Carly Fiorina Depicts Opponent’s Death in New Attack Video!


Insane, Extravagant Video for Crazed Former HP Head and Receptionist Depicts Death of California Senator Barbara Boxer

By Joe Bodolai (c) 2010 All rights reserved

A new attack video posted on YouTube by an obviously megalomaniacal California Senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina has gone so far over the top and over the edge of decency and taste by depicting the death of her rival. Fiorina has hired a production company with a budget that could likely solve California’s debt crisis and created a video whose Tim Burton-inspired effects and message are inflated with the noxious methane of her ego and her values.

There is little to say. See for yourself. Then please comment. I am out of words about this so I want to hear from you. Also, you must read John Gabree’s excellent blog for much more: http://www.impracticalproposals.com/

    Umm, you’re kidding I hope?

    A cartoon balloon with Boxer’s face crashing in the ocean seems pretty mild to me. If this were the Left, they would just show a video of Fiorina and then you would hear gunshots…

    I doubt many people think that Fiorina is going to actually capture Senator Boxer, fill her with helium, smack her with a giant hand, and then watch her careen into the ocean, do you?

      The only hot air is Fiorina’s own. And yes, depicting the Capitol building blowing up and her opponent’s fatal demise is over the top. Not the kind of reasoned thinking one expects from a Senatorial candidate. The balloon is obvious filled with Fiorina’s methane breath.

    Fiorina doesn’t murder Boxer with this ad. She just mortally wounds her own credibility in a video that is childishly manipulative, clumsily edited, and just plain ineffective. (The video is so bad in fact that I’m tempted to think its maker secretly supports Boxer.) Let it be noted that Fiorina was fired from H-P for reputedly being an arrogant, tyrannical CEO who didn’t listen to or work well with others — “fireballs” don’t necessarily know how to get things done, all the more true in a collaborative setting like politics. Now she’s all smiles, an aw-shucks “drop-out receptionist” with a multimillion-dollar severance package wanting to reinvent herself yet again as California’s savior. I don’t write this as a Boxer fan — I’m not — and Fiorina no doubt has many accomplishments and strengths (although complete honesty and *true* humility are evidently not among them). But she simply didn’t make the case why she would be better at the job. All politicians can, and do, say they want to spend our money “wisely.” And then they vote for billion-dollar-a-day wars, for cutting the taxes of the mega-wealthy while tripling the national debt, and/or for preventing overstuffed public sector bureaucracies from firing unneeded or incompetent staff…. The special interest money in politics, whether from defense contractors, big oil, agribusiness or unions — the limits on which were just removed by a preposterously partisan Supreme Court — infects and corrupts both parties. And as for the video’s criticism of Boxer’s measly three bills, the number of bills one introduces that get signed into law is not the measure of good political representation. Working effectively with diverse colleagues to legislate the will of the majority while protecting the minority should be the point of the exercise. You have to be able to work with others. Just being another smug, resume-building member of a hypocritical, obstructionist voting bloc is also not enough — that’s all Fiorina would likely be as a junior Republican senator. Perhaps Boxer should be replaced, but Fiorina has to make a better, less manipulative, more mature case for why she should go to Washington instead. “I want to help small business” … “We need less hot air” …. blah, blah, blah. What’s your plan to reform your own party, Carly? Politician, heal thyself.

      Wheh. Now dat’s a mouthful.

      Thanks for your great comment. I changed the headline in order to avoid the confusion that I perhaps thought this was successful.

    The Media responds:

    MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann: The Worst Person in the World

    So…to prove we can trust her with our money, Carly has produced a seven minute candidate for the Oscars, a very short subject that features a Golem with the face of Barbara Boxer flying over California…She concludes her piece with such touching visual imagery that it can’t help but make us recall the Challenger disaster. For depicting the wrong image at any wrong time, Carly Fiorina is…

    At the Movies with Joe and Pete: No Joe, Tim Burtonish?…This masterpiece is a tribute to Monty Python…only it’s not funny…and about as convincing as the success she had with HP.

    Sean Hannity: Wow, our freedom of speech still lives. I couldn’t have said it any better. And, Carly, what a cute hairstyle.

    Final Jeopardy: Politics and Corporations

    Answer: She said “There Is No Job That Is America’s God-Given Right Anymore” and then she outsourced more than 18,000 US jobs.

    Question: Who is Carly Fiorina, possibly the next US Senator from California?

    And now, breaking news from the fact-based world…from Media Matters:

    Finally, from the Wonderful World of Yiddish

    Under C: Definitions

    Chutzpah:

    Original definition: a kid murders his parents and then pleads for mercy in front of the judge because now he’s an orphan.

    New definition:

    A woman, as Chairman of the Board and CEO, screws over a large corporation under her direction, and then blames it on the men who make up the board of directors.

      Great comment! Thanks. I was going to say Monty Python too but Tim Burton sounds more expensive as far as animation goes. The animation and production company should get some work from this, but Fiorina will only be made to look like a mean-spirited stupid person foiled by her own ego and some smart guys who oversold her on a video.

        You need to get a sense of humor. Oh, too late, I guess.
