Carly Fiorina: The Republicans' Hired Hillary Attack Dog (Seriously)

Carly Fiorina: Nice attack dog you got there, Republicans.

It was hard not to notice from the start of Fiorina's campaign that she was going after Hillary Clinton in an outright vicious way. And she hasn't let up. And she's not going away.

Why? Digby (of the venerable Hullabaloo blog and Salon) has caught on to her:
The other day when the donor lists to various campaigns were revealed many noticed an odd curiosity about Fiorina’s donations. A pro-Cruz super PAC controlled by millionaire Robert Mercer (who had written checks for 5 million to Cruz’s effort) sent $500,0000 to Carly Fiorina’s super PAC. How often does it happen that a PAC for one candidate helps one of its rivals in a primary campaign? But New York Times reporter Amy Chozick cleared up the mystery when she tweeted:
Fiorina finance chairs told me supporters of other candidates have thrown them $$$ to have a woman in race attacking HRC.
Now that makes sense. (And it also explains why the Koch Brothers invited her to their recent billionaire meet-and-greet.) The Republicans understand the minefield they are going to be walking if Clinton should become the first woman nominee for president of one of the two major parties. It will be helpful to have a woman on the trail making a slash and burn case against her without incurring the wrath of Clinton’s woman supporters. In her closing statement at the Kiddie Table debate that’s exactly what she promised to do:
Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi, lies about her emails, she’s still defending Planned Parenthood and she is still her party’s frontrunner. 2016 is going to be a fight between conservatism and a Democratic Party that is undermining the very character of this nation. We need a nominee that is going to throw every punch, not pull punches. Someone who cannot stumble before he even gets into the ring.
I don’t know who she’s talking about there, but I’d guess his initials are J.E.B.
You've got that right, Digby. I wonder, how many Republican candidates will she pummel on behalf of her party? If she's doing the Kochs' bidding, maybe everyone except Scott Walker?

But know this: She'll never be a successful candidate for anything, and she won't stop slamming Clinton as long as the money flows. Stay tuned. And read all of Digby's column. There's a lot to unpack there.

Fun reality check below. She may be slamming Hillary, but one day not so long ago, she got the Morning Joe treatment. hahahahahaha. Ouch:

Steve Ratner added some cred to this takedown. And, she had it coming. How soon we forget, if GOPers out there ever really knew Carly Fiorina like Californians like me know her. High-flying, fast-flopping loser, with a yap in her voice. Perfect for her new job.
