A Reader on Carly Fiorina

A reader emailed me the following in response to my posts on the repellent McCain surrogate Carly Fiorina. Apparently there are depths to her continued pollution of America that I hadn't explored.

Your assessment of Ms. Fiorina's appearance on Meet the Press didn't go far enough to expose her for the fake she is. If she said the words, "I'm a business person" or "as a business person" one more time to somehow set herself apart from politicians I would have thrown something at the TV. What a fraud. She was never a numbers person. Not ever. Your excellent 10 points didn't even hit on her days at Lucent. There are tens of thousands of people who used to work at Lucent and HP who would form a powerful block of voters who would NEVER vote for any ticket she is a part of. Interview some past employees who worked for her. She's ALL style and NO substance. She is one of the CEOs that personally and professionally thrived on the backs of so many 'displaced' workers'. She's an originator of the spin culture she now so comfortably promotes. Tom Brokaw caught her in her baseline hypocrisy - stating surrogates shouldn't be listened to....ick. I felt like I needed to take a shower after listening to her bs her way through that interview. She is ruthless, self-aggrandizing and self-promoting. The truth is irrelevant to her. Please keep up the pressure to expose her for what she is.

Thank you.
