corporations all of a sudden.

d women still catterwall about being victims that can't succeed even with the fact of Hillary's credible run for president, while r's actually overcome their "victimhood" and achieve.

Gee, maybe there's a lesson in there for other victims.

Republicans have the solutions that work in real time. democrats have the fairy tales - as Bill Clinton told us recently.

I'm trying to think of one democrat woman or democrat at all for that matter that actually ever worked in the private sector ever.

McKatskill sounded defensive, emotional and angry in a passive aggressive way, because her arguments were falling apart against the barrage of facts that the more professional and articulate Carly was able to throw at her.

Carly sounded more articulate than any politician - male or female - I've heard speek in, well....years.

Carly is presently, the only VP choice that actually made me sit up and take a listen. I was rivited to her on Meet the Press.

I know very little about her, but she thus far, I'm open to more. Someone who actually defended us and went after their underlying premise. The usual is to say some vague non committal bill clinton like parsing buffet.

She represents change from the traditional modern careerist politician.

She is a citizen politician that doesn't sound like we are recyling the same old same old.

The other choices have left me flat and bored. No sizzle and no steak.

She at least has some sizzle.

I also noticed - no pantsuits.

This cunt for Vice President? Are you shitting me? Have you all gone mad?

With all McCain's blubbering about the Imperial Federal Government controlling the salaries of CEO's, I wonder what he thought of Carly's golden parachute.

Getting millions for running a company in the ground.
