At The End O'May 2015, The Dumbo Field Is Eight And Another Eight Have Their Fingers In The Air (Or Wherever)

The Dumbo 2016 Clown Show just grows and grows. The sole Dumbo woman in the race is Cara Sneed (Carly) Fiorina.a so-called high-tech whiz with a checkered career at both Lucent Technology and Hewlett-Packard. Of course, an inflated claim to business success poses no problem for the Dumbo faithful. If this is a (fair & balanced) festival of mediocrity, so be it.

Fiorina Talks. Iowa Swoons. Will It Last?
By The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin)

—Front-page head, The New York Times

The folks went wild for Fiorina.
In Iowa, they’d never seen a
More perfect GOP Athena—
Not Palin, in that same arena,
Nor Eva, down in Argentina.
Though called by Jesus Christ’s subpoena,
She’s snarky as a trapped hyena.

Her rivals, though, think folks should know
How she got bounced as CEO. Ω
