Fiorina Update: Palin Not Ready to Run a Major Company

AT blogged yesterday about the very thin skin of Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of HP and current supporter of John McCain (see below). 

Fortunately for us, she's back. Speaking to a St. Louis radio station today, Fiorina told the truth about Sarah Palin: 
Q: Do you think [Sarah Palin] has the experience to run a major company, like Hewlett Packard? 

Fiorina: No, I don't. But you know what? That's not what she's running for. Running a corporation is a different set of things. 
Yes, indeed. Running a company is different from being a politician. But both require a deep knowledge of issues and ideas as well as a grasp of national and international affairs that Palin has never had.

That fact alone is sufficient to disqualify her as a serious candidate for high office. Moreover, the fact that John McCain made Palin his choice is telling evidence of his own lack of judgment.

Asked about that remark on MSNBC, she made the same unprompted assessment of the GOP presidential nominee. "I don't think John McCain could run a major corporation."

We won't be seeing any more of Carly. That kind of truth-telling doesn't go over too well on the Straight Talk Express.
