Why Carly Fiorina is a Smarmy, Incompetent Lying Hack

A really great taken down of Carly Fiorina, McCain's campaign front woman, from DK's monitor:

and

McCain - See her statement last week that McCain never signed off on efforts to overturn Roe vs. Wade. THE TRUTH: McCain's own campaign website touts McCain's fervent support for, yes, "Overturning Roe v. Wade".
