From the Interational Herald Tribune:
WASHINGTON: Republican John McCain has maneuvered himself into a political dead end and has five weeks to find his way out.
From The Telegraph:
Carly Fiorina, who rose from a secretarial position to become chief executive of the technology giant Hewlett-Packard, made the gaffes in two separate interviews.
First she was asked by a radio host – who had just praised her own business record – that since Mr McCain “thinks Mrs Palin has the experience to be president … do you think she has the experience to run a major company like Hewlett-Packard?”
Miss Fiorina replied: “No, I don’t. That’s not what she is running for.”
Asked later in a television interview about her remark, Ms Fiorina said: “Well, I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation.”
Miss Fiorina has since had planned television appearances cancelled.
From the Washington Post:
NEW YORK — Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) defended his attacks against Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) during his appearance tonight on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and suggested he might pick a fictional character from NBC’s “The Office” as his vice president.
Marking his 13th appearance on the show, McCain parried with Stewart on questions ranging from his Secret Service detail to his relationship with President Bush. The senator joked that he decided to announce his vice presidential choice on tonight’s show: Dwight Schrute, the assistant to the regional manager (or “assistant regional manager,” if you ask Schrute) in the Scranton branch of the faux Dunder Mifflin paper company.
