California Senate Race: Carly Fiorina, Climate Change and an Idiotic Ad

California Senate Race: Carly Fiorina, Climate Change and an Idiotic Ad

The spot features video of Boxer saying, "One of the very important national security issues we face, frankly, is climate change." Then Fiorina appears on the screen and somberly intones, "Terrorism kills, and Barbara Boxer is worried about the weather. I'm Carly Fiorina. I ran Hewlett-Packard. I chaired the external advisory board for the CIA. . . . I'll work to keep you safe.

"It only took half a minute for Fiorina to demonstrate she is not a responsible adult. First, she brazenly misrepresented Boxer's remark. The senator noted that climate change is one national security challenge; Boxer did not indicate it was more worrisome than terrorism. Second, to dismiss concern about climate change as nothing but fretting about the weather is, to put it mildly, dumb.
