CNN: Waiting to be interviewed by affiliate KXTV Wednesday morning, Fiorina is clearly heard taking a dig at her rival for the California Senate seat, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California.
"God, what is that hair?" a laughing Fiorina said, while quoting a friend who had recently seen Boxer on television. "So yesterday."
Oh, how I do love these open mic moments, from George Bush calling that New York Times reporter a major league a-hole to Joe Biden dropping the F-Bomb! So many of today’s politicians are so heavily scripted that you have no way of knowing who the hell they really are. When a live mic catches them, it provides a true glimpse into what is really on their minds.
From this open mic moment, I gather that Fiorina has little respect for Barbara. I can now easily see Fiorina gleefully approving that Barbara Boxer Blimp video!
No doubt Boxer will feign righteous indignation and pretend to take the high road. I just hope Fiorina doesn’t fall into that silly faux apology game and instead mocks Barbara some more. Now wouldn’t that be honest and refreshing!
