BuzzFlash's GOP Hypocrite Of The Week

Hey, it's Friday, which means it's time to check out BuzzFlash's "GOP Hypocrite Of The Week." As always, it's a grueling process to narrow the selection to just one Republican hypocrite, and this week BuzzFlash went with former Hewlett-Packard CEO and current financial advisor to John McCain, Carly Fiorina.

Buzzflash chose Fiorina after she stated this week that none of this year's major-party candidates for president and vice president could run a large company.

An excerpt:
Fiorina was the CEO of Hewlett-Packard Co. for over five years, until she was canned over controversial business moves. Some blame her and her decision to buy Compaq for HP's downfall. Though some market happenings may have partially vindicated Fiorina, it's clear from reports at the time that she was not trusted by board members or Wall Street.

After failing in the private sector, Fiorina turned to politics. Now she's using her pundit status to tell us who can and cannot run an American business. Perhaps she could include herself on that list?
You can read the rest at and see a historical list of BuzzFlash's other worthy selections.
