Good News for the GOP: Palin Not Experienced Enough to Fail Big Time

Many are trumpeting Carly Fiorina’s latest statement as a case of a Republican attacking one of their own, but it’s actually an off-handed compliment:

Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, a co-chair of the McCain presidential campaign and a chief economic surrogate for the GOP presidential candidate, said in a radio interview this morning that Sarah Palin doesn’t have enough experience to run the Silicon Valley-based company Fiorina managed — but ”that’s not what she’s running for.”

You know who else didn’t have the experience to run Hewlett Packard? Carly Fiorina. She was fired in 2005.

Palin also doesn’t have the kind of “experience” required to run Lehman Brothers, AIG, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Bear Stearns either — thankfully.


Update: Palin using a personal Yahoo email account to conduct official state of Alaska business is unethical — this according to pillars of ethics who hacked into her personal email account — but just to make sure there were no violations of ethical standards, of course.

Hacking email is a federal crime — as these boneheads are about to find out.
