  • The best bad campaign ad ever? Relive Carly Fiorina's glowing-eyed demon sheep video.

    The Week ^ | 5/4/15 | Ben Frumin
    Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina is running for president. This will be her second bid for office — in 2010, she tried and failed to win a Senate seat in California. And in the process, she released one of the most blissfully bad campaign ads in recent memory. Watch it if you haven't. Watch it again if you have. It's that good. And bad. The gist of the video is that Fiorina's primary opponent Tom Campbell (whom she eventually crushed by nearly 35 percentage points) is a "fiscal conservative in name only" — a wolf in sheep's clothing, if you...

    Carly’s Night by RICH LOWRY September 17, 2015 Carly had a terrific night. Her handling of the Trump insult of her looks was pitch perfect, understated, but pointed. Her answer on Planned Parenthood was moving. She was a little too defensive on her HP record–understandably since it’s a vulnerability–but counterpunched effectively against Trump in that exchange. Her worst moment was when she made it obvious that Christie had gotten under her skin with his dig that average workers could care less about her and Trump arguing about their business records. Her concluding statement was very canned, but well done. I’d...
  • The Demon Sheep of Zion (California's U.S. Senate 2010 Primary)

    The Demon Sheep of Zion It is time to say openly what Jewish Republicans in California whisper quietly: throughout her years in public life, Carly Fiorina never associated demonstrably with those supporting a secure and safe Israel with united Jerusalem as her capital. Quite the contrary: everything she has written, down to her memoirs, points otherwise. Everything she has said – the curious way and timing of her pronouncements on the Middle East – points otherwise. Even her close associations, as with the Reverend Jesse Jackson , augur otherwise. There is something unseemly in Ms. Fiorina’s posturing on Israel in...
  • Fiorina uses Scott Brown's mug in Web ad, without endorsement or permission

    WASHINGTON — Is Scott Brown, the newly minted U.S. senator and Republican Party savior, backing Carly Fiorina for Senate? The answer is no. But you might be forgiven for thinking he is after watching Fiorina's new Web ad featuring Brown's mug in one frame, then hers in the next, with the caption, "Thank You Massachusetts. Now on to California. Join the Path to Victory." Weeks after Fiorina took the Web by storm with the "demon sheep" video castigating rival Tom Campbell for not being fiscally conservative enough, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO and first-time political candidate is again stirring controversy with...

    Carly Fiorina has a problem. She accuses one of her opponents of supporting taxes on the Internet when she has a long-held record of supporting the same. ABC News 7 investigates her history supporting Internet taxation going all the way back to the year 2000. They missed her saying she supported Internet taxes in late 2009 at the Web 2.0 Conference.

  • The Worst Political Ad Ever? This Fiorina Offering Has Got To Be Up There (editorial)

    National Public Radio ^ | February 9, 2010
    This is what apparently led to the Fiorina campaign running the demon sheep ad. In it, she lays the blame for California's financial situation on him, calling him a FCINO -- a Fiscal Conservative In Name Only. But it's more than a simple, ordinary attack ad. It seems to go way over the top, bizarrely so, as if, well, it was the result of some bad acid trip. I really urge you to watch it yourself (and please avoid operating heavy machinery as you do so): I think when I first saw the ad I stared at the screen without...

    Greetings from Demon Sheep Central, where US Senate candidate Tom Campbell says that the Demon Sheep gave him his best online fundraising day ever. OK, so not that Campbell has ever been a fundraising dynamo. Plus, as Team Fiorina spokesperson Julie Soderlund points out to Demon Sheep Central: "His best day of fundraising could be $5 since he just got into the race 3 weeks ago!" But still, Tom's Big Day was a riff off an attack ad by Team Fiorina ripping him. Well, as we told you earlier, Team Campbell wisely saw the Demon Sheep wave cresting and got...
  • Fiorina Ad Attacks GOP Senate Rival as a "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" Using Demon Red Eyes - Video

    Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | February 5, 2010 | Brian
    Here is video of a Carley Fiorina web ad attacking her Republican rival - Tom Campbell - as a "Fiscal Conservative in Name Only" (FCINO). The ad asserts that Campbell is trying to pass himself off as a fiscal conservative, but that he is really a "wolf in sheep's clothing." Both are running for the GOP Senate nomination in California to oppose Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer. To drive that point home, it shows sheep grazing, but mixed in among the sheep is a man in sheep's clothing with "demon red eyes." . . . (VIDEO)

By Mike Zapler Posted: 02/04/2010 06:12:16 PM PST Updated: 02/04/2010 06:28:52 PM PST WASHINGTON — If all press is good press, Carly Fiorina's bizarre campaign video depicting her opponent as a red-eyed demon sheep is a blockbuster hit. If widespread mockery matters, maybe not so much. Whatever the case, the former Hewlett-Packard chief's 31/2-minute Web video attacking Tom Campbell in the Republican Senate primary has gone viral, drawing more than 119,000 views on YouTube, rising to the top of Twitter topics and spurring commentary on dozens of political news...

    Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina stood by her now infamous “demon sheep” ad on Thursday morning, arguing that the online video, widely panned by pundits but also widely viewed, did what it was intended to do – challenge the underpinnings of primary opponent Tom Campbell’s candidacy. “Look, what I like about the ad is first, it’s funny, but it’s also factually correct. Despite all the commentary about this ad, no one, including Tom Campbell, has even attempted to dispute the facts because the facts are true,” .. Fiorina’s campaign caused an uproar on Wednesday when it released a three-minute, 21-second...

    State Assemblyman Chuck DeVore pledged Thursday to keep his campaign "a demon-sheep-free zone." The tongue-in-cheek announcement came in response to a bizarre web video released by former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina's campaign yesterday. The video characterized former Rep. Tom Campbell, who recently joined the California Senate Republican primary, as a "FCINO" -- a fiscal conservative in name only....

    YouTube video: Description: Carly for California released FCINO, exposing Tom Campbell as a Fiscal Conservative In Name Only. Since his flip-flop into the Senate race, Campbell has been calling himself a fiscal conservative based on his time as a member of Congress nearly two decades ago, hoping that voters will ignore his recent support for more government spending, increased borrowing, a $16 billion tax hike and a 32-cent gas tax increase.
