The above is from the Daily Kos (except the “oh, really?” part).
I beg to differ with the reliably lib rag.
I think Carly landed some punches and precursored what the summer might look like …
Here’s what caught my eye … why I think it’s important … and, a prediction.
First, Fiorina had the ‘nads to take a public interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC … talk about taking on un-friendly fire.
I’d like to see Hillary do the same with, say, Megyn Kelly on Fox.
Specifically, I liked her riff on equal pay …
The interview concluded with her being asked about equal pay for equal work.
Fiorina said, “Of course I support equal pay for equal work. And that’s why, in 1963 when a law was passed guaranteeing that if a woman is being discriminated against in the workforce purely because of her gender she should take every advantage of the law.
But I also know this — a seniority system, which exists in the federal government, that allows a man to watch pornography all day long in the federal government, and earn the same pay, pension, and benefits as a woman sitting next to him trying to do a good job, that is not equal pay for equal work.
And the seniority system, and the federal government that promotes that seniority system, and the unions, as well, they’re not willing to talk about that.
So, before the federal government or Hillary Clinton, who, by her own measures, is not paying women equally in her own office, nor is President Obama, before they lecture others, maybe they ought to look into their own offices, or look into the seniority system in the federal government.” Source
Cut right to the chase … a woman addressing the faux war on women … and spotlighting Clinton’s special-interests hypocrisy.
Geez, Hillary … if the problem is so important to you, why don’t you fix what’s under your control instead of just jabbering?
Oh yeah, I forgot: the unions – especially the government unions – ante in to keep things as they are.
The broader point: Fiorina is emerging as a formidable attack dog who can say things that the men candidates can’t.
That could make things interesting this summer.
Prediction: Fiorina will get the GOP VP nomination (probably going toe-to-toe with a shirtless Martin O’Malley) … and will cause Hillary plenty of headaches.
