Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

Well That Didn’t Take Long


And Carly Fiorina goes under the bus:

“Carly will now disappear,” this source said. “Senator McCain was furious.” Asked to define “disappear,” this source said, adding that she would be off TV for a while – but remain at the Republican National Committee and keep her role as head of the party’s joint fundraising committee with the McCain campaign.

Fiorina was booked for several TV interviews over the next few days, including one on CNN. Those interviews have been canceled.

A third source said “it was another bad day for her, and important people are mad because the timing is horrible… But I would not necessarily buy the Siberia storyline.”

Fiorina has forced the campaign off message before. In July, she told reporters women often express frustration over the fact many health insurance plans cover Viagra but not birth control medication.

Not shocking, but what about that cryptic “disappear” comment?

  1. Their version of “under the bus” is very different than others – because they still keep ’em hanging around. Like Phil Gramm was supposedly thrown away, only to keep popping up again.

  3. Hey, where’s that picture of the bus? Looks like Amsterdam to me. I wonder if Carly was smoking something when she got thrown under the bus (or perhaps driving it?)

  4. Wow, it doesn’t take much to piss them off. Still, what she said was pretty damaging and gave our side some good fodder, though it’s funny that the McCain camp are trying to spin it by calling her comments “Biden-like.”

  5. Well, now Lady Rothschild can follow Carly on the banned list for calling middle class Americans ‘rednecks’ in an interview with Campbell Brown today.
