Exiled Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina proved her political mettle last year when she served as a "top economic advisor" to John McCain, a job that's kind of like being a pastry chef for a diabetic, admittedly. But Fiorina made some news herself on the campaign trail: there was the time she said Sarah Palin wasn't qualified to run a company, and then the time she accidentally made John McCain take a question about flaccid penises.
These incidents were widely seen as gaffes, or "Bidens," but I'm starting to wonder if Carly Fiorina doesn't have some sort of secret blueprint for politics that only she can understand. For example, see the screenshot above? That is Carly Fiorina's new website, because — having done so well helping John McCain win the White House — our gal C.Fi is possibly maybe challenging Democrat Barbara Boxer for her California Senate seat.
Oh, it gets better…
"It's Day and Night," the bright red Web site reads. "It's Dogs and Cats. It's Good and Bad. It's Carly vs. Boxer."
"It's the most singularly awful political website I have ever seen, and I am including all the old, basic HTML websites that were the rage 10 years ago," conservative blogger John Hawkins of the site RightWingNews.com said in an e-mail to CNN.
Well yes, of course it's awful. Don't you see? As a businessperson, Carly Fiorina understands the importance of branding.
And this is the perfect representation of her brand: being incredibly bad at everythingTM.
