Carly Fiorina downs sinister Democrat hot air balloon

Hugely-inflated Barbara Boxer menaces California

The team driving Carly Fiorina's bid to become Republican senator for California is apparently still relying heavily on mind-altering substances during its campaign brainstorming sessions, if this pop at Democrat incumbent Barbara Boxer is anything to go by:

Fans of Fiorina will recall that there was more than a trace of lysergic acid diethylamide in her broadside against "demon sheep" Tom Campbell:

While Fiorina has now evidently dealt with her "increasingly bizarre fixation on farm animals", as Campbell's camp described it, we can't help feeling that in the wake of the Boxer hot air balloon shocker, "Carly for California" is planning to pop some 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine and treat voters to something truly conciousness-shifting. ®

We were tickled by Fiorina's assertion that "only in America could a medieval history major, law school drop-out and a full-time receptionist become the CEO of one of the largest companies in the world and have the privilege to run for the US Senate". Bloody good job too, we reckon, even if she did achieve all that "with a smile".
