You know the election season is heating up when...

Even Chris Locke provides us with a straightforward partisan post.

From the Better Late Than Never Department, the following are excerpts from a 16 September ABC News story titled McCain Economic Adviser Carly Fiorina's Golden Parachute...

Republican ticket mates John McCain and Sarah Palin Monday blasted corporate executives who leave their company with a "golden parachute" and pledged to "stop multimillion dollar payouts" to CEOs, seeming to forget their own top economic adviser Carly Fiorina walked away with $45 million, including a $21.4 million severance package when she was dismissed by Hewlett Packard in 2005.

And not-so-btw, she was fired for nearly destroying the company. HP employees were dancing in the streets when Carly was handed her walking papers. For example: "Good riddance. Colleagues still at HP report that there is open celebration in the labs and cube-farms."
