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.

I can't wait until I have enough swag as a political consultant to create this type of shizzle and sell it off to some candidate as movin the dial.  Yea, sure... nonsensical campaign. I thought she had a shot before.

RE: nuts

Sorry, Jerome, but John Boorman moved that dial 36 years ago.

Zardoz!

Thanks. It's a must-see for any Bad Movie Day.

She will not...

be the GOP nominee--it will be Tom Campbell, who is a more dangerous opponent.  The creator of this ad also created the Angelides "running backwards" ads in 2006, but Barbara Boxer is (and was) a much better campaigner than Phil Angelides.

well

the goal for her is to create a weird buzz and have the ad go viral. Now sure how that's going to help her beat Tom Campbell. It's weird but she's now really fighting against Chuck DeVore for second place.

 

Campbell should win this one with ease. Don't think that he can beat Boxer though he's likely the one to give her the toughest race.

Boxer?

That's a laugh. She does her own shopping. I've run into her at the supermarket up in Corte Madera. I wonder how many maids Carly Fiorina has? How many homes?

I've had an epiphany

This isn't a campaign to make people think Carly Fiorina could be a decent Senator, it's a campaign to make people think Carly Fiorina could be a decent CEO.
