Lying Liar Carly Fiorina Does Not Like Being Libeled Like A Common Sarah Palin
Carly Fiorina lying about a thing is unremarkable. What IS remarkable about this huffy, puffy, dare we say SHRILL exchange between Ms. Lies-A-Lot and CNN's Chris Cuomo is how spitting mad her persona gets when anyone suggests that perhaps her constant lying about Planned Parenthood videos (which don't exist, at least not the ones SHE talks about) could ever have consequences. That just maybe a person might have heard her constant blabbering about LIVE BABY PARTS, decide to shoot up a Planned Parenthood while reportedly shouting "NO MORE BABY PARTS," and then tell the judge he did it because he's a "warrior for the babies."
How could Carly's rhetoric have anything to do with that? And besides, remember that time "everybody" ("everybody" being "Congresswoman Gabby Giffords," but to be fair that was before Giffords was shot in the head) said it was Sarah Palin's fault Gabby Giffords got shot in the head, and then it wasn't Palin's fault after all, said Sarah Palin? This is just like that, and it makes Fiorina REAL mad:
Remember Sarah Palin? Sarah Palin was somehow responsible for the murder, or the attack, on Gabby Giffords. It turned out that wasn't true EITHER.
Hmmm. But WAS it true? Let's ask this lady.
But let's back up to see what led Carly to invoke "SARAH PALIN LIBELS!" in her own defense. Chris Cuomo asks an obvious question:
Do you feel any sense of regret about how you characterized what was going on at Planned Parenthood after the attack in Colorado? Because of what the man said, which seems as though he was influenced by some of the rhetoric that was coming out of you and others that painted a very ugly picture and an unfair one, about Planned Parenthood?
NOT THE OBVIOUS QUESTION SHE WANTED, CUOMO. Carly does not like that one bit, no siree.
Oh, please, really, Chris? Nine videotapes have come out about Planned Parenthood. It is very clear what they have been doing. And in fact, Planned Parenthood several weeks ago made a quiet little announcement that they would no longer accept compensation for the sale of what they call fetal tissue. That’s about as close to an admission as you can get.
Look, what happened in Colorado is a terrible thing. This guy is a deranged murderer, and I hope he is put away for life. It may be that we should be classifying that as domestic terrorism as well, but that has nothing to do with the truth of what is going on at Planned Parenthood. And this is a typical leftwing tactic ...
BLAH BLAH BLAH LIBERAL MEDIA GRRR ARGH. It's nice that she thinks maybe "pro-life" terrorists should be called, you know, terrorists. But it's so not her fault:
CUOMO: The videos were edited. You know that.
FIORINA: I actually don't know that! [hemming. hawing. gibberish.] There have been reports that say they're not edited!
CUOMO: Of COURSE they were edited. ("Everybody knows this, you fucking assfaced liar," he did not add.)
FIORINA: It's AMAZING to me that we're still having this conversation!
Yes, well, maybe it is because Carly Fiorina won't stop lying about it, even though people are dead now because SOME people out there are saying lies about how Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts like pumpkins on the side of the road, even though everyinvestigationhas turned up NO wrongdoing on Planned Parenthood's part.
A few seconds later, SO MAD, BRO CARLY says, "Let's be VERY careful about what we're saying," because the legal definition of "libel" is saying shit Carly Fiorina doesn't want to hear. The interview goes on and on like that, with Carly sniping here and there about how Chris Cuomo really should watch those videos (that don't exist) and how he's a journalist who should know better than to call her a Big Lying Carly on national television.
And that's too bad, because Carly Fiorina is a lying liar who lies. The videos are bullshit, and she won't take responsibility for it. And those were just "surveyor's marks" on Sarah Palin's map.
Christ, what an asshole.
