Carly, we hardly knew ye!

Sink a company, sink a campaign... what's the difference?

Think Progress » McCain reportedly ‘furious’ with Fiorina, campaign adviser says she will ‘disappear’ from TV.
Today, McCain economic adviser Carly Fiorina bluntly stated that neither John McCain nor Sarah Palin were capable of running a major corporation (she said the same of Barack Obama and Joseph Biden). A top campaign adviser said Fiorina will be punished for her candid sentiments:
“Carly will now disappear,” this source said. “Senator McCain was furious.” Asked to define “disappear,” this source said, adding that she would be off TV for a while – but remain at the Republican National Committee and keep her role as head of the party’s joint fundraising committee with the McCain campaign.
Fiorina was booked for several TV interviews over the next few days, including one on CNN. Those interviews have been canceled.
Predictably, the Madame Defarge [not to mention Lafarge] of gender politics, Maureen Dowd, sinks her claws in as well:

Carly Fiorina, the woman John McCain sent out to defend Sarah Palin and rip anyone who calls her a tabula rasa on foreign policy and the economy, admitted Tuesday that Palin was not capable of running Hewlett-Packard.

That’s pretty damning coming from Fiorina, who also was not capable of running Hewlett-Packard.

When MoDo is good, she's very, very good, but when she's bad... you know the rest.

I guess McCain's just gonna hafta find himself another golden parachutist.
