After reading that Barbara “Boxer’s campaign manager Rose Kapolczynski [wished] “Carly Fiorina a speedy recovery and hope she is able to return to her normal schedule soon’“, I went on over to Mrs. Boxer’s web-site to see what the politician herself had to say about her rival’s illness and, well, didn’t find anything.
Seems the Democrat can’t take the time to do the decent thing and wish her opponent a speedy recovery.
As you may know, Carly was admitted to the hospital this morning due to an infection “associated with the reconstructive surgery” following her successful treatment for breast cancer. (My gal was, alas, unable to attend the campaign fundraiser I attended earlier today).
Here’s the statement from the campaign:
Carly learned more than a year and a half ago that she, like millions of women, had breast cancer. After successfully battling cancer, she had reconstructive surgery this summer and remains cancer free today. However, this morning Carly came down with an infection associated with the reconstructive surgery and, as a result, she was admitted to the hospital to receive antibiotics to treat this infection. While this will impact her campaign schedule today, Carly is upbeat and her doctors expect her to make a quick and full recovery and be back out on the campaign trail soon. Carly is looking forward to getting back to her full campaign schedule and to defeating Barbara Boxer on November 2.
Boxer should join her campaign manager and all decent Californians in wishing Carly a speedy recovery.
