Carly Fiorina doesn’t like Barbara Boxer, and she doesn’t care who knows it. First, Fiorina released a bizarre, hallucinogenic, nearly 8-minute-long attack ad that portrayed Boxer, her opponent in California’s Senate race, as a kind of horror-movie monster. Next, the Republican Senate candidate openly mocked Boxer’s hairstyle, cattily calling it “soooo yesterday.”
Now Fiorina has released a new, more sophisticated ad—one that still hinges on sneering at the Senatorial veteran. It begins with a grainy clip of Boxer asking Brigadier General Michael Walsh to call her “Senator” rather than “M’am”—”It’s just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title,” she says.
Then Fiorina appears onscreen. “28 years in Washington, and Barbara Boxer works hard for a title?” she asks. See the video for yourself below.
