Huffington Post reports that McCain spokeswoman and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, appearing on a St. Louis radio show today, said that Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) was not qualified to run a major business — but that it didn’t matter:
QUESTION: Do you think [Sarah Palin] has the experience to run a major company, like Hewlett Packard?
FIORINA: No, I don’t. But you know what? That’s not what she’s running for. Running a corporation is a different set of things.
Yesterday, Fiorina declared that a Saturday Night Life spoof of Palin was “very dismissive of the substance” of Palin and thus “disrespectful in the extreme,” and “sexist.” “She has a lot of substance,” Fiorina said of Palin.
