Remember 2008? Those halcyon days where there was discussion of a McCain-Fiorina ticket. Well, McCain ended up being quite thankful for that. Let’s start with the clip to the right, where Fiorina says that McCain wouldn’t be qualified to run HP. She says that
It is a fallacy to suggest that the country is like a company.
Of course, while this would also suggest that perhaps Fiorina doesn’t have the necessary experience to be Senator for such a large state as California, she’s not talking about that now. But, of course, there’s more. When the campaign turned to executive compensation, McCain came out swinging, saying that some of the golden parachutes were absurd and way too high.
Well, yesterday the duo were back at it. Oh, and the subject of that Fiorina comment came up:
She was permanently sidelined two months before the election when she told a radio host that Sarah Palin, McCain’s vice presidential pick, lacked the experience to lead a major corporation. She made the situation worse when she sought to clarify her remarks by adding that McCain and then-Sens. Obama and Joe Biden also were unqualified.
When asked about those remarks on Tuesday, McCain joked, “Did she say that?” Fiorina added, “I was making a general comment about all politicians, by the way, not John McCain specifically.”
Ahh, such fun times. Two unqualified people, together again.
