The most enjoyable thing about the recent economic flareup in the Presidential campaign (and there are so many) has been watching Carly Fiorina give McCain a one-two punch.

Punch 1:

asked by a St. Louis radio station today whether she thought McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin could run a big company like her, Fiorina flubbed her answer.

“No, I don’t,” Fiorina replied. “But that’s not what she’s running for. Running a corporation is a different set of things.”

Later on MSNBC, she tried to explain herself, but managed to make things worse. “I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation,” she said.

Punch 2:

Republican ticket mates John McCain and Sarah Palin Monday blasted corporate executives who leave their company with a “golden parachute” & and pledged to “stop multimillion dollar payouts” to CEOs, seeming to forget their own top economic adviser Carly Fiorina walked away with $45 million, including a $21.4 million severance package when she was dismissed by Hewlett Packard in 2005.


My guess is you won’t see Ms. Fiorina much from now on.
