Must not mention that Hillary Clinton is female

ONE is the former CEO of Hewlett Packard. The other is the former US Secretary of State.  They are powerful women with eyes on the most powerful position in the free world.

Yet somehow the run for presidency of newly-announced Republican candidate Carly Fiorina and Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton has been reduced to a “weird girl fight”.

Those are the poorly-chosen words of CNN host Carol Costello overnight whose foot in mouth moment when announcing the pair’s White House bids added, sadly, to a long list of sexist remarks aimed at female politicians.

After Fiorina’s announcement that she was running, Costello said the Republican candidate had positioned herself as an ”attack dog” to take down Clinton.  “She’s sort of setting herself up to be Hillary Clinton’s chief attack dog,” she said.  “And Republicans are embracing her. So, it’s turning into this weird girl fight almost.”

Hillary is a wicked witch just without the pointed hat and black cat and she hides her broom

Don't you normally refer to someone as someone else's attack dog if they work for the first person and is used to take down opponents?
So, it seems that Carol Costello's real sin is being too stupid to know what she is talking about.

She "identifies" as a female if there is an advantage to be gained. Most of the time she exists in her natural state, a lying weasel.

Is there any genetic proof that she is really female? Seems like an ongoing ad for LGBTIQ vote. Pity that heterosexuals hold the majority vote.

Past behavior is an indication of future behavior. Good ol' Carly laid off 30% of HP's employees (out of 300,000. If elected she will likely cause a 10% increase in unemployment. She also drove HP's stock down 50%. Carly, stay away from our economy. We do not need a failed CEO to be a failed president.
