This is Rich, or something.....

The woman who coined the phrase "Bitch is the new black," is now being called sexist by Carly Fiorina.  Oh, she also said that Palin wasn't qualified to run HP, the company she used to run. Which is to say, take her opinion with a grain of spun salt.

I would like to amend the sentence to read, "...the company she used to run poorly." Most of us who work in technology have a poor view of Carly Fiorina, and while I agree that Palin couldn't run HP, I retort that Fiorina couldn't run HP, either. She laid off 15,000 HP employees in 2002-3 and shareholders failed to get any value from the HP-Compaq merger. On the day that Fiorina was finally ousted by the HP board, shares of HP went up something like 10%. Was she the victim of sexism, or just her own incompentence?
