Carly Fiorina Drops Out. World Continues to Spin.
Yes, we’re all so very shocked. Shocked that a pinch-faced woman whose entire soul just vibrated in the Key of Hate … who cynically lied and misrepresented the CMP videos to try to snatch up the batshit crazy anti-abortion traffic crumbs on her way to … a show on Fox? A guest blogger post on Operation Rescue?
… that this angry, resentful, dim-witted destroyer of lives and shareholder value, is no longer with us.
(SFX Cue: Sad trombone - “wah … wah … waAAAAAHHHHH”)
Here’s (part of) her statement
This campaign was always about citizenship—taking back our country from a political class that only serves the big, the powerful, the wealthy, and the well connected. Election after election, the same empty promises are made and the same poll-tested stump speeches are given, but nothing changes. I’ve said throughout this campaign that I will not sit down and be quiet. I’m not going to start now. While I suspend my candidacy today, I will continue to travel this country and fight for those Americans who refuse to settle for the way things are and a status quo that no longer works for them.
OK, reading the (probably sock-puppeted) comments on her Facebook post, the whole purpose of this becomes clear. The commenters are pushing her for the VP slot. The conniving strategy of Fiorina starts to come into focus: the GOP is going to be running against Hilary. To defuse the “gender gap,” the GOP is going to need a woman on the ticket.
Thus, to a ruthless harpy like Fiorina, the thinking would be: “All I have to do is stay in the race long enough to establish some decent Q rating with likely voters, and I’ll be on the short list for VP!”
