"Carly will now disappear"

A few months ago I was incredulous that the McCain campaign had appointed as one of its top economic spokespersons Carly Fiorina, someone who is most infamous in the business and tech world for being a heck of a failure. It is sort of the political equivalent of hiring Ryan Leaf to be your starting quarterback right after he flamed out of the NFL.

So it is almost no surprise after she called both Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin unqualified to be a CEO (along with Barack Obama and Joe Biden) that they now appear to be disappearing Ms. Fiorina.

You'll remember that McCain leaned on Fiorina for economic advice, and she was even called "McCain's economic brain". As Bush showed us with Vladmir Putin and Michael Brown, these guys are really bad at this.
