The Ostroy Report

Ay Carly! Meeeoooowww!



What do California Senate candidate Carly Fiorina and "Maude" star Bea Arthur have in common? The same goofy 70's hairstyle. But that didn't stop the sharp-tongued former Hewlett-Packard CEO from mocking her Democratic opponent, Sen. Barbara Boxer: "God, what's with that hair? Sooooooo yesterday!" The gaffe was made Wednesday as Fiorina was prepping for a television interview in Los Angeles and thought the mic was off. Catty is as catty does...

Fiorina should know better than to attack someone's appearance. Her own short, choppy hair is the result of chemotherapy following a bout with breast cancer. If anyone should be sensitive to personal groomimg issues it's her. But Fiorina, whose snarky comment recalls her brash HP days, is guilty of the standard Republican hypocrisy. Yes, Republicans can even be hypocrites about their own hair. Politically, they're nasty, derisive and divisive. Their motto? "Do as I say, not as a I do." Which explains why Fiorina feels comfortable criticizing Boxer's hairstyle when, in my opinion, Babs' 'do looks a helluva lot nicer than her own. But Repubs are colossal hypocrites. That's what they do. Kinda like 90's Crusaders Newt Gingrich, Bob Barr, Bob Livingston and Henry Hyde crucifying Bill Clinton over marital indiscretions as they're bangin' their own mistresses. They apparently never got the "Republicans in glass houses shouldn't thrown stones" memo.

Come November, voters in California will have a choice to make: a 5-term Congresswoman and high-ranking 3-term U.S. Senator, or, a catty former corporate CEO (of dubious performance) who seems more concerned about her opponent's hairstyle than two wars, the economy and the BP oil spill. Fiorina's comments about Boxer weren't just about hair, they were harebrained...

    It would be a travesty if this woman was elected. She destroyed the lives of many HP workers, you think she wouldn't do the same to Californians.

    And honestly, how do you get to make comments about someone's hair when you're wearing that DRESS???

    time to remind people that only civil-toned comments will be allowed through here. My intern spots the vile crap in 2 secs, doesn;t read the rest, and never sends on to me. They will never be posted here, so those who write this stuff are truly wasting your time. But feel free to continue if it makes you happy and you're that lonely that you knowlingly spend time writing grabage that you know no one will ever read or publish. Just know they're deleted once they reads the first word or two...

    Snarking about Carly's hair and dress only brings the discussion down to her low level and distracts from the real issues.

    Carly wants to run on her record. So keep slapping her with the fact that HP stock dropped 60% while under her tender loving care and only resumed climbing when the news went out that she was forced to resign as CEO. Then we remind the voters that she was illegally conducting surveillance on those she deemed her corporate enemies - something that should awaken the slumbering Tea Baggers worried about Big Brother government.

    After this, it's up to Boxer to run a good campaign.
