Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Well, This Could Be Embarrassing...

Under Carly Fiorina, Hewlett-Packard sold millions of dollars of equipment to Iran in violation of the spirit of the sanctions.

They used an offshore subsidiary to carry out the deals so it would appear to comply with the sanctions, but this is just Enron-type crap.

Printer ink isn't going to make Iran a global power, but the hypocrisy of her position on sanctions now is pretty galling.  It won't make a difference in the GOP primary, but it could hurt her should she get the nomination.
