Martha Coakley, Meet Carly Fiorina

On the left, Martha Coakley, U.S. Senate candidate for Massachusetts.

On the right, Carly Fiorina, U.S. Senate candidate for California.

If you don't see the resemblance, you might want to watch Carly Fiorina's demon sheep ad, which in its startling ineptitude makes us wonder if Carly has hired Martha's media consultants:

It's hard to know where to start:

(1) Using the word "men" as a swear word.
(2) Comparing the people of California to sheep.
(3) Making up the new slur FCINO (fiscal conservative in name only).

Here are the sort of comments FCINO is getting on its Youtube Channel:

"OK, this is really Tom Campbell's creation to make Carly look like an idiot. Right? It CANNOT be for real."

"How about your girl's silence of John McCain supporting all those bailouts? Is HE a FCINO?"

"As a registered Republican, I'm happy to say that I just determined who I'll vote for, and it won't be Carly Fiorina!"

"Reward incompetence. Vote for Carly. "

"Were drugs involved in making this?"

"Nice job, Carly Failorina."

But it doesn't stop there, you can go to Carly's new web site and submit your FCINO sighting report:

"If you have seen a FCINO in the wild, submit your detailed report below. By working together, we can protect taxpayers against future FCINO violations."

By the way, if you go to "Support the Cause" button on the Fiscal Conservatives in Name Only website, the money goes to Carly Fiorina's campaign. I'm confused. Does that mean Carly is the candidate for people who are fiscal conservatives in name only?

Am I the only one to notice:

(1) FC is Carly Fiorina's initials spelled backwards (she brought the demons into this).

(2) Fuchino Fiorina rhymes (never call your opponent a name that rhymes better with your name than his).

(3) FCINO could also be pronounced F'ckin' No (I personally might vote for a F'ckin' No candidate).

(4) Wait, wait. I've discovered that the gray haired man you can almost but never quite see at the end of this video is in fact, wait for it, Carly Fiorina herself. She's recovering from a tough dose of chemotherapy to battle breast cancer. But instead of building an inventive and inspiring story around a heroic personal struggle ... demon sheep.

Still, Carly hasn't called her opponent Tom Campbell a rape monger just yet, a slur Martha Coakley tried to put on Scott Brown. So, Carly, if you are going for the worst run campaign of 2010 award, you still have a ways to go.
