Demon Sheep: The Sequel

If you thought Demon Sheep was bad, here's Carly Fiorina's latest, Boxer Blimp. H/T Ben Smith:
Given the way the Senate works, it's extremely dishonest and misleading to say that Boxer has only passed three bills. No, she's not the author of the major Appropriations and Authorization bills, but that doesn't mean her amendments to such bills, or language she wrote for other Members' bills, shouldn't be counted as legislative accomplishments. Here's one example: if Carly Fiorina is to believed, the tuberculosis section of Henry Hyde's Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008 doesn't exist. Let's also remember that it's not just the passage of bills that matters, but also critical actions like stopping drilling in ANWR or speaking out against the Taliban four years before 9/11.
Anyway, I am so glad I don't live in California.
