It's such an unexpected pleasure when we're given the opportunity to get a theme going around here.
First up, McCain campaign spokeswoman Carly Fiorina -- who was unceremoniously fired as CEO of HP back in 2005 -- is now being banished to the rhetorical Phantom Zone after commenting yesterday, without so much as a hint of irony, that neither John McCain nor Sarah Palin would be capable of running a company.
I wonder if the McCain camp gave her a 45-million dollar golden parachute with her walking papers.

Meanwhile, one of Hillary Clinton's most fervent supporters and a member of the DNC is going to announce today that she's throwing her support behind the McCain-Palin ticket. Lynn Forester de Rothschild (and no, I'm not making that name up) says she feels that Barack Obama is arrogant, elitist and doesn't understand the problems of average people.
Forester is married to international banker Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and splits her time between London and New York.
If this were an episode of The Office, Jim would stare blankly into the camera right about now.
That said, you can go ahead and get on with your day. Mrs. Forester de Rothschild's comments aren't meant to be taken seriously by anyone and are for entertainment purposes only.
