Carly, finish that sentence…

June 3, 2010 at 6:54 am 5 comments

One of the great things about living in California, is the pre-election advertising.

As a new treat, one of these ads features a photo of our ex movie star governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, one that morphs into the queen of eBay bad feedback, Meg Whitman, but it’s not an improvement. And, we also have an old hippie chick running for a senate seat, paying for a big part of her campaign with money she received as a golden parachute.

Her ad goes “I’m Carly Fiorina and I ran Hewlett Packard”, however she neglects to include the three words that would make it a bit more correct.

Those three words (that preceded her being fired) are “Into the ground”.

She also talks about creating jobs, but omits the part that lists what the country was that she created jobs in, when she took her company “Off Shore”.

Here’s a hint for you, it isn’t the U.S.A.

    She didn’t do too well at Lucent either, and that was before HP in 1999

    The thing about Carly is it’s all about Carly. She talks about her secretary-to-HP CEOhood as a personal rags-to-riches story, as though HP was designed to just be an Oprah moment and not a real entity on whose success thousands of people depended. As CEO she was a bust. HP became a bust. And thanks to her a lot of people suffered. But do those details matter to our Carly? No. She’s got hers. So, Q: What part of this scenario does she not understand? A: All of it.

    All I know is that I was suspicious of the woman and as it turns out with very good reason. Our state is already in bad enough shape. Who is more qualified to run it into the ground even further?
