How much do we love Carly Fiorina, let us count the ways. In this post, we have three, because she went after three of our favorite targets over the weekend at a Koch Brothers summit, most likely in their underground lair…
On Hillary Clinton
“Mrs. Clinton’s track record is one of failure.”
On Jeb Bush
“We have festering problems in Washington D.C. … the power, the weight, the complexity of government is literally crushing the potential of this nation. Given those festering problems for both Republicans and Democrats over decades, I think my question to Gov. Bush is… would be why do you think you are the Bush who can change that?”
And, of course, on the media…
I always find it fascinating the media tends to gravitate toward stories of money that funds conservative causes. I don’t see big newspaper articles about George Soros or Tom Steyer. The point is that the media doesn’t like one kind of money but is OK with another type of money. I think everyone ought to play by same sort of rules. It’s one thing for Democrats to complain about corporations getting engaged in politics, yet they never have a problem with unions in politics.”
That last part is a perfect example of how Carly Fiorina is so good. That is a common point that is made on the right, but instead of repeating it by flailing her arms around with her hair on fire just to appeal to the base, she expressed the point in a way that people from outside the base – the people not inclined to vote for us (or vote at all) that we need to vote for us – can understand and listen to.
Republicans have one way of doing things. Carly Fiorina don’t care.
Carly Fiorina’s, the Republican party’s honey badger.
