Ted Cruz to name Carly Fiorina as his running mate. Oh yeah, THAT will help. Update!

Courtesy of HuffPo: 

Presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) intends to name former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate if he succeeds in winning the GOP nomination, multiple sources reported Wednesday. 

Cruz’s move is seen as a last-minute gambit in hopes of shaking up the race and blocking front-runner Donald Trump, who easily swept five primary states across the Northeast on Tuesday. 

Personally I have no idea how appointing one of the most anti-female female candidates in history is going to help Cruz at this point, but hey when you are desperately grabbing at anything to stay afloat even a rusty anvil looks promising at first glance.

I am so sure that Carly Fiornia's attacks on Planned Parenthood and lies about what she saw in those doctored videos is really going to go over big with those soccer moms. Assuming that soccer moms is still a thing of course.

You would think he might have learned the lesson from John McCain when he made a similar mistake back in 2008.

Speaking of Sarah Palin you know that somewhere she is pressing her thighs together and muttering to herself that soon it will be time for Donald Trump to reward HER for her dedicated ass kissing, just like Cruz is rewarding Fiorina.

"Second time's a charm America, this time around my brand new elderly sugar daddy and I are going all the way!"

Update: It looks like Palin has decided to try and make herself part of the news day by mocking Ted Cruz for his basketball gaffe in Indiana:


Damn speaking of having a shelf life hasn't the expiration date been reached on this tired old basketball trope of Palin's?

After all she was as much of a basketball star as she was a hunter, or journalism major, or book author.

Meaning, you know, not.

    1. And so much for that pact with Kasich. I thought part of it might be an agreement to be each other's running mate whichever gets the nomination.

      Well, that's out the window now. Can't wait to see what Kasich will do now. I'm sure he still feels he can win a brokered convention. And *if* he does, poor widdle Teddy is thoroughly screwed.

      Kasich said this weekend that he was 'vetting' a VP. Cruz just beat him to the announcement. The whole thing is so stupid. They can't win the nomination, but they are going to give any Republican lots of free TV time before the convention. Pitiful. The GOP is pitiful.

      @11:27 am.
      I would politely disagree that Fiorina is 1000 times more qualified than the Wasilla Idiot.

      Fiorina's only claim to fame was being CEO of HP back when she made horrible business decisions, laid of many thousands, and had the stock price crash hard.

      Worst of all was forcing HP to buy Compaq for 25 BILLION at a time when Compaq was already dying from trying to ingest a hopelessely indebted Digital Equipment, a true relic of history even in 2002.

      I have worked in IT for nearly 30 years now, and know many HP engineers and managers.

      Not one person at HP that I knew thought Carly was anything but a flaming narcisistic psychopath, who knew nothing about technology, and was fired for doing a terrible job.

      Fiorina may be smarter than Palin, but that's like saying syphilis is better than ebola

      I'm sure that was part of the reason Cruz beat him to the punch.

      Cruz is trying to imply that he chose Fiorina because he is pro-woman, yet choose Fiorina because she is the most anti-woman woman he could choose. It's also a ploy to try to lure women back that might be thinking of voting for Hillary because Drumpf is such a misogynist.

      At any rate it isn't going to help him at all, just give Drumpf two targets. Oh, goodie. Now we get twice as many insults and hateful rhetoric.

      It's true, Lucy, that the Einsteins at c4p did in fact have long discussions in 2011 about presidential candidate Sarah Palin nominating her putative VP in the absolute certainty that she'd get the nomination, and we know how that turned out.

      IMHO it's a stupid, gross and desperate act.

      She said it was a rule. I understand the "common sense" argument. I don't know that it's as obvious a bad idea as you, but it might be. Frankly, I think it's largely irrelevant.

      If a candidate advised who would be in his entirere cabinet, you would still only have one candidate.

      CEOs oftentimes have people it is understood will come with the proposed CEO. Happens all the time.

      I agree it's a desperate act. I also think Carly is a lousy choice. That's different than against the rules.

    It's hilarious that Cruz thinks he's Obama. Does he think he's in a movie or something. He is one delusional ass hole. Fiorina, what a joke! She thinks she's all that. Yuk!
    I still can't get over the optics of that stage before the announcement.
    Also, Trump is the WORST teleprompter reader EVER! See, the deal is that Obama has made it look so EASY all these years that amateurs like Trump thinks that he can do it too.

      Of course, Dullard doesn't like anyone with brains or with any backbone that might defy him so Carson would be perfect for that. Plus if they think Fiorina will bring the women's vote to Cruz, wouldn't the same thinking imply Carson would bring the black vote to Drumpf? Isn't that how the GOP think? Perhaps Drumpf can find some young Latino from Texas to bring him the youth vote and the Hispanic vote?

    We get it Sarah honey, you played high school basketball. Lots of people did, but we don't all live in the past.

      Exactly, her high school days are probably the most important in her life. Sheesh. Most of move on. She must think her basketball period is “iconic" and thus important to all of us. Only in her head is she a legend!

      You assuredly can determine that Sarah Palin came from a small town. Lauding her high school basketball days - which when researched lend her nothing as she was not a star player!

      Give me a friggin' break! She truly is an idiot and white trash!

    I thought Canadian Cruz was suppose to be the smart one, no one voted for Carly when she was running for senate or president, he thinks she is going to "add" to the ticket as VP?

    Saw the campaign signs during her speech, at first glance I thought it was "Crazy Carly" instead of "Cruz Carly"!!!

    It certainly beats TrussTed :)
