Carly Fiorina Returns To Flackery After Being 'Disappeared'

What do I spy with my little eye, on the teevee split screen? Why it's disgraced Hewlett-Packard CEO - slash - Golden Parachutist Carly Fiorina, making a return to McCain flackery, a position she enjoyed until it became necessary to "disappear" her, to McCain's overall detriment, as he then had to rely heavily on the P.R. exploits of imperious, long-necked Sith Lady Nancy Pfotenhauer and Plaything Of The Women Of Cable News Tucker Bounds.

But now she's back, providing Fox News with the only segment of non-Bill Ayers content of the evening, by talking up McCain's plan to help homeowners in need by coordinating a complicated bit of policy choreography between the Treasury Department, Fannie Mae, and Freddy Mac.

It's a little surprising to hear Fiorina suggesting that this complex management task is something that McCain should be in charge of, since just a few weeks ago, Fiorina was saying "I don't think John McCain could run a major corporation." I guess the deprogramming worked!
