So, what’s wrong with Barbara Boxer’s coiffure?
Nothing as far as I can see. It works for her. What more be said? But, as Digby noted, Carly is recovering from chemo and, apparently, lost most of her hair. I chalk the remarks – as foolish as they were – to female insecurity and a bit of envy for Barbara’s thick tresses. Catty as heck, but maybe even Barbara would forgive them.
The thing that someone else noted, that may be more salient, is the question how someone who was so deeply involved in the tech industry, and “audience aware,” could have been oblivious to a microphone?
Don’t forget, bystander, she was fired from HP because she did such a lousy job. Two screw-ups with technology: one macro and one micro.
this is what lousy looks like.
forget senator, she should run for president. so should clarence thomas.
I think what’s most ironic is that Fiorina used to have a very similar hairstyle herself, before the chemo. Check it out: http://styleofpolitics.blogspot.com/2010/06/carly-fiorina-inadvertently-made-candid.html
Well, it’s sorta choppy looking and kinda over processed but that bleached blonde look fits California, right?
She looks a bit like Hillary, who seems to be growing her hair out (which I personally think makes her look older and frumpier but I’m not her stylist). The cut on Boxer is flattering; she looks active, competent, not overly worried about her appearance. She might want to think twice about driving around with the windows down to avoid the tossed look, but otherwise I think she looks good.
