Journalists Rejoice!

Carly Fiorina is a candidate for the Republican nomination for president. She may be as good as Sarah Palin in the use of language as a sledgehammer. 

Palin (or her writers) came up with some doozies:

“The government has ‘death panels'”

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a nuke, is a good guy with a nuke.”

“How’s that hopey changey thing workin’ for ya?

“We say keep your change. We’ll keep our God, our guns, our constitution.” 

“More background checks? Dandy idea, Mr. President…we should’ve started with yours.”


From Fiorina: 

“Like Hillary Clinton, I too have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe. But unlike Hillary Clinton, I know that flying is an activity, not an accomplishment.”

“When men cut jobs, they’re seen as decisive. When women do, they’re vindictive.”

“A merger is hard to pull off under any circumstances. It’s harder when everybody is against you.”

“I’m not a professional politician, I’m a problem solver.”



Stay tuned to see how the journalists and late night comedy hosts riff off what the candidates say. At least with Fiorina, we have a bright bulb compared to the former gun-toting Alaska governor.

    The photo interview was moving, and leaves me thinking about more recent families in our country torn apart by war. The ripples of war can be a tsunami for some families even today, here and massively in the war zones.

    As for Carly, one of the reasons her board of directors fired her was her hiring of private detectives to investigate board members. To the best of my knowledge (which is limited), she was never a candidate for another corporate job after her departure from HP.

    Sorry Rick but I truly believe either Carly or Sarah (or Mitt or Scott or Ben) would be better than the current bunch we have in Washington AND California.. And really, why did you make the snarky "gun toting" reference regarding Palin or for that matter, anybody living in Alaska? Who ya gunna call when you come face to face with a hungry bear in Alaska? To be precise, she is not a former gun toter, she is a former governor who has and uses guns.
    I need to either give up your blog or exercise. They both get my blood moving…
