First Shot Fired In California Hairdo Electoral Battle

Oh! It is so on! Carly Fiorina, who I am predicting to be Sparklefave 2010 and maybe even 2011, had barely, barely even been an official primary winner for, like, five minutes, and already she's making fun of Barbara Boxer for something very important: her hair. These are fighting words:

The video shows Fiorina checking her Blackberry and engaging in small talk with the producers and others off-camera. Finding out fellow California Republican Meg Whitman had decided to visit Sean Hannity tonight, Fiorina repeated several times that she found the decision “bizarre,” because “you know how he is… Sean Hannity is not an easy interview, you know?” She didn’t specify what specifically about a Republican candidate going on Hannity would result in a difficult interview, but dropped the subject for a while to readjust her mic, and then starting up a new topic: her opponent and, more specifically, “God, what is that hair?” Continuing to mock her, she adds, that it’s “sooo yesterday.”

OMG, there is no fury like a hairdo scorned! I'm going to side with Babs on this one. As you can see in the recent photo above, Boxer's hair isn't all that noteworthy; it's fine, if uninspired. Frankly, if I were Carly (OMG, I just had to pinch myself out of a reverie!), I wouldn't go throwing stones at other people's coiffures. She's in for a world of hurt.

You are my hero. This got my day going in a way that it might not have otherwise.

Barbara- get thee some better skin product!

Speaking of hair, I have two words. Meg. Whitman. Eeeew.

if i can recall, Carly has a hairdo that looks like it was cut in a concentration camp.

there are issues and there are issues - someone had to carry the torch for condi - and why not a failed CEO of Hewlett Packard who drove the company into the ground and walked away with a multi million dollar golden hairnet

Do we need to send Babs a tiny bottle of jungle red nail polish, or will she defend her hair? You know how Democrats are.

I am also very concerned about the Whitman/Brown hair-showdown. He just has to run a chamois over his head and Meg's got a "That Girl" flip to deal with. No level playing field there.

@Fran: I know! Moisturize godammit!

Distributorcap: that was post chemotherapy hair, so that doesn't really count.

Christopher said...

But she's still rocking a pretty awful haircut. IT was actually CUTER post chemo.

Am I the only one that was a bit startled by the big collar/bow thing on Carly's outfit?

Frank said...

Considering what she was wearing at the time, Ms. Fiorina has no room to talk about someone's hair!

Karen Zipdrive said...

How I wish just one Republican male would say the same about a Democratic male's hair-do.
Fiorina sets the womens' movement back 40 years.

Clearly, I can't trust Fiorina's judgement on anything.

She would well be within her rights to call out Boxer on her really bad (but not Miers-bad) eyeliner application (the phrase "looks like she used a Sharpie" was uttered at Chez Samael last night).

But the hair? Oh, Carly. Motes and beams, dear lady, motes and beams.

Hannity is a tough interview if you are a McCain Republican. Hannity is a giggling pushover if you are a Palin Republican.

If it starts with the hair already, pretty soon it will be shoes and accessories and after that, Armageddon.

Chemo is going to seem like a dream vacation to Carly after this thing is through.
