Don't Call Me Ma'am - New ad from Carly

By Proof



Just a short (uh, vertically challenged, to you, Ma'am!) dissertation on the arrogance of one of the denizens of the Washington Swamp.

Some interesting notes from the Fiorina camp:

  1. I am praying we are seeing the end of Boxer's arroagnce and her career in politics. I'll wish her well, just not doing ANYTHING = political or otherwise - that affects our lives!

  2. A small side-note:

    As much as I detest Boxer and her political views, I'm not going to get upset at any member of Congress voting against any particular piece of legislation. With the way bills are constructed, by the time they come up for a vote they are either meaningless political statements which just waste time, or chalk full of so much pork and unrelated garbage that they do more damage than good for the country. I have no issue with any person in Congress voting 'no' to any piece of legislation with any provision they don't think is good for the country on the whole, regardless of their political views or if I agree with them.

    I don't like Boxer as much as, or likely more, than the next guy, but she gets a pass from me for voting down legislation, even if I would have personally supported it (which, given the above observations, is highly questionable). Moreover, I find it strategically questionable to highlight Boxer's fiscal restraint votes, given the mood of the country... but I'm not running Fiorina's campaign.

  3. "I find it strategically questionable to highlight Boxer's fiscal restraint votes" If Barbara Bouncer was also being as frugal on non-military spending, I might agree with you.
    Like most liberals, she's a big spender except when it comes to our military.
