Running Hewlett-Packard

Good bitchy writing is a joy to read, and no one does it better than Maureen Dowd. She’s most entertaining when she’s tearing into Hillary Clinton, but this takedown of Carly Fiorina and Sarah Palin is as pithily masterful as anything she’s written:

Carly Fiorina, the woman John McCain sent out to defend Sarah Palin and rip anyone who calls her a tabula rasa on foreign policy and the economy, admitted Tuesday that Palin was not capable of running Hewlett-Packard.

That’s pretty damning coming from Fiorina, who also was not capable of running Hewlett-Packard.

Super touché. I’d so love to be a fly on the wall at Dowd’s kitty parties.
