Carly Fiorina, You're Fired!

In completely predictable news, former CEO Carly Fiorina has been "disappeared" by Senator McCain's campaign after publicly doubting his qualification to do the job she used to do for Hewlett-Packard. As I wrote yesterday, Fiorina had only stated common sense, but I concede that she should have anticipated how people would interpret her words. All I want now is for some reporter to ask a McCain spokesman or surrogate whether it's now the official position of the campaign that, yes, the Senator certainly could run a corporation if he wanted. It would be even better if Senator Obama, or any other candidate, would come forward and admit that, "No, I couldn't run a corporation, because you need these and those academic qualifications and this kind of background, but that has nothing to do with being President!" because that would make the McCain campaign look all the more like idiots.

Sammy, I think the word you might've been looking for is "disavowed", since the phrase, "has been disappeared", doesn't sound grammatically correct to me (at least).

I mean "disappeared" as in "made to disappear" as in what the Chilean government under General Pinochet did to dissidents, which is why one protest group there called themselves "the mothers of the disappeared." You're welcome for the vocabulary and history lesson.
