Someone needs to explain to Carly Fiorina that she does not speak for Governor Palin.
Here’s Ms. Fiorina accidentally revealing what the Hewlett-Packard people may have been thinking when they sent her packing (John McCormack, Weekly Standard Blog):
On MSNBC today, McCain surrogate Carly Fiorina said Tina Fey’s SNL performance as Sarah Palin was “sexist,” and Allahpundit sighs that it looks like we’re holding a “victimization pageant” for the second week . . . For what it’s worth, an informal poll of many of my colleagues found all the women liked the skit and several men said their wives/significant others found it funny as well. The McCain campaign should probably hold its fire to fend off actual sexist attacks.
On Sunday, a campaign adviser confirmed that Ms. Palin had, indeed, watched the “Saturday Night Live” skit from her screen at the front of the plane. “She thought it was quite funny,” the adviser said in an email response to inquiries, “especially because the governor has dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween.”
Once again, we see the difference between a hyper-political reaction and one from a real person – and all within the McCain-Palin campaign!
In the future, before the campaign pulls the sexist card – they might want to remember the views of the “victim” first. Follow Sarah’s lead, folks.
