My pal over at Brave New Films sent me this little message just now:
Is Carly Fiorina really Sarah Palin? Despite the disaster that we recently saw in the Gulf, Carly's continued support of offshore drilling makes it difficult to tell one from the other. We can't let Carly Fiorina drill the California coastline so we want to spread the word about the REAL Carly.
Kill, baby, kill: They're killing our marine life, plant life, our coastlines, and even her fellow Americans who suffer the deadly consequences of climate change, pollution, and oil-laden dying oceans.
Hey, Carly, how's that BP disastery, deathy thing workin' out for ya?
More on Carly here on the Facebook page, "The Real Carly".
Brave New Films has just released a new video: "Carly Fiorina is a Job Killer".
Despite touting her business experience, cringe-worthy Tequila Shot Carly laid off 30,000 employees while she was CEO of Hewlett-Packard, and yes, she shipped the jobs overseas. How can Carly make the claim that she will create jobs? Well, maybe it took a few more shots to convince herself.
Hear some of the voices of those she fired, including Susan Walsh who went from a comfortable life to living off of food stamps:

Gosh, Carly, you've made me rethink everything I ever believed in! After seeing you so loosened up, in such a wackyzany mood, being such a party girl, and ingratiating yourself so sincerely and endearingly to the Latino community, what can I say?
No really, what can I say?
I am suddenly so utterly convinced now that you care about Hispanic voters that I am questioning every liberal belief I ever had ever ever.
How could I have been so wrong about you, about the GOP?
I am now unwedging my tongue from my cheek.
The Times chooses Boxer
Re "Boxer for U.S. Senate" Oct. 4
Thanks to The Times for your completely detailed endorsement of the reelection of Sen. Barbara Boxer.
Please watch the word "strident" in describing her unless you use it correctly. Strident is defined in the dictionary as "harsh in tone; loud; urgent."
Boxer has been stridently urgent in her career-long fight to protect California's environment. She has been stridently loud in the fight for women's reproductive choices. She has been strident in promoting civil rights for all Californians. She has been strident in trying to find fair answers to immigration dilemmas. She has been stridently urgent in giving veterans like me the help and respect we have earned.
Best of all, Boxer was strident in her vote against going to war in Iraq.
Your endorsement omitted one excellent example of Boxer's courage and good judgment: her vote against the use of force in Iraq in spite of tremendous pressure from the Bush administration.
If more had followed her example, we might have avoided the loss of thousands of American lives, hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives and the loss of a trillion dollars.
Hard to decide whom to vote for:
In the race for governor, Whitman, a billionaire who has rarely voted and has spent $140 million on this race, against Jerry Brown, the original frugal politician who has put in his time in state and local government.
In the Senate contest, Carly Fiorina, who took a huge payout from Hewlett-Packard after laying off tens of thousands of workers as she encouraged outsourcing jobs overseas, against Boxer, who has worked tirelessly in the Senate for California.
Sheesh, really, this takes a lot of thought …
I find it hypocritical and slightly amusing that Fiorina opposed the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court because Kagan was an "unknown quantity and lacked experience as a judge."
It is for this reason that I cannot vote for Fiorina: I find her an unknown quantity, and she lacks experience as a senator.
A new Reuters/Ipsos poll in California finds Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) leading challenger Carly Fiorina (R) in the U.S. Senate race by four points among likely voters, 49% to 45%.
In the race for governor, Jerry Brown (D) has a seven-point lead over Meg Whitman (R), 50% to 43%.
Keep it up, Barbara and Jerry!
Just for fun, a rerun:
